The basics

Spanning almost 300 acres (more than one square kilometer), the Schlosspark Schönbrunn is considered one of the most beautiful gardens in Europe. The original baroque-style layout, along with the additions made during the last decade of Queen Maria Theresa’s life, have more or less been retained.

Highlights of the grounds include the ornate Obelisk Fountain, Gloriette, Privy Garden, Orangery Garden, and Desert House. Take in the gardens as part of a guided or independent tour of the Schönbrunn Palace or a larger Vienna city tour. You can visit on foot or purchase a ticket for the mini-train to take in the major landmarks without getting footsore.

Small-Group Schönbrunn Palace Half-Day Tour with a Historian Guide
Ilse was an awesome, knowledgeable tour guide! The 3 of us had a wonderful time with her guiding us through the Schönbrunn Palace & the grounds. We were some of the only people at Schönbrunn due to the weather mid-January & covid lockdown, so we got an amazing, in depth, personalized tour of both the grounds & all the rooms - with literally no crowds. We would definitely recommend this tour & Ilse in particular - she was so lovely & informative & enthusiastic about her city!

Small-Group Schönbrunn Palace Half-Day Tour with a Historian Guide
What a great way to visit the Palace. Katarina was an absolute delight; informative, engaging and helped make the place come to life with her presentation. I've been to other places and always wondered what it would be like to have your own guide. After spending time with Katarina, I now know it's the only way to go.

Small-Group Schönbrunn Palace Half-Day Tour with a Historian Guide
Iles was fantastic! It was just my wife and I on the tour as it is still early season and tourism numbers are increasing. Iles was incredibly knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. She ensured that we had a generous amount of time to see each room of the palace. We will recommend that our friends request Iles for the Schönbrunn Palace tour.

Exclusive Evening at Schönbrunn Palace: After-Hours Audiotour, Dinner, Concert
A fabulous opulent palace well worth seeing. Audio tour was informative, but my headset didn't work and had to share my husbands. Dinner in the restaurant was lovely, but set menu and no choices. Bit of a faf collecting tickets - why they can't be all in one place instead of spread out so much is maddening and a long walk in between each.

Things to know before you go

  • Kids have ample space to explore the grounds, in addition to a marionette theater and zoo to visit nearby.
