About The Palace
Schloss Schönbrunn - or Schönbrunn Palace - was the principle summer residence of the Hapsburg rulers, their territories the precursor of the old Austro-Hungarian Empire. Located in Hietzing, Vienna, the palace was begun by Emperor Leopold I as a hunting lodge for his son, the Crown Prince Joseph. It was refurbished between 1740 and 1750, and was gifted to Empress Maria Theresa as a wedding gift. Subsequently, Emperor Franz 1 redecorated the exterior into the neoclassical style that it is treasured for today.
