As residents of Kew near the Royal Botanic Gardens, we take an interest in botanic gardens. We were visiting Schoenbrunn and were amazed by the lovely palm house. It is not as elegant as Kew but it is about as large. Internally it is not as well kept as Kew as there are signs of commercialism with fridges to sell... More

Truly amazing piece of iron architecture... Quite big and with some nice collection of plants and palms from around the tropic places... If you are in Schonbrunn than this is really nice addition to all other attractions here... Recommended even if you just walk around this lovely structure... but if you are plant lover than surely recommended to visit the... More

My family and I visited the Palm House in Schoenbrunn Palace. If it hadn't been a part of our Winter Pass Plus probably we wouldn't have visited it. But in the end we were pleasantly surprised. There is a big number of palms, trees and flowers, colourful and strange, from all over the world. It is quite humid inside and... More

Part of the butterfly house, this atrium is a very unusual venue for lunch/dinner. Always busy (best to book) and buzzing. Food is good, but not outstanding. When the weather is good, there's a lovely patio area outside where you can sit and watch - a popular pasttime in Vienna. Worth a look.

The woman on the reception desk was so rude that I decided not to go inside. She was very argumentative and difficult and dispite my German and her English used few other words then "NO !". As I opened the door to leave having not visited the palm house she said in perfect English "Go home stupid Irish man" I... More

We made the trip out to Schoenbrunn, hoping to visit the large conservatory. There was a sign saying that it was closed until October 2013 (for renovation?) It was certainly impressive from the outside. We were referred to the smaller glasshouse on the other side of the road, with displays of desert plants and animals.

Very beautiful on the outside, just another green house on the inside. Have seen much better hot houses, and I suggest if visitors have seen great hot houses before, don't go out of your way to see this one. I am glad I didn't pay extra to see this, it was included in my Winter Pass. Just walk around the... More

Staying in Hietzing

Neighborhood Profile
Vienna’s 13th district has always been in the shadow of Schönbrunn Palace and its gardens, but has interesting hidden gems waiting to be discovered. Allow half a day for the imposing Habsburg residence and the gardens with Gloriette belvedere. Reserve the other half to discover the secret charms of this posh residential neighborhood. Sneak out of the gardens at Hietzinger Tor (Hietzing Gate) and head down Hietzinger Hauptstrasse for Kaiserpavillon (Emperor’s pavilion), an Art Nouveau gem right on top of U4’s metro railtracks. At local institutions Café Dommayer and restaurant Plachutta you can mingle with residents, their families and friends. Dommayer has risen to fame since waltz king Johann Strauss and his orchestra performed there regularly. If you want to go beyond private villa gazing visit Klimtvilla and Hermesvilla. Art Nouveau genius Gustav Klimt had his last studio in a now beautifully renovated villa, which is open during spring and summer. Hermesvilla at Lainzer Tiergarten animal enclosure and nature park is a must for all romantics and fans of Empress Sissi.
