Palais Kinsky is a baroque palace in Vienna. It was originally built for Wirich Philipp Graf Daun, the garrison commander whose son Leopold Josef Graf Daun became a field marshall of empress Maria Theresia. It was later bought by the Kinsky family, is therefore sometimes known as Palais Daun-Kinsky. The palace underwent renovation in the late 1990ís and was restored to its former state. The palace is used for auction events, houses shops and a restaurant. It is used for the final-status negotiations between Serbian and Kosovo Albanians in EU-sponsored peace-talks. This is an image of its inner yard.

Extremely well taken and the history is fascinating, Sabine. Makes me wonder if any of these marvelous old palaces and places are used for private residential space anymore.

beautiful architecture Sabine and what strike me is just how clean it all is in Vienna. As much as I liked Prague, the one thing that disappointed me there was the graffiti on the beautiful old buildings. Do you find that in Vienna at all?

Sabine - its centered, and the lines are exactly as they are supposed to be. Good Job. As always the detail is self evident. Do more please.

While trying to create good pictures, I feel as if I am standing on the edge of Insanity. There is a door. I found myself knocking on the door. The door opened.. . . I was knocking from the inside. Oh Rats!
