It might mean “beautiful spring,” but Vienna’s Schoenbrunn Palace is a must-see in every season. Sip gluehwein at the Christmas market or wander the extensive gardens. This palace will show you why it's Austria’s most popular tourist destination.
Vienna will forever be the global capital of classical music. Catch one of the daily Mozart and Strauss concerts in the historic Orangery. Booking in advance is recommended.
Find a map of the grounds fountains, mazes, labyrinths and botanical gardens at the info counter. For 7 euro you can even ride the Panorama train on a 55 minute guided tour.
Of the park’s nine cafes, Cafe Gloriette is the best kept secret. Atop Gloriette hill, it offers a breathtaking view of the palace and its grounds, not to mention coffee and cake.
Take a walk through imperial history -- a guided audio tour is included with your ticket. The residential and ceremonial rooms seem to go on forever, each more grand than the next.
The Schoenbrunn zoo is the oldest zoo in the world and has won the title of Europe’s Best three times.
It is, after all, Austria’s most-visited site. Schoenbrunn Palace is off the U4 Schoenbrunn stop, about a fifteen minute metro ride from the center of Vienna. Opening times for the gardens vary by season, but try to arrive around 8:30 when the palace opens daily. You will thank yourself when you see the crowd at noon.
Avoid paying an entrance fee for each garden and the palace separately, and opt for a combination pass instead. The packages range from the Classic Pass to more luxurious packages like Sisi’s Treasures, which includes a three course meal and concert in the Orangery.

What People Are Saying About Schonbrunn Palace
For the price, it was nice tour. Skipping the line is good idea, but once you enter, there will be more lines you can not skip. Although I opted for the tour in english, the guide was speaking french (besides english), and it was very confusing for the most of the time.
The coach tour commentary in both English and Spanish was most confusing and left the ears feeling battered. His trying to describe places in two languages as the coach rushed by and fought with other traffic was most unsatisfactory. We felt that we had learned virtually nothing about Vienna. I think a single language walking tour would probably have been better. The Palace was impressive but the tour was a little rushed, again not helped by the dual language commentary.
There is so much to see in Vienna. This was a great tour to start with as it gives the locations of all of the important buildings with some history. The Palace was wonderful and the tour guide did a great job.
If you do not have the Printed voucher is a helada che to access to the activities
Highly recommended for people who want the flexibility of spending as much or as little time at any particular sight without the concern of having to stick with a guide all the time and adhering to a timetable.
