Castles and Palaces
With Donald Macleod.
4: Schonbrunn. Haydn climbed the scaffolding while it was being built, Mozart played there as a boy, and it was the scene of at least two famous musical contests. Napoleon stayed there, his son died there, and visiting dignitaries were entertained there during the post-Napoleonic
Congress of Vienna. The deep-yellow Palace of Schonbrunn seems to epitomise the grandeur of the Austro-Hungarian empire in the time of Maria Theresa and Josef II.
