Top sights in Vienna
It might mean “beautiful spring,” but Vienna’s Schoenbrunn Palace is a must-see in every season. Sip gluehwein at the Christmas market or wander the extensive gardens. This palace will show you why it's Austria’s most popular tourist destination.
Vienna will forever be the global capital of classical music. Catch one of the daily Mozart and Strauss concerts in the historic Orangery. Booking in advance is recommended.
Find a map of the grounds fountains, mazes, labyrinths and botanical gardens at the info counter. For 7 euro you can even ride the Panorama train on a 55 minute guided tour.
Of the park’s nine cafes, Cafe Gloriette is the best kept secret. Atop Gloriette hill, it offers a breathtaking view of the palace and its grounds, not to mention coffee and cake.
Take a walk through imperial history -- a guided audio tour is included with your ticket. The residential and ceremonial rooms seem to go on forever, each more grand than the next.
The Schoenbrunn zoo is the oldest zoo in the world and has won the title of Europe’s Best three times.
It is, after all, Austria’s most-visited site. Schoenbrunn Palace is off the U4 Schoenbrunn stop, about a fifteen minute metro ride from the center of Vienna. Opening times for the gardens vary by season, but try to arrive around 8:30 when the palace opens daily. You will thank yourself when you see the crowd at noon.
Avoid paying an entrance fee for each garden and the palace separately, and opt for a combination pass instead. The packages range from the Classic Pass to more luxurious packages like Sisi’s Treasures, which includes a three course meal and concert in the Orangery.

What people are saying about Schonbrunn Palace
We deliberately booked the last show. The facilitator was charming ... perfect personality for his job ... and the end result was a little slice of heaven! Well worth it.
We bought two day ticket. Did all the routes including free night tour and free guided walk around the city. All staff very knowledgeable and helpful A MUST FOR FIRST TIME VISITOR TO THIS BEAUTIFUL CLEAN CITY
Well organised, with free pick up from hotel, efficiently run and with very informative tour of both the city and the palace - a really good way to familiarise yourself with the layout of the city - the strudel and melange package in the Schoenbrunn Palace cafe is also an ideal way to fill the time after the palace tour
Great atmosphere, the "baker" a young girl of 15 years of age did a superlative presentation.
We really enjoyed ourselves. Our only unresolved challenge was to find an ATM that would accept Interact. We should have asked Vienna Info.
