If you are a lover of art, you are sure to love this place. At Schönbrunn the imperial family had 1,441 rooms to choose from, many of which are open to visitors. The Schlosspark contains a number of architectural masterpieces such as the Palm House and the zoo: the oldest zoo in the world which began in 1752 by Maria Theresa. She was known as the popular mother of the Austrian nation and was devoted to her husband: Emperor Franz I. She chose to be buried next to her husband in Stephan of Lorraine. Their tombs can be seen at the Habsburg burial crypt in the Kapuzinergruft.
