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.

Visited the imperial apartments, labyrinth and gloriette. Fun, educational and beautiful.

I would especially have liked to spend more time in the labyrinths.

Sissi… the “Elizabeth palace”. The palace was part of a guided tour that was included in the hotel package. It was worth seeing. Going with a guide will definitely add to the experience. A lot of grandeur in the different rooms that we saw while on the tour. Some amazing gardens as well. Unfortunately the organized tour didn’t allow us much time to explore the grounds, but it was a nice experience.

We really enjoyed our tour- the palace is very easy to get to and the tour includes 40 rooms plus the gardens. The tour guide was excellent and although very crowded the headsets made it very easy to hear her. The rooms are beautiful and give an interesting look into what life was like. The Gloriette on the hill was great at the end of the tour for a view of the palace and something to eat.

We were not able to buy the bundled tickets we wanted in advance (palace, maze, etc.) We arrived via the metro at 10:20. We spent 30 minutes in line. At which point we were sold a ticket with an entry for 30 minutes later - nothing said to us, we realized it after we had checked our backpack with sunscreen and snacks and were headed to the entrance. So outside we went - the sun was blazing so we had to go back for our bag. Advice buy tickets in advance if you can! Do not check your bag until your entry time, if you might want something from it. Our time came to tour the palace and it was very interesting, well laid out and we learned quite a bit about the Hapsburgs. Afterward we headed to the maze area. The kids loved the playground, games, and maze - we spent about 2 hours in the area. Then up to the Gloriette and down through the gardens. We had planned to visit the KinderMuseum but after 4 hours, we were ready to head home.
