Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The size of the gardens is huge.

They are truly vast.

The zoo is located in the gardens of the palace.

It is a 20-minute walk to get to the other end of the gardens, but the view back is well worth it.

A must do

This was our second visit to Schönbrunn Palace. We visited in the summer of 2014 and spent a lot of time in these gardens and enjoying the fountains (Neptunbrunnen). On this trip our focus was primarily on the Christmas Markets but we did go out back for a quick glimpse of the gardens.

Great to be able to stroll around these beautifully kept gardens without buying a ticket. The network of paths is well maintained and stretch up hill to the Gloriette which offers great views back to the Palace. Good access via Vienna's superb tram and bus network.

The palace is crazy, but.... This is what you want to check out. Lots of walking because it's a massive chunk of land. Worth it for certain!

If you don’t want to pay the high entry price for the palace you can enjoy the beautifully landscaped gardens and soak up the atmosphere of 18th century Vienna. It is quite a hike through the manicured flower beds to the huge water fountains, around the woods and trails, and then up to the Gloriette (and cafe) for a stunning view of the Viennese skyline.

Huge, sprawling gardens surrounding the Schonbrunn Palace. Unfortunately, not a lot to see in the winter time. When we visited, it was cold, damp and windy, so we had a quick look at some of the sculptures and statues, then retreated. It is undoubtedly spectacular in spring and summer with flowers in bloom.

You could spend a lot of time walking the gardens, or enjoying a training run. We walked up to the Gloriette and down. This time of year is not extraordinary, but garden would be lovely in the late spring to October.

We did the outdoor walk of the gardens which although impressive with statues, fountains and obelisk, it must look completely different in summer with plants in full bloom

After the Schonbrun Palace Tour we visited the gardens located at the rear.

Entry is free however attractions such as Privy Garden, the Orangery Garden , Maze Zoo, Palm House and the Desert House require tickets.

The gardens are manicured and spectacular with water features and lots of seating areas for you to relax and enjoy the view.

These gardens extend in virtually every direction and are absolutely huge! Save plenty of time (an hour or more minimum) to walk through these majestic and very well kept gardens!
