The glories of imperial Austria are nowhere brought together more convincingly than in the Schönbrunn Palace (Schloss Schönbrunn) complex. Imperial elegance, interrupted only by tourist traffic, flows unbroken throughout the grounds. This is Austria's primary tourist site, although few stay long enough to discover the real Schönbrunn (including the fountain with the little maiden carrying the water jar, after whom the complex is named). The outbuildings served as entertainment centers when the court moved to Schönbrunn in summer, accounting for the zoo, the priceless theater, the fake Roman ruins, the greenhouses, and the walkways. In Schönbrunn you step back three centuries into the heart of a powerful and growing empire and follow it through to defeat and demise in 1918.
