Schoenbrunn Palace was Marie-Antoinette’s summer childhood home and the beautiful and tragic Sissi’s favoured residence. Mozart performed there as a child and Napoleon was so smitten he moved in — twice. And from April 30, tourists too can sojourn in Vienna’s top tourist site, in a converted suite of rooms with views over the palace gardens, even with butler, cook and horse-drawn conveyance. “This is unique in Europe,” Birgit Reitbauer from the Verkehrsbuero Austrian hotel group behind the Schoenbrunn Palace Suite told AFP during a sneak preview.
