among the trees

Schloss Schönbrunn / Vienna, Austria
Schönbrunn Palace is one of the most important cultural sites in Austria and since the 1960s has also been one of the major tourist attractions in Vienna. While the Palace was architecturally commanding in its scale, I found the surrounding grounds to be much more interesting. Unfortunately, we were there in late November so the numerous gardens were not in bloom but I'm sure in the spring and summer, the landscaping is spectacular. This was taken in the arboretum area and reminded me of parts of Central Park in Manhattan.

Arnold Schwarzenegger was called the "Austrian Oak". Apparently he's not the only one.
