The gardens of Schönbrunn Palace, in their colorful, formal,
Baroque designs, epitomize grandeur.
Home to the world's oldest zoo, numerous fountains, statues, a
yew maze and neatly trimmed hornbeam hedges, the park
looks much as it did during the reign of Maria Teresa, who
opened the grounds to the public in 1779.
The view from the palace, past the Grand Parterre and the
Neptune Fountain to the Gloriette pavilion.
Lost in the hedge maze. Tip from a fellow maze explorer: keep one hand on one side of the maze and follow it to the end. It may take a long time but you'll eventually get out. It's better than having an anxiety attack.
