surrounded

Neat! Ring the bell for the ferry boat.

Being surrounded by castles, palaces, ruins, fortresses I am sharing today some photos of one of my favorite family weekend strolls:

the former intriguing Habsburg summer residence in Laxenburg and its majestic gardens with all the picturesque castles.

Winter and Summer this place has a lot to offer. Kissing under mistletoes, feeding some 20something kg common carps in the pond, access the Franzensburg (from 1801) with the hand drawn ferry and end your walk during summer always with some ice cream at the well known Laxenburg ice cream shop.

5 walnuts for the playground at the castle and the possibility to bring the kids bikes

Look out for special events during summer at Schloss Laxenburg.
