Schönbrunn Palace

When I was a child I always watched a TV show about Empress Elisabeth and her life. It was made for children and therefore not a 1:1 rendition of her real life (e.g. in the series she had blonde hair when in real life her hair was dark haha) but ever since I've watched it I wanted to visit Schönbrunn Palace.
And of course when you visit Vienna this is on top of your To-Do-List!

My aunt told me that when you visit Schönbrunn you basically just walk around the gardens and you can visit the Palm House but there is not much about Elisabeth. So before we went to Schönbrunn, we went to the Hermesvilla first.
This is the house where Elisabeth spent most of her time when she was in Vienna. It is not directly in Vienna but in the forest near Vienna I think. It's very beautiful though unfortunately it is being restored and there is scaffolding all around it. There is also an exhibition in it, so you can see how Elisabeth lived there.
After that we went to Schönbrunn. Finally!
I can't really talk about it a lot, just look at the pictures. But when you go there you should go the Palm House, too.

Hope you got an impression of the Palace and the surroundings :) It's so gorgeous there!
