This is Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna, Austria, seen on the 26th Feb 2011.
The Palace was the summer residence of the Habsburg monarchs of Austria. The Picture shows the entrance area. Behind the large building is the area with the french gardens, the wells, the gloriette and so on. This image was the first impression for visitors to get. It is already quite impessive and makes curious for what lies behind this building. Actually this is beyond description, so i will make a series of images of that in the future ;-)
