Owner description: The Cultural World Heritage Site of Schönbrunn Palace is Austria's most frequently visited tourist attraction. In the palace the residential and state rooms with their original furnishings and decorations convey an authentic impression of the imperial lifestyle. The park and gardens surrounding the palace make Schönbrunn in a unique synthesis of Baroque art as well as providing a convenient and highly popular recreational area for Vienna's population.

I like the history and continuity of the families that lived there. Most furnishings were exactly as left by family.
not as grand as many palaces in Europe. Gardens are lovely, every tree and bush pruned to within an inch of their lives.
We took a private horse and carriage ride through gardens which was nice, but €65 for 25 minutes!! There is a cheaper version that carries more people.
No photos allowed in palace. I really am tired of this restriction. Without flashes, no harm can be done. A trip to Europe for us is one in a lifetime and we would like to look back on photo memories.

This amazing palace will remain in my memory for a long time to come. What a gilded cage it was for the inhabitants.

The salad I had was very fresh and there was plenty of it. Not overpriced either. My husband had a sausage meal. And it was very tasty too. The service was great.

It was really a cold day, so we headed out to the palace. It was well worth it. We have seen several palaces on our trip, but this one was one of the best. The rooms are all restored to maintain the original look and feel of the palace. The audio guide was really informative, but not over the top. As per usual, there were tour groups visiting, but once you dodge them the place is not too crowded. The gardens are simply stunning too. Well worth visiting.

We enjoyed the tour of the palace, but were enthralled with the grounds. Plan to spend a full day so you can take advantage of all there is to see.
