Constructed in the early 18th century, the palace combines aspects of French chateau and Viennese Baroque architecture. The fresco is above the palace's grand royal staircase. You can wander through the Imperial Hall with its stucco sculptures, colorful murals, and gold ornamentation. Although you must pay to enter the palace, you can roam the tranquil residence gardens free of charge. This site is on the UNESCO World Heritage list.

Entrance fee €7,5 for adults is but moderate.
It's a beautiful residence but very few rooms are open to public. Also information about art and history are poor inside the building. They entrance ticket is quite high compared to what the residence can offer. The garden is free and very nice.
Nice guided tour already included at the ticket price. Rich of details and history, with a lovely garden and a nice gift shop. Worth the visit.
