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.

A little pricey, but you can opt for a cheaper tour; gardens are "included". Audioguide super concise and puts the history in context. It's a real business: they shuffle you through quickly, effeciently and effectively (for the visitor). Loved it.

Morning is crowded with large groups, the place is huge and there is a lot to see besides the palace rooms which are impressively decorated. It requires a whole day if you want to visit the zoo, the maze garden, swimming pool and other parts of the ground complex-long distances between places. Best apple streudel at the cafe next to the zoo, also other good meal selections for lunch.

Short trip via underground to the summer palace. The grounds make the trip worthwhile. The tour of the apartments duplicated much of what we saw at the Hofbug tour.

We visited the Palace through a bus tour and there was not sufficient time to experience all there is. You can rent audio tours in numerous languages. The Palace is stunning and filled with history. The gardens need at least two hours to explore - even if you don't like flowers. It was quite busy but ticket lines moved fast.

We bought the combined ticket with the Sissi's appartment that we visited the previous day and I enjoyed this visit even more. Great to have a walk around the lovely gardens and then go inside to visit the palace. There is a zoo in the garden (not included in the visit) but maybe for parents with children is good so they can join something fun for the kids with the Palace visit.
