On the outskirts of the city, this grandiose palace has its origins in the Middle Ages when this land held a mill, a farm, and a farmhouse. It became property of the Habsburg dynasty's rulers, who built their summer palace and gardens on the site in such grand and beautiful style that they were declared a Patrimony of Humanity by UNESCO and are an absolute must for any visitor to Vienna. These grandiose Rococo salons have over the centuries borne witness to some of the great events of history, as when the last emperor of Austria Hungary, Charles I, vacated the throne in 1918 and ushered in the republic - a moment which changed Europe forever.
