___ Famous Landmarks - Satellite View of Schönbrunn Palace

Satellite View of Schönbrunn Palace using Google Earth Data

Satellite view is showing the baroque styled Schönbrunn Palace, one of the most important cultural monuments in Austria and today one of the major tourist attractions in Vienna, Austria's capital city.
The palace and gardens illustrate the tastes, interests, and aspirations of various Habsburg monarchs. Emperor Leopold I commissioned architect Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach to design a new palace that follows that of the Palace of Versailles. Construction began in 1696 and after three years the first festivities were held in the newly built middle part of the palace.
