lovely gardens open to the public, and a great place to walk, jo or just sit. The palace, zoo and palm house etc are ticketed but the gardens open. There is a maze and an orangerie that wasn't open but the palm house was free on the Vienna Pass. Not very well signposted so take a good sense of direction... More

If you've seen the palaces in Europe, then still come here; because the gardens are amazing. The vast expanse of trees, the lawns, the maze, the statues and the hills....you can just sit here and let the breeze caress you. Vienna will captivate you, and never more than here.

Charming period gardens. Makes a lovely outing in pleasant weather. Not so much in winter, when Vienna is gray and chilly.

These are free gardens to walk around just behind the Schonbrunn Palace. I can imagine in late spring / summer they'd be amazing to walk around.

A great free attraction by entering through the side gates near the entrance. We walked right up to the 'Gloriette' where you get views over the whole of Vienna which was breathtaking even on a rainy day! I imagine in summer or even late spring there will be gorgeous flowers too. There is a very quaint and bright cafe at... 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.
