Having enjoyed the palm house in Kew Gardens in London, we wanted to give this one a try as well and were not at all disappointed. The architecture of the palm house is a beautiful sight to look at as are the insides of the building. You will find a very elegant interior as well as a great variety of... More

A beautiful green house full of surprises. There are so many beautiful and different plants in here. It was very peaceful inside and crammed full of plants. Plant names are in German and their scientific name. They are arranged by continent. All of the plants look really healthy.

And again very few reviews. I guess people don't go much there and I don't understand why. Trust me, for 5 euros you will be in informational delirium. There are so many plants you will see, that this is your only chance to see live things like vanilla or cocoa. Fair warning - be prepared to be completely wet, with... More

We walked past the Palmenhaus Schoenbrunn on the way to the Zoo. We would have liked to have had time to pop inside for a look around, but we only had time to have a quick glance of the outside. The building is pretty impressive and looks great in it's setting.

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

There are many kind of trees and plants here. Half an hour it is enough I think, unless you are a passionate and want to study the species.The fee was cheap, something like 4-5 euro/pers.

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

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.
