    Really beautiful palace, gem of austrian baroque architecture, accompanied with amazing gardens for long promenades. Good news: free admission to gardens.

    We took the grand tour for 16.40 € / adult with an audio guide that was very helpful. The palace is magnificent and the garden is perfect as well but better to comeback on summer to enjoy it most.

    it is huge. if you wanna see the whole thing , be ready to spend more than 3 hours.it is really amazing and you should walk until the peak where the big pillars are which is called Gloriette..

    The tour was ok, but the palace grounds are top notch and free! Fantastic views and gardens. Be sure to go all the way to the pavilion/restaurant! They also had a great Christmas market

    Absolutely amazing, even though they don't allow pictures inside. Spend a good half a day here. Do the Grand Tour to immerse yourself truly into the history of the dynasty and this palace.

    Well, the place is gorgeous. It is in a high demand and definitely worth to see. The park is beautiful too so make sure you buy the extended tickets with the park included.

    It's nice and all...but there really needs to be seating, in the shade, for people who don't want to use the cafe to sit and eat/drink while they wait for their tours to start. It's very inhospitable.

    A must see for everyone! We bought the 'grand tour' ticket (online!) and could see the palace, gardens, maze, gloriette... very nice! Only 15 mins with car from inner stad.

    One word: HUGE! Go back in time and feel the breath of Sisi in this venue. You can take several tours, I recommend to take the Grand Tour! The gardens are free to visit and offers a spectacular sight

    Beautiful & rich palace. Long que for the tickets. Buy ticket to see all 40 rooms. No need to buy one for gardens. Most part of gardens is public & free to visit.

    Take the grand tour to cover the most important parts of this palace in one hour and use the audio guide to help take you through the history of the rooms!

    This is one of Vienna's most important monuments. A place for monarchs, this huge area is home to amazing gardens and sculptures that are sure to delight all visitors. Don't miss the French Garden.

    Emperor Matthias, discovered a spring while hunting here and he said 'So ein schöner Brunnen' (what a beautiful spring), that led to Schönbrunn a magnificent palace surrounded by beautiful gardens !!

    Words can't describe this. Definitely on the top of the list of places you absolutely have to visit in Vienna. Also, the royal family's internal issues is the focus of the guided tour for some reason.

    Florian LecoqApril 15, 2016
    This place is really beautiful! Nice place to walk and to enjoy the sun! I would recommend to just take the full palace ticket because the park is free and the other tickets doesn't worth it...

    Beautiful place, definitely a must for anyone visiting Vienna. Worth seeing all rooms and I recommend getting the Sisi package. Good historic complement for who is going to or have visited Versailles

    It has very huge garden and also giant maze. I think also it has the biggest zoo in its garden. You can climb the top of the garden and see all of the city view. Prenses Sisi had lived here.

    Beautiful Palace, amazing garden, little train service was useful to go to Palm House, Zoo and Gloriette for amazing views. Also sat and relaxed on the grass outside the palace which was awesome.

    Here's how to do it: get a Grand Tour ticket from a ticket machine, bypassing the queue. Get an audio guide on your way in, and then head to the gardens behind the palace afterwards. Enjoy!

    Best place ever if you're visiting Vienna! Best ticket choice? Classic Pass Plus - or, if you go for the cheapest one, be sure to visit the Gloriette! It will take your breath away.

    With Golden Pass you might not be able to make it in one day - you don't need to rush-you can finish tomorrow. You can visit each sight only one time, but thought out a year.Take your time in the zoo!
  • Illia P.
    Illia PolosukhinJune 27, 2013
    If you forgot to buy your ticket online and want to get Golden Pass (and you should - it's awesome and worth it) - you can buy it without queue in Imperial Carriage Museum or in the Zoo.

    This palace is massive and absolutely beautiful. The Gloriette, while quite a hike from the main grounds, has views of Vienna that make it extremely worthwhile. I will definitely visit next time!

    Great place!! Walk in the gardens an go to the zoo!! The winter ticket costs 32 euros and includes everything inside palace! Go to the strudel-show and try a free sample!!

    Wonderfull and huge place!! As beautifull as Versalhes... A "must see" in Vienna. If you have a sunny day, consider a visit to the huge zoo in the same complex for a perfect "one day" visit.

    You really should pay this place a visit and take pics. just walk through the palace, the gardens and even visit the zoo for the pandas.

    Don't buy the ticket for the Gloriette and the private garden! You can walk to the Gloriette and have pratically the same view! Also it's not allowed to walk inside the private garden anyways :/

    The gardens are enough to keep you busy for the day. The mazes, the tropical gardens and the Gloriette are worth a visit and the cafe is good for lunch (if you want cake).

    The Sisi ticket is great: gives you an expedited line & access to more museums in town. Group tours & tour guides can be loud & distracting: use the excellent audio guides instead.
  • Stephen .
    Beautiful Palace & gardens! Can get busy on weekends with 2hr waiting times to get into the palace! The horse drawn carriage ride is very pleasant too.

    The perfect art of sclupture and green. It has a huge garden with a symetry. If you go there after the zoo, you won' have enough time and power to wander around.

    Buy your tickets for the Palace online before you go there to avoid queueing and waiting at the ticket desk and at the entry to the exhibition area!

    The Imperial Tour might nit be worth it. Take the Grand Tour paying a little more and having a much longer visit. Either way, a must for every Vienna visitor.

    The gardens are beautiful and free, there was a Christmas market out front in November that was very charming, the palace itself is beautiful plus it has free wifi!

    Amazing palace, great visit. They make you pay 50c at the enrry to access the toilets, but just buy a ticket and enter the palace for 'free' toilets.

    Impressive. This castle has never been ruined so you get to see the original decorations, paintings and furniture. They sell stamps in the souvenir shop on your way out.

    This Rococo-style residence where the Hapsburg rulers used to vacation is a great place to visit in the summer. The best part is the Kronprinzgarten, with rare citrus fruit trees that smell heavenly.

    The most beautiful place in the whole Vienna !!! Congratulations. Dont go to Belvedere after a visit on this palace because this is excellent and Belvedere will be disappointing

    Get one of the combination passes. Going up to the roof of the Gloriette is fun but not a must. The views from the bottom are still quite good.

    Very beautiful and also very crowded but just take you time and stand aside to let the crowd pass through while you indulge the beauty

    Along with all museums in Vienna, Schönbrunn also needs a lot of time for you to spend in order to get to know it better, you'll probably need to devote one day to this place

    A great place to visit during your trip in Vienna. However, just be careful with the pickpockets. This happened to me, secure your bag, wallet, phone, etc.
