The gardens of Schonbrunn palace--Schonbrunner Gardens--are as lavish and intricate as the palace itself. Within the gardens, you'll find a zoo, botanical garden, orangery, palm house, and a maze. Considered an extension of the palace, the gardens are accordingly designed with Baroque principles in mind. Notice the symmetry of the flowerbeds and strips of colored stones, which are inspired by embroidery patterns. Get lost in the maze, which was replanted in 1998 and closely follows the original layout. Find your way to the center, where you'll reach the viewing platform.

  • 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!

  • Very beautiful place to spend some time with friends and family. A small hike to the cafe on hill which is so beautiful and the architecture of the cafe and interior is very antique and marvelous. Food is also nice you can have some wine beer too. Or sit outside on grass and have some relaxing time. There is a zoo also and toy train.
  • A wonderful park, very large and beautifully designed! You can easily spend a whole day exploring it, especially considering the cafes in & around the park and the number of themed greenhouses (these do charge an entrance fee). The park encompasses both the Schönbrunn zoo and the palace itself, both of which are worth a visit. Don't expect you'll be able to do the park, zoo, and palace all in one day, though!
