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.

Watch out we went there at 3:15 with the big tour in mind. we couldn't cause the musuem closes at 5:30 and the tour is about 3 hours. We ended up doing the palace only and the gardens. Not to be missed.

The summer palace area reminded us a bit of Versaille. Outside of the downtown core, the Palace is easily accessible by public transit - the subway was efficient and clean. We enjoyed the tour of the Imperial Apartments and the chance to see how opulent the life style was of the Hapsburgs. The Empress Maria Theresa is most closely associated with this royal residence although the last Emporer, Karl 1, renounced the throne here in 1918. The gardens are magnificent and a wonderful place for a stroll on a good day. It sounds a bit strange but go to the strudel making demonstration in the old royal kitchens. For a few Euros you can see how to make the fabulous Vienesse strudel and the sample they give you is worth the price by itself.

Beautiful palace with stunning interiors.
Audioguided tour of very high quality.
Two different lengths adapted to families whose children can't bear walking around for than a half hour.
Plenty of different things to do as well, such as the Maze, the Labyrinths, etc.
Highly recommended!

I give 4 stars just because the place is so crowded. Schonbrunn was a summer residence for imperial family. The palace is beautiful and now also a museum which contained many items, paintings related to the imperial family. Inside the garden,do short hiking and find 'Gloriette', which stand beautifully on the top of the garden. From it, you can see an amazing view of the Vienna City and the palace itself. While it was very beautiful, you might not get the full experience if the weather is not good.

What a beautiful palace with immaculate grounds and surroundings. The audoguide was excellent and was included in the entrance.
We did not enjoy having a times lot allocated to be the jostled by about 3 big tour groups at the same time. This often made it difficult to see the rooms!
