Schwarzenberg Palace Garden

Adjoining the Belvedere garden and now belonging to the Hotel im Palais Schwarzenberg. Geoffrey Jellicoe was here in the 1930s and wrote that 'The Schwarzenberg was also laid out by Fischer von Erlach, and it is worth while entering the gardens at the rear of the palace even though it is only to enjoy the melancholy of decay. Old prints show the garden in the height of its glory, and there is a kind of sad beauty in the tall, untidy trees and the derelict fountains and pools'. Some restoration has taken place but there is more to be done.
