Owner description: The Cultural World Heritage Site of Schönbrunn Palace is Austria's most frequently visited tourist attraction. In the palace the residential and state rooms with their original furnishings and decorations convey an authentic impression of the imperial lifestyle. The park and gardens surrounding the palace make Schönbrunn in a unique synthesis of Baroque art as well as providing a convenient and highly popular recreational area for Vienna's population.

Once you seen one you've kinda seen them all. Nothing in particular really stood out to me at least that i can remember.

Schönbrunn Palace is a former imperial 1,441-room Rococo summer residence in modern Vienna, Austria. One of the most important cultural monuments in the country, since the 1960s it has been one of the major tourist attractions in Vienna. The palace and gardens illustrate the tastes, interests, and aspirations of successive Habsburg monarchs,
The name Schönbrunn (meaning "beautiful spring"), has its roots in an artesian well from which water was consumed by the court.
After World War II and during the Allied Occupation of Austria (1945–1955) Schönbrunn Palace, which was empty at the time, was requisitioned to provide offices for both the British Delegation to the Allied Commission for Austria and for the Headquarters for the small British Military Garrison present in Vienna.
Later it was used for important events such as the meeting between John F. Kennedy and Nikita Khrushchev in 1961.
UNESCO catalogued Schönbrunn Palace on the World Heritage List in 1996, together with its gardens, as a remarkable Baroque ensemble and example of synthesis of the arts.

Amazing garden, perfect for a quite one. Walking around till the top where the gate is, perhaps grab a coffee and come down again

Opulance, by any measure, only comparable to Versailles. Take the long tour. The audio guide provides historical insights not taught in schools.

This palace is out of the city and best way to go there is take a metro. You can spend easily a day here. The palace painted Yellow and looks magnificent. The garden is huge and best time to go is when the flowers bloom, looks like a carpet and maintained well. The zoo is small one woudl not say anything great about it. Its worth a visit :). The fee is for Palace and Zoo not for garden...
