These are really vast gardens. No gardening on small areas but huge lanes, immense grass areas, statues, tree areas. There are three mazes which are fun to do, a Zoo which is quite expensive (€18pp), a fantastic Neptune waterfull and a superb landscaping: dont miss it!

We went down keen to visit after reading good reviews and had to queue for 45 minutes to be told tickets that day were sold out! Didn't mind to much as there was wifi in the queue!! But managed to buy tickets for the day - I would advise everyone to book before you go to avoid the wait. Spent... More

Very beautiful and historic grounds! Very nice to see the grounds in person and there are many other sites to visit on the grounds as well.

Very little colour in this park land. The gardens are not as we would expect but more like a public park.

Good classic gardens with good views from the top (but a bit of a climb). Well worth seeing the mazes.

Beatiful place to visit on a sunny day and take a long walk from the palace to the monument and thru the gardens.

Walking in the gardens can be really enjoyable. You need to climb to Gloriette and enjoy views from its top and then have fun in the maze.

Very nice garden, huge with many plants and threes. Good exercise climbing the hill up to the Gloriette. Great view over most of Wien. There's a small train driving around the entire park making it easier to visit the uphill Gloriette. Easy getting there with the metro line. Stop 100m from the entrance to the castle

The Schoenbrunner Gardens are enormous so be prepared to do lots of walking. However it is worth the effort as the gardens are beautifully kept and very impressive. Entry to the gardens is free, although there are various attractions within the gardens, such as the palace, the zoo, the labyrinth etc and these have entry fees. The various paths and... More

The Schönbrunn Palace and Park Ensemble consists of a huge park and the palace itself. The park is huge, beautiful and very interesting. Here is the oldest zoo in Europe, a botanical garden, a labyrinth, fountains and other garden and park structures. In order to see all the sights of the Palace Park, one day may not be enough. Therefore,... 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.
