Full description
Begin your guided tour with a walk through the magnificent gardens. Learn about the Baroque landscaping principle of interlaced nature and architecture. Approach the Gloriette, a huge triumphal arch situated on a hilltop with panoramic views of Vienna’s woods. Hear how the military victories under Empress Maria Theresa shaped the Hapsburg Dynasty’s political and cultural dominance in Europe. Learn about the opening of the gardens to the public in 1779 and how Schönbrunn Palace became the focal point of Austria’s imperial policy and the center of court life. Then, enter the former summer residence and see how the next generation of Hapsburg rulers also put their stamp on Schönbrunn. Visit the Franz-Joseph and Elisabeth Apartments and immerse yourself in the story of a couple torn apart by the burdens of state. Learn about the spiral staircase commissioned by Empress Sisi, leading from her official rooms to a private entrance from which she could flee from the palace to the gardens, before it was removed in 1920. Marvel at the unique Millions Room, with its antique miniatures and wall hangings.
