Schönbrunn Palace was built about 300 years ago. The emperors lived here in the summer. Empress Elisabeth, the legendary "Sisi", spent the first years of her marriage here. And in the century before that, the 16 children of Empress Maria Theresia wandered the rooms and corridors of this extensive building.
