Today's shot: The Palm House (Palmenhous) in the Schönbrunn park
"The Palm House in the palace park at Schönbrunn is the largest of its kind on the European continent. It houses dozens of Mediterranean, tropical and subtropical plants.
Emperor Franz Joseph commissioned the construction of the Palm House in 1882. Architect Franz Segenschmid had his hands full: with a length of 111 meters, 2,500 square meters in area and 4,900 square meters of glass, it is the largest Palm House on the European continent. 45,000 glass panes were installed.
The Palm House is divided into three pavilions and three climate zones, which are connected to each other by tunnel-like corridors. The tallest room exhibits plants from the Mediterranean region, the Canary Islands, South Africa, America and Australia. The northern room houses plants from China, Japan, the Himalayas and New Zealand. Tropical and subtropical plants grow in the third area. Plants on display in the Palm House include a 23 meter-tall palm and in spring/summer the largest water lily in the world (with a leaf diameter of 1.20 meters). Temperatures range between 8 and 17 degrees Celsius."
I will later post some closer pictures of this beautiful glass house.

  •   oceanofchaos Thank you, @americaninvienna that would be a lot of fun. I will keep you in mind if we ever go! I have only traveled within the states and to Mexico. I finally got my passport and hope that in a few years I'll be able to go out and do more traveling, if I'm being realistic with myself. We just decided to downsize everything here and basically purchased a house on wheels (fifth wheel/rv) 1mon
  •   americaninvienna Traveling is so cool and you learn so much about yourself and the world,but yeah gotta stay realistic even I have dreams to travel to places but with my budget it cant manifest right now hehe @oceanofchaos a house on wheels sounds pretty fun! 1mon
