This is an amazing sightseeing must in Vienna. Within only ten minutes tram ride from the city centre you are dropped off just in front of the main gates. Taking in the panorama of this huge palace is quite something and certainly reminiscent of Versailles in Paris. There are 2 types of main entry ticket, the Imperial tour or Grand... More

A beautiful palace and gardens with a good audio guide tour of the main state rooms. However a lot of the house is not accessible and it would be lovely to see some of the other parts such as the servants' quarters. The gardens, although a little drab in February, are very well laid out and nice for a stroll.... More

A must visit in Vienna. The palace is just beautiful inside and out. The entrance fees are a bit high but it was worth it. The palace and its gardens are huge so visiting will take a whole day at least. I recommend taking a walk inside the very large gardens, each part is filled with different types of plants... More

We paid for the grand tour which is a few more euros than the imperial but you see twice as many rooms which turned out to be the more interesting ones. I thought I would be bored but I enjoyed it. The park is huge so if you want to do both allow plenty of time.

You can enjoy the Palace at its own, the small tour Is Impressive enough. As a real Hit: take Time for the garden, Walk Up to gloriette along the fountains, nip an Espresso (kleiner Schwarzer) with a majestic view down over the Garden to the Palace and Parts of Vienna in the rear.

The palace is quite amazing. The audio guide that comes free with the (steep) ticket is very explanatory and explains in detail what the visitor is seeing. If I would want something more, it might have been some preliminary information into the imperial genealogy tree so I wouldn't have been lost each time a name was mentioned.

Schonbrunn is a beautiful place to spend the day. Just knowing that royalty once stepped where you step helps you go back in time. Take a moment to look at the floors and know Marie Antoinette played there. Amazing history here.

The palace and the gardens are really wonderful. The zoo next to the palace is worthwhile visiting. By the side of the gardens there is a very cute cafe

Staying in Hietzing

Neighbourhood Profile
Hietzing
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 Hietzinger Hauptstrasse for Kaiserpavillon (Emperor’s pavilion), an Art Nouveau gem right on top of U4’s metro railtracks. At local institutions Café Dommayer and restaurant Plachutta you can mingle with residents, their families and friends. Dommayer has risen to fame since waltz king Johann Strauss and his orchestra performed there regularly. If you want to go beyond private villa gazing visit Klimtvilla and Hermesvilla. Art Nouveau genius Gustav Klimt had his last studio in a now beautifully renovated villa, which is open during spring and summer. Hermesvilla at Lainzer Tiergarten animal enclosure and nature park is a must for all romantics and fans of Empress Sissi.
