Rooms exceptionally well maintained, beautiful and interesting. Grounds are vast - a trip to the Gloriette provides a super view and I imagine the gardens change as summer progresses. Interesting carriage museum and lots of good eateries including super apple strudel!

As this was our first visit to Vienna everyone who we know who had been before put this as the priority not to miss place in this lovely city. It did not disappoint - if like me you like history it was wonderful to see and hear the history of this great palace. The gardens and surroundings were more than... More

of course you have to go there. of course it is beautiful. of course it is crowded. but how can you miss those beautiful rooms? we took the grand tour to see the extra rooms and believe it is worth it. Their use of audio guides is quite efficient.

Take several hours to go and I would go with the Vienna pass so you get entry into the palace. The gardens are lovely as well.

The "summer home" of Franz Joseph and Sisi, with their closest 1500 servants and advisors. Fascinating to see how the other half lives. The gardens were a bit of a disappointment, and didn't look anywhere near as nice as the pictures.

We bought tickets for the hop on hop off bus which was amazing and took us on 3 or 4 different routes so we could virtually see all and only cost 24 euros per person! Palace very impressive and beautiful grounds to walk in

The palace is magical and holds the treasures and history of 300 years of the changing tastes of the Hapsburg's. A UNESCO world heritage site, this 1400+ room Baroque palace is truly an architectural, cultural, and historical monument. While there make time to also enjoy the extensive garden surrounds. It can be reached by all modes of transport, metro, light... More

Fortunately we had a Vienna pass which allowed us to visit many of the attraction free. You need plenty of time to all of this palace both inside and out. The Vienna zoo is just alongside. Unfortunately like many places you are not allowed to take photos inside, although some tourist with their mobile phones don't seem to understand the... More

This is a must on the trail of Habsburg history for history buffs because it was Empress Maria Theresa and Emperor Francis Stephen's home. One visit was sufficient. Some rooms were closed for annual renovation, but this was not advertised anywhere on websites. No photos are allowed anywhere inside the rooms. A few rooms in particular, are outstanding and worthy... More

Get a ticket and enjoy the beauty. Most tourist would not miss this impressive palace and gardens. The Baroque palace is one of the most important architectural, cultural, and historical monuments in the country. A major tourist attraction including the gardens.

Staying in Hietzing

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
