  • I was really fascinated by the Royal Palace that left me speechless for its Majesty. At some points in the Palace, much abandonment with weeds that cover of marvels, even a little bit of waste, due to the rudeness of the tourists

  • Beautiful, imposing, majestic, gigantic. When you look at it from the outside you remain open-mouthed as is the absolute protagonist of the whole context ... around her seems to disappear, everything looks tiny. Then when it gets inside the amazement increases. Beautiful frescoes, bright and beautiful colors. The rooms are huge, some walls are covered with the same fabric covering the chairs or sofas. Beautiful bassinet and the elevator at that time, I was impressed. Beautiful also the beds, bathrooms and huge mirrors ... really worth going there ... And then the exit you can visit the garden. What about is very long, beautiful ... at the end there is a spectacular waterfall, it's worth getting through. The only thing I regret is that the English garden closes at 15 so I couldn't see it. They could keep it open till 17

  • There are no words to describe the beauty and magnificence of decoration of floors, chandeliers, frescoes, all very well preserved and a visit with audio guide is really easy, then Park is truly a unique thing, to see him, we rented bikes, and it is very nice to wander along the side walkways to large central fountain, we spent a wonderful day!

  • make sure you get a bus or a coach, cause the parc is huge. very nice botanic garden at the end
  • It'll be nice if they take good care of it. Perhaps clean the fountains. There are a lot of visible trash around it and the garden in front of the palace is in bad condition. Locals tagged the building walls with graffiti and even some of the walls at the back of the palace were also vandalized. It's a shame that they're not doing their very best to preserve such historic site. This would have been really great if it's well taken care of.
  • Gardens in front of the palace are in bad condition and not very nice.
  • Badly kept gardens. Lawns and shrubs left to themselves. The water in the fishpond is completely submerged by the sodden leaves of the surrounding vegetation. The statues of the fountains are surrounded by mold and algae. I couldn't rent a bike because it was over those working (I have counted more than 40 routes, evidently the mechanic went on vacation!!!) On the other hand the Royal apartments are well kept. The audio guides that are not current with the tour required. All in all I was very sorry for the poor quality of service of the Austrian aristocracy and low.

  • Only the Park worth the price of admission! Council to inspect it all, especially the English garden on top!
