I absolutely loved the Palmenhaus in Vienna, which we made part of our day in and around the palace grounds at Schoenbrunn. Flowers and plants from across the globe are grown here in the three atriums of varying temperatures – cold, temperate and tropical.

The huge iron structure, Victorian in style, was built in 1881 and actually last of its kind to be built on mainland Europe. The central pavilion is 28m high and I wished we could climb up the stairs to look down through the canopy but the steps were roped off to visitors.

We spent a good hour strolling around the garden displays, glad of the tropical warmth as it was cold outside. And for the 4 Euros entry price it is well worth a look – such a photogenic place! Enjoy my snaps!
