BV640 Schloss Schoenbrunn

Schloss Sch￶nbrun (Sch￶nbrunn Palace) was constructed between 1696 and 1699 by Emperor Leopold I on land originally purchased by Emperor Maximilian II in 1569. In addition to a large palace and several smaller structures, the grounds are covered by extensive gardens and landscaping, including a zoo (Tiergarten Sch￶nbrunn) a tropical greenhouse (Palmenhouse) and an arid environment greenhouse.
