Laxenburg Palace

sunny

Laxenburg, situated just about 15 km south of Vienna,
was the preferred residence of the imperial family during spring and summer seasons.

Castle is a bit artificial, alike a theatrical scenery.
It said, Laxenburg Castle has never been a real residence, but but more used as a storage for collection of arms and relics. In any case the emperor and his court were among the guests and brought aristocracy and high society to Laxenburg. This implied infrastructure and high standards of service, so the village grew up nearby.

- lovely place for keeping business. I liked the building, especially large windows.
