If you are willing to walk up the hill you won't be disappointed by the views you will get of the city and the mountains.

One of the most spectacular public parks I've been to for its greenery, gardens, and walkability. Highly recommend

Beautiful well manicured and formal gardens. Quite crowded and did not get to see zoo or orangerie maybe next time. Slightly spoilt by the equipment for the nightly concerts.

Plenty of vantage points and photo opportunities with views across the city and even a sneaky view of the baby buffalo through the zoo fence.

I wandered through these massive gardens after touring the palace. The flowers and shrubbery are so well maintained. You could spend hours just leisurely walking around. The statues,monuments and fountains are so detailed. Such a beautiful piece of history that has been preserved.

The gardens are not to be missed, they are well laid out tastefully colourful and the aromas are especially lovely, the scents of the roses are amazing The statues add to the splendour of these magnificent gardens. Highly recommend this wonderful place

It may have been the time of year (mid-May), but the view was somewhat disappointing. The garden looked nothing like the advertisements. Neptune's Fountain was magnificent, though, and makes the trek worthwhile.

A great place for a stroll or a long walk depending on your mood. Whilst we were there, they were preparing for a classical music concert. Nice cafe with very affordable food and drink

I'm so glad I took a stroll in the Schonbrunner Gardens. First of all they are free. The gardens in May are beautiful with freshly manicured lawns and flower plots and many places to sit and enjoy. There is a beautiful fountain and also a botanical summer house. At the west end of the grounds near Hietzing station/metro there is... More

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.
