Amazing fountain at the top! Great views, cafe at the top to wet your whistle and catch your breath! Well worth the hike and it’s free!

The Gloriette atop the gardens offers stunning views of Vienna and the palace gardens. The gardens were being planted. there is restaurant on the top that charges top dollar for a glass of water. Take your own

I had visited this place a long time ago and so made it a point to revisit the gardens and the Gloriette this time round and can safely say that I was not the least disappointed. It was so nice walking along the passages and...More

Visit in the Spring to Fall to get the best scenery of this fabulous garden. Also, some attraction (like labyrinths and Glorinet) aren't open in the winter months - check their website for details. The garden is free for all to visit.

We went in the "winter" season to Vienna, and so these gardens were not at their best. However with free entry you can still climb up to the Gloriette which offers a panoramic view of the city. It is quite a steep walk, but is...More

This garden would probably be better in late spring and early summer. I was a little disappointed that there were no spring flowers on view. There is an excellent café at the entrance and lots of people were walking the grounds. Toilet facilities are expensive...More

Find it more than adequate that Tripadvisor considered gardens of Schonbrunn Palace worth separate reviews. They are impressive in any season. Although we visited in winter, we still took the walk all the way up to Gloriette, and the view over Vienna and the Palace...More

Truly massive and spectacular gardens with a lot of interesting alleys, statues, small gardens, etc. Definitely worth a trip.

Nice to walk there in every season. Winter is cold and windy, but the view from the top is amazing. You must see it.

Not sure if there are still blooms in October, but even in May, when we were there, not too many can be seen. The greenery and beautiful trees are still worth a visit, we think! Have a good visit!

Don't think you need a ticket for the places outside the palace. There is an entrance at the right side when you face the palace. Everyone just walks in... even locals go there to jog on a regular basis. Don't believe the... More
