I have previously mentioned the cafeteria that we eat in most days, originally built as a 'house' for the Princess of the Emporer who lived in Schloss Laxenburg (my office building). This building has the same architectural style of high ceilings, chandeliers and artwork galore. I thought I would share with you some snapshots from our not so humble 'food court'.
Warning: There Be Lions. Munich had them and I seem to be noticing them around Vienna and Laxenburg, lots of statues of lions. Its not only in Africa...
The photo on the right shows the Oval Room, the main dining area (there are many small rooms within the Schloss Restaurant).
This could be mistaken for a piece of art on the wall but is in fact part of the scene from the ceiling.
The next shows the meeting room complete with mirror topped table. Some of the YSSPers booked it for a lunch meeting. It felt very wrong to eat off plastic trays in such a fancy room. They even put fresh roses on the table for us that day.
Finally a photo at dusk over the back garden of the Schloss Restaurant. The yellow building positively glows as the rays of the sun disappear behind the clouds.
