We ate breakfast twice at Palmhouse and found the standard of both food and service to be excellent. The location is a quiet oasis in the middle of this vibrant and beautiful city. Well worth a visit. So good - we wnr twice!

If visiting the palace with a Vienna Pass it is included. It is worth the walk to. A good selection of plants particularly orchids.

The Orangery was the second biggest in Europe. Well that's as maybe but you are charged €3.60 to enter in a small part of the end of the building just to see a few trees that are over wintering. If the building is in use during the winter months then it would be better to say it's closed as you... More

If you love plant and especially the palm variety and green tall palms this is a MUST. You will have to buy and extra ticket but it is totally worth it. Do not buy the kombi ticket with Wüstenhaus ( Sand house), not worth it. You will be amazed with the variety of plants and how they have been taken... More

We visited in Jan when it was below zero outside. This warmed us up nicely. There are 3 temperature zones and each were obviously humid. An impressive display of plants especially poinsettia. There is an option to visit 2 other “houses” at good rates, when you purchase a ticket. We did not have the time to do so. Even then... More

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.

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.
