Palmenhaus

Landmark in Schloss Schönbrunn & Around

Londoners may think they're experiencing déjà vu on sighting the Palm House, built in 1882 by Franz Segenschmid as a replica of the one in London’s Kew Gardens. Inside is a veritable jungle of tropical plants from around the world, in various climactic zones. It was the last such iron and glass pavilion to be constructed in continental Europe.
