Scenic drive

Nearly one hour to tour the grounds, gardens and exterior of Schonbrunn. Very enjoyable. Stopped off at one of many excellent eateries half way round.

Great place to visit and look around. The walk at the rear is good. The flowers are just begining to bloom no doubt it will be great for the summer. The fountain was not working. In the front the grounds are being prepared for the summer so there is lots of dust around. Good place to spend a couple of... More

We arrived early in the morning to escape the crowd and got some amazing photographs of the palace. It got crowded after 8.00am with tour buses arriving after that. Don't forget to walk up the hill to catch a view of Vienna.

Beautiful! There are multiple paths to the top so you can either take your time so climb straight up, which is great. There are different routes there too which were fun to explore. The views were lovely! A view like that really gives you a feel for the city and where you are. It was wonderful! Also, we went on... More

Magnificent french gardens in front of Schoenbrunn castle and the Gloriette for leisure, relax and excersice - or - for breathtaking historical influenced photos. You can just walk arround the "Schloss Schönbrunn" to the Gloriette and the "Schöbrunner Zoo" - Vienna zoo, or have a run for physical training or jogging in most magnificent historical ambiance of the world.

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.
