If you are still living inside of the cult of Romy Schneider, let’s forget everything you know! In this mansion house Elisabeth of Wittelsbach passed only 8 times in her life! She was an extremely vain and inconstant woman. Her unstable personality made it complicated the possibility for the integration. This facility it’s inside one of the most amused parks of Vienna, and the halls are fulfilled with good photo – topics. Despite of this I think is terrible absurd that even in the 21. century the Austrians believe that their language is spoken everywhere. This foolish and uncomprehending behavior is not good for the tourism. Above every single exhibition guideline the descriptions are in german without an appropriate english translation. Please, don’t come with your cheap information maps, the two-language is synonym of acceptance and conformation!

If you are in Vienna and would like to visit not only the central districts of the city, I highly recommend to take time for this wonderful place. Hermesvilla has been used as a hunting lodge, but it is really a dream palace in the middle of the gorgeous Lainz woods, now part of the Lainz zoo. It takes some time to find it, but I think it is worth the effort. I went from the city centre/Western railway station by tram no. 60 in the direction of Rodaun until Hermesstrasse in Speising. There I changed to bus 55A which took me right up to the main gate of the Lainz zoo. From here there is 1 km walk through the woods to find Hermesvilla, but it is a nice and easy walk, there are signs to follow to the hunting lodge. Also Viennese like the place, families come here with children to relax and enjoy fresh air. The building is open for visitors, don't miss to see the awesome interiors and have a good look around the beautiful garden! There is also a nice café on the terrace of Hermesvilla, where I enjoyed sitting and sipping a cold drink at the end of my visit which was on a hot day.

Hermesvilla is a nice palace in a nice park, located at some 13 km west of central Vienna. I think it makes little sense to be a tourist in Vienna for a couple of days and use public transportation to come to see this villa as, although interesting, it cannot rival with Vienna's other museums. We were housed near the park hosting the villa and had a car, therefore decided to visit it. Google Maps found for us two gates to enter the park, and each gate was at some 1 km away of the villa. Be prepared to walk, as the cars are not allowed inside the park. The path through the forest is pleasant but can be tiring as you have to climb a hill and it can be hot weather. There is no fee to enter the park, but you have to pay 7 euros to visit the villa. Although the villa's exterior is pretty and attractive, the interior is a little grim, dark and dazed, and I can understand why Sissi was not happy there. The garden is nice; there is a cafe-restaurant at the groud floor of the villa.

This palace is small but very pretty from the outside. There are no English information inside the palace and minimal furniture and furnishings. They do let you take photos inside for free though. It costs 7 euros to enter. The palace has so few reviews on tripadvisor as I guess it is very hard to find via public transport for a foreigners as there are no signs so I will provide detailed descriptions on how to get there here. How to get to Hermesvilla Palace via public transport: (1) take U4 train in direction of Hutteldorf to station Ober St Veit (not Unter st veit the previous stop) (2) take bus 54A bus (bus stop is right outside the train station) in direction of Stock Im Weg and get off at stop called Ghenlengasse. There are no signs pointing to the palace so unless you have instructions on how to get there you will be lost. (3) walk about 50 metres straight ahead and you will come to a road path leading up the hill. There is a church sign on the road path. Go up this path. Watch out for cars as there is no footpath just car road. Walk for about 10 minutes along this path until you get to Lanzier Tiergarten gates. You will pass by a convent attached to the church on your left. There are nuns at this convent (I know this as I rang the door bell asking for instructions and a very friendly nun helped me out). (4) Enter the Lanzier Tiergarten gates, you have to open the door to get in and you will see a sign saying No Dogs and No Bicycles allowed. Once you have entered the gates take the LEFT path. From this point on you will be walking through the woods. (5) Walk for another 5 minutes and you will come to a crossroads. This will be the first sign you see pointing to Hermesvilla palace. Take the RIGHT path as that is where the sign points to. Walk another 5 minutes and you will see another crossroads and another sign pointing straight ahead for Hermesvilla Palace. Walk another 2 minutes and you will get to the back of the Palace. If you know where you are going the walk from the bus stop to the palace only takes 15-20 minutes easy walk, the problem is there are no signs pointing to the palace until you are almost there. There is a nice cafe in the palace too. There are lots of locals hiking in these woods so if you get lost you can always ask someone. The palace is surrounded by large vast gardens so if you like nature and serene surroundings and want to avoid large tourist crowds you will like this palace as there are very few tourists here. I was the only one inside the palace when I was visiting, so I practically had the palace to myself. It took me 10 minutes to see the inside of the castle as I had nothing to read in English, but I enjoyed the visit nevertheless and the location is within the normal Vienna transport zone so my travel card was covered eg I didn't have to buy extra transport tickets.

I'd already been here a few times, but brought my friend here so we could feed the deer in the park, which he said he enjoyed more than touring the actual castle/cottage. It's a bit of a trek from the center, but if you want to buy a few kilos of bread and have deer rush up to the fence to greet you and your bread, then it makes for a fun day out.
