Quite simply a must if you are in Vienna, its an easy journey on the subway. Visually it is a work of art on a massive scale, not to mention the Neptune fountain and monument on top of the hill. Too bad we didn't have...More

The palace is spectacular. We did the grand tour (40 rooms) with an audio guide and were definitely not disappointed. The only minus was that there were so many people that at some points we were stuck in queues between the rooms. As we visited...More

A must visit place when in Vienna - palace houses 1000+ rooms - a world record. But the interesting fact is that the garden area surrounding the palace makes it look dwarf! The garden is very nicely maintained - trees are trimmed to perfection -...More

We took the audio guided grand tour that takes around 50 minutes and costs 17.50. It’s free to walk round the gardens. The audio guide gives lots of good information both of the rooms and the family. The gardens are a real treat and I...More

Vienna’s 13th district has always been in the shadow
of Schönbrunn Palace and its gardens, but has
interesting hidden gems waiting to be discovered.
Allow half a day for the imposing Habsburg residence
and the gardens with Gloriette belvedere. Reserve the
other half to discover the secret charms of this posh
residential neighbourhood. Sneak out of the gardens at
Hietzinger Tor (Hietzing Gate) and head down

That is quite a long walk. It is very easy to use the public transportation services.
