Beautiful day, well spent day here. We had taken the Vienna pass so entry was free for us, otherwise could be expensive for certain travelers. Green green green everywhere and well connected by tube/hop-on-off buses!

Although entry to Vienna’s grandest palace is pricey, visitors can stroll the delightful gardens for free. Schloss Schönbrunn is a horticultural wonder, with sumptuous planting and pretty fountains, and to wander through it is an absolute joy. Best regards, Dr. Vorravee Pattaravongvisut Man on the...More

Very nice gardens, definitely worth the visit along with the Schonbrunn Pallace. We visited them in December but I think its much better to see them in spring or summer. The gardens are well taken care of, you can see this by the tree line....More

Travelling with young children aged 14 and 10 the sprawling gardens and the organerie was a fulfilling experience to us all. After visiting the palace and the organerie we spent many hours in the garden and the greens. The Wiener Schnitzel in the garden cafe...More

The gardens are mostly behind Schonbrunn, but also on the sides. The garden are is quite large and we did not have enough time with only around 45 minutes as I recall. It would have been really nice to have three hours just to see...More

These gardens are huge, beautifully laid out and complementary to the schloss. The view of the Gloriette from the gardens - and the gardens from the Gloriette are quite remarkable.

Nice walk. Good views from the Gloriette (the upper building in the park). Cafe Residenz is nice and their Apple strudel making lessons are highly entertaining.

Only 30 minutes by Underground train from the centre of Vienna, this massive Park allows visitors to enjoy great views over the city and some unexpected wildlife. Do visit the Palm House and Desert experience.

Even on a wet, soggy, just barely-above-freezing day, the Schonbrunn gardens were absolutely beautiful. The view from the Gloriette is not to be missed, despite the difficult walk up the hill.

Not sure if there are still blooms in October, but even in May, when we were there, not too many can be seen. The greenery and beautiful trees are still worth a visit, we think! Have a good visit!

Don't think you need a ticket for the places outside the palace. There is an entrance at the right side when you face the palace. Everyone just walks in... even locals go there to jog on a regular basis. Don't believe the... More

Hi Tripadvisors As I read the reviews I find there are paid and free gardens in the attraction. As I have kept one complete day for the palace and zoo can someone suggest should I shell out more euros for the privy and orangery or the free one is good enough for the pictures. Having said that I want to mention that I have been to Versailles before and found them very beautiful. I will travel with my parents who're in their 70s and we will take the panorama train for inside the premises. ...More
