Local Sightseeing: Schloss Laxenburg

Laxenburg Palace was one of the Habsburg residences, not far from Vienna with a charming park area.

Emperor Joseph I and Empress Elisabeth I spent their honeymoon at the Laxenburg Palace. Until today, the palace and park are popular wedding locations.

This post is part of my monthly series Local Sightseeing. Living in Vienna, I have of course lots of architectural, historical and artistic sights basically in front of my house. However, the more rural Niederösterreich (lower Austria) has some unknown or forgotten sights, some of which I will present in this monthly series.
