Things to do in Schonbrunn Palace

4.5/5 (919)

From the hunting grounds of the Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian II to the lavish summer residence of the Habsburg, the Schönbrunn Palace has a rich history that spans well over 300 years. Now a celebrated symbol of Vienna and the city’s top attraction, since 1996 this sumptuous Baroque palace has been listed as a Unesco World Heritage Site.

Of the 1441 rooms, 40 are currently open to the public and run the gamut from ornate salons to Rococo staterooms and the residential suites of Emperor Franz Joseph and wife Empress Elizabeth (aka Sisi). Admire the extravagant interiors that have changed little since the reign of Empress Maria Theresa and don’t miss historic rooms such as the Hall of Mirrors, where six-year-old Mozart performed for said empress in 1762.

The complex is also surrounded by immense gardens that are well worth a stroll. Opened to the public since 1779, they are home to a range of attractions including the Orangerie, the world’s oldest zoo, the glorious hill-top Gloriette and the somewhat misleadingly named Roman Ruins (it’s a horticultural feature). While the park is free, individual attractions require admission tickets. The palace also tends to get overcrowded during summer so it’s wise to buy tickets online in advance.

Reviews Schonbrunn Palace

3/5
Paul, 26 May 2024

“Bad directions on where to meet, not even hotel could understand , no pick up, had to travel by train. Food was limited to no choice, & no drinks, not even water. Concert was first class, not all was lost!”

“Whilst billed as such this was no Palace of Versailles. I guess once you have seen the original this copy fell a bit short of expectations. There were not many rooms open, many that were were rather small for the numbers of visitors. With big groups (ours of 30) basically just blocking the way as guides competed for best spots. The gardens are now just a public park so were extremely crowded as free to enter with planting was sparse/bland. Go to the Wurzburg residence, much more impressive.”

“I was unprepared for getting to destination on my own but figured it out. TUI excursions web site needs to have a bolder way to distinguish the difference between fully escorted to and from ship vs self travel to destination.”

“The biggest advantage of buying Sisi Combo ticket was the fast lane entrance to museums. There was a huge crowd waiting to purchase tickets and enter in the museums. With the ticket we skipped the lines.”
