Best to visit when the weather is good, this is a lovely classical (?) Viennese palace with impressive gardens. Worth a walk around, and generally not too over-crowded.

What a wonderful day it was walking around the palace. The pictures on line do it no justice. You can't see the size and the beauty in pics.

Go to this palace and to the zoo. If you decide to walk the gardens it's worth it. YPU can metro from the city is under 20 minutes. You can do the zoo and gardens in a day. So worth it.

Schonbrunn Palace can be a perfect day trip at your Vienna trip itinerary. U4 Metro line will take you to Schonbrunn palace. The station name is Schonbrunn itself. The Palace is quite big to roam and it will take at least 3-4 hours for a complete visit from outside/insde only. Royal and Majestic palace with a beautiful garden at the... More

Vienna itself can be almost overwhelming in the quality and scope of its architecture. Like the empire it represents, this palace seems to meet the horizon. Loved the conservatory as well, especially wonderful to step out of the cold and snow into an indoor Eden. Easy to get to by train, and wonderful cafes nearby.

This is the most beautiful site in all of Vienna. You get a real taste of the life of the imperial family. You can do the audio tour, or for 3 euros more per person, you can do a guided tour. I highly recommend a guide. I had Paul which who spoke with a lot of drama and was great... More

My first visit to the Palace was over a decade ago so I expected to hear or see that something had been changed or added to the tour. The tour was very similar to what I remember the first time around although there was a little less emphasis on Sisi and more on other family members. Your buy a ticket... More

The great thing about taking a train slightly outside of Vienna is that when you get to the Schonbrunn Palace, you really do feel like you're making an entrance. And if you're going to visit a palace, make an entrance! Schonbrunn was easy to get to on the train from Vienna. Plenty of signs point you in the right direction... More

We did a quick tour on a cold January day as part of a Vienna Tour. The rooms are majestic and beautiful. Lots of information from the tour guide who pointed out details we may not have noticed. It was busy and I would imagine that early January wasn't a peak time. It was too cold outside although we ran... More

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.
