The gardens must be stunning in Spring and Summer, but still worth a visit in Winter. A good walk to the top, requires some effort, but the view is worth it. The Gloriette cafe is worth queueing for.

Perhaps not quite as many fountains but beautiful gardens, much more easily accessible and free! Absolutely delightful to wander around in, incredible views of the city. We ended up spending half a day here.

This is a visit for spring summer and autumn to get the full effect on how impressive the gardens and grounds are. A sleeting, bitterly cold day in December requires some imagination to appreciate the true splendour.

This is officially Austria's favourite tourist attraction. This might be more of an indictment on Austria's tourist industry but the Gardens and the Palace itself are very well oiled and beautiful to see. It is - unsurprisingly - not cheap to visit but if you...More

We visited Schonbrunne gardens and palace. Due to long queues we were not able to see the rooms but had to be content with exploring the gardens. The flowers were in full bloom and it was a treat to the eyes. Even though there were...More

While we had mixed feelings about the "grand tour" of Schönbrunn, but we absolutely loved the gardens and grounds. The setting is beautiful and worth exploring. Even on a cold December day with some snow on the ground, we loved walking around the gardens. Tips:...More

Beautiful for a stroll in nice weather (we went on a sunny but cold December day). Definitely recommend when the weather is nice.

What an amazing garden. There are lots of pathways, structured walks and beautiful trees laid out in patterns. I came during the winter and missed the blossoming if the flowers but all the evergreens played out in all greens possible. Totally beautiful.

Not sure if there are still blooms in October, but even in May, when we were there, not too many can be seen. The greenery and beautiful trees are still worth a visit, we think! Have a good visit!

Don't think you need a ticket for the places outside the palace. There is an entrance at the right side when you face the palace. Everyone just walks in... even locals go there to jog on a regular basis. Don't believe the... More
