On a visit to Carnuntum, the Ancient Roman period comes back to life. Carnuntum, the imperial city, is born again. For the first time anywhere in the world, a part of an Ancient Roman city was reconstructed at the open-air museum in Petronell. Baroque splendor and zest for life are in the air at Schloss Hof ...
During the baroque era, Vienna society discovered the vast expanses of the Marchfeld and gently rolling hills of the Leithagebirge as relaxing refuges and profitable hunting grounds. Families who took pride in themselves built a country estate there.
