Long walk on Shyonbrunns park

Shyonbrunn’s (Schlosspark Schonbrunn) palace park

This walk will take from you the whole day. Therefore postpone all the affairs and it is weakened walk.

In the world a little such faultless palace parks as Shenbrunn (Schlosspark Schonbrunn). When we have come to park, first simply twisted the heads in the various parties, admiring longish alleyka and smart beds. The fine park complex decorates a large quantity of fountains and statues which disappear behind surprisingly exactly cut bushes. We knew that there are true tropical thickets from exotic plants, a Japanese garden, a unique collection of cactuses, everything not to list. But that will understand all artful design of avenues of palace park heavy, nobody waited. Though that unusual, after all in the beginning the park thought as a labyrinth. Members of an imperial family walked in due time on its paths, at once enjoying a cool landscape and having a good time in search of the shortest way to an exit.

At present on greenish back streets we walk, trying to choose a true route which will lead to park sights. To us has had luck, we have understood disorder and left to the House of palm trees and the desert House, have visited Gloriyetta’s fine pavilion and have carried out a lot of time in Shyonbrunn’s zoo. Yes, and still we have found 12 symbols of the Zodiac hidden in back streets of a complex.

Labyrinth (Irrgarten) (photo: gernotp)

To us it was clear that the labyrinth was created a long interval of time, since 1698. the 1st planning clasped the immense district broken into 4 independent parts. In the centre on an eminence there was a pavilion in what it was possible to take rest, from pavilion the beautiful view of the imposing area differentiated by exactly cut bush revealed. Within the XIX century from the wide district significant slices were cut off, process went evenly, but by 1892 the labyrinth has stopped to exist, because has been rooted absolutely out. But according to the escaped historical documents in 1998 it have returned. At present in the general availability there are 1715 square metres on which it is possible to wander for hours.

By all means it is necessary to visit a Japanese garden. In it the Japanese landscape which consists from usual for the Country of a rising sun of parts is recreated. There is a tea pavilion, stone lamps and even falls. In a Japanese garden always there is a lot of water therefore we were charmed in hot summer day by a cool of reservoirs and аква streams. Decorative cherry trees, Japanese maples and rhododendrons do in a garden indescribably distinguished atmosphere, characteristic only to the rising sun country.

Gloriyetta’s (Gloriette) pavilion

To take rest from walk on a garden we have solved in Gloriyetta’s pavilion in what there is a cafe. There to get, it is necessary to rise on the top of a hillock. The pavilion has been constructed in 1775, the historical inscription informing descendants has remained that the building has been constructed during an era of board of Maria-Terezii.

With the fine survey terrace located at height of 20 metres, the marvellous view of Vienna and of Shenbrunn’s Palace reveals. Helicoid lifting has led us not only only to beautiful types and to absolutely tremendous cup of coffee.

But exotic on it does not come to the end, some terraces, leading uphill, have been given under the zoo 1st in the world. Here we have spent some imperceptible hours, admiring touching pandas, plush koalas, giants elephants and rhinoceroses. Shenbrunn’s zoo conducts also night tours about which it is necessary to agree beforehand. After all not including mammals who are awake in the afternoon, exotic birds, snakes and bats whom it is very curious to watch a night here are brought together.
