Really depends on the season, obviously

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

This is one of my favorite places in Vienna. I recommend you visit the gardens in the spring when roses are blooming.

You can admire the Castle, the garden and breathtaking views of Vienna when you walk around Schonbrunner Gardens. I def recommend spending 2-3 hrs here. There are paid toilets on the right side of the Gloriette (2 Euros)

After visiting the palace inside its only fitting to explore the sizeable grounds and gardens that surround the palace including the huge waterfall and hill top statue as well as walks and parades with avenues of trees that are wonderfully relaxing to walk amongst. and its free !

We went on a tour bus which stopped for a minute. Would have been more interesting if we were allowed to go out and take pictures.

Although best appreciated in the summer, when the Maze is open and the gardens are in bloom, the walk to the Gloriette gives you a sense of the grandeur of Schoenbrunn even with frozen fountains and bone chilling winds. Stop at the café for a hot chocolate to warm up and capture a series of images of the scope of... More

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.
