    December 8th, 2019 - Probably the oldest building in Laxenburg. After 1306 Habsburg spring and autumn residence. Medieval building core recognizable in the inner courtyards 😊👍👍

    The Schlosspark Laxenburg is one of the most important historical landscape gardens in Europe. Since the Middle Ages, this extensive park has been expanded to its present size of 280 hectares. In addition to picturesquely staged landscapes, valuable woods and unique staffage buildings enrich this overall work of art. In addition to the Old Palace and the Blue Court there are a variety of pleasure buildings, mystical grottos, temples or even the medieval-looking tournament place to discover.

    Until the end of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy, Laxenburg was an essential place of residence for the Habsburgs. This tradition began with Emperor Charles VI. Maria Theresa also built a long, continuous avenue from Schönbrunn, namely on the route of today's Schönbrunner Allee to Laxenburg. The Laxenburg Railway, which no longer exists today, was also built especially for the imperial court between the southern railway in Mödling and Laxenburg.

    Until the end of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy, Laxenburg was an essential place of residence for the Habsburgs. Emperor Franz Joseph I and Empress Elisabeth spent their honeymoon in Laxenburg in 1854. Two of her four children - Gisela (1856–1932) and Crown Prince Rudolf (1858–1889) - were born at Laxenburg Castle. The last emperor, Karl I, resided almost permanently in Laxenburg in 1917/1918 because he had the Army High Command in Baden near Vienna, which he personally led, very close by and was able to maintain political contacts without being constantly watched by Viennese. In 1945 the palace and large parts of the park were occupied by the Soviet Army. In 1955 the castle was in a very bad condition. In 1962 the "Schloss Laxenburg Betriebsgesellschaft mbH" for palace and park, formed from representatives from Lower Austria and Vienna, was founded. The agricultural estate administration remained in the municipal administration of the City of Vienna. [2] [3]
