The other palace
The palace referenced in the title is the other royal residence, the Schönbrunn. I have decided to visit it before heading for the airport, on Monday morning. Since the palace is a mere 2 kilometres away from my friend’s place, reaching it takes about 20 minutes.
For most of the 2 kilometres, you are slowly descending. 53 meters of descent is actually quite something. If I would have stopped in the middle of the road with a telephoto lens camera, I would probably have got quite a nice shot, since you can glimpse the palace from the hillside.
At 1441 rooms big, the Schönbrunn is quite a sight to behold. I have taken a tour of it on my previous visit and have quite thoroughly enjoyed it.
Discussing the interiors with my friends, I picked on the fact they didn’t like it and found it quite creepy. I guess the truth is out there, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, etc. If you ask me, I’d recommend checking it.
