We booked the basic tour of the house - personally I found it just too crowded. You aren't allowed to take photos inside and have to enter according to the time of your ticket. We listened to the audio guide which gives you all the...More

This palace is called the Austrian Versailles and the name is appropriate, as it is huge! Expect to spend several hours here: a guided tour is recommended. The works of art are stunning, but there are lots of other lovely features - I loved the...More

What an amazing building! The audio tour is great and easy to use and you can take your own time going round. The decor is quite incredible. Well worth seeing.

A little out of town and best reached by the metro, this palace is grand. Lots of history and lots of exhibits and lots about Sisi. Look out for the child portrait of Marie Antoinette, the princess who married King Louis XVI of France, underwent...More

Vienna’s 13th district has always been in the shadow
of Schönbrunn Palace and its gardens, but has
interesting hidden gems waiting to be discovered.
Allow half a day for the imposing Habsburg residence
and the gardens with Gloriette belvedere. Reserve the
other half to discover the secret charms of this posh
residential neighbourhood. Sneak out of the gardens at
Hietzinger Tor (Hietzing Gate) and head down

That is quite a long walk. It is very easy to use the public transportation services.
