Schönbrunn Palace (or Schloss Schönbrunn) is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Vienna, visited by 3.8 million visitors in 2017 alone. The palace was the summer residence of the Habsburgs, including Emperor Franz Joseph and his wife Empress Elisabeth, better known as Sisi. With 1,441 rooms, the palace was a stunning example of Baroque architecture with Rococo interiors, and visitors can explore the restored Imperial Apartments as well as the stunning gardens, which contain a maze, fountains, statues, and the Gloriette. Ticket queues on the day can be extremely long, so book in advance to skip the line!

Adapt Your Clothes to the WeatherWhile it can get very hot on the large grounds in the summer, even if there is a chance of rain, be prepared accordingly to avoid getting wet. Since there are longer distances to cover in the castle and the park, sturdy shoes should also be worn.

Schönbrunn Palace: The Most Important Sights

The 445-acres (180-hectare) site around the Baroque palace was the summer residence of the Holy Roman Emperor and the Austrian imperial family until 1806. Before that, the site was already the location of a hunting lodge.
Here is a selection of the most important sections at Schönbrunn. For the Imperial Carriage Museum Schönbrunn and the Schönbrunn Zoo there is information and tickets on separate pages.


The representative halls and private living quarters of Sisi, Franz and Maria Theresa are accessible here within the framework of the entrance fees. The rooms are sumptuously paneled with gold, exotic woods and other elements. In addition to the Imperial Tour, which revolves primarily around the famous imperial couple, the Grand Tour covers additional areas of Schönbrunn Palace.

The Palace's Garden

In the baroque park there are over 30 statues from ancient mythology and numerous fountains. Particularly worth mentioning here are the Neptune Fountain, but also Mazes and Labyrinth. A climb up to the Gloriette is worthwhile because of the magnificent view of Schönbrunn and Vienna. Alternatively, the Excursion Train Schönbrunn can also be taken to the viewpoint and other stops.


For those with a sweet tooth, the Strudel Show in Schönbrunn, which takes place several times a day, is particularly recommended: here, pastry chefs explain the individual steps involved in making a genuine Viennese apple strudel - of course, guests are also served a piece afterwards! It is worth booking in advance for this special performance.
