The Basics

Forty of the palace’s 1,441 rooms are open to the public, including the private apartments of Emperor Franz Joseph and Empress Elisabeth (Sisi), as well as the exquisite 18th-century rooms of Maria-Theresa—the only female ruler of the Habsburg dynasty. The vast palace gardens are also a must-see, with a spectacular palm house made from iron and glass, a hedge maze, and a labyrinth. Visit on a skip-the-line tour to beat the crowds and benefit from the knowledge of an expert guide, or opt for a private tour for a more personalized experience. For an evening of culture and music, attend a live concert in the Schönbrunn Palace Orangery and listen to famous works by Mozart and Strauss. Or, get an overview of the city and the palace on a Vienna city tour, stopping at other highlights such as the Vienna Opera House, the Danube River, and the Kunsthistorisches Museum.

Skip-the-Line Schonbrunn Palace Guided Tour and Vienna Historical City Tour
We did this tour on Monday. The guide on the coach was excellent in pointing out the interesting places along the route. The coach was very clean with a very good driver. The palace is a piece of art and it's gardens you can stay a whole day touring them. Well done to all.

Schönbrunn Palace Evening: Dinner and Concert
Very nice evening. The dinner venue was quite nice, but it had the feel of a modern eatery instead of the palatial dining I had hoped to experience. Tables were too close together, lights in the dining room were bright, and it was not very romantic. Service was good. Food was good.

Schönbrunn Palace Concert in Vienna
We were two couples who enjoyed very much this Wiener concert with music by Strauss and Mozart. The musicans, opera singers and dancers were all very professional. We are all very satisfied. We did not have dinner before the concert, but we got a glass of Sparkling wine. The only negative was the line in order to get the drink.

The guide was very good indeed and very interesting. We enjoyed the tour immensely as it gave us background before our visit to the Palace. The interior of the Palace was very impressive.

Schönbrunn Palace Audio-Guided Tour, Dinner and 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.

Smart way to visit the palace

Skip-the-Line Schonbrunn Palace Guided Tour and Vienna Historical City Tour
This is the best way to enjoy the Schönnberg Palace. Even in February, there were lines and crowds. Skip the line is worth every cent. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and funny. The bus tour was a good way to get one’s bearings on a first-time visit to Vienna.

Small-Group Schönbrunn Palace Half-Day Tour with a Historian Guide
There's absolutely no way we could have gotten anywhere near as great of an experience without Katerina. She took us around for three hours and explained the rooms and histories to us, including some random cool things like the mustach holder applied during sleep. I really cannot recommend this tour enough. Our tour guide also took some fantastic pictures for us, which was lovely

When to Get There

The busiest time to visit Schönbrunn Palace is during the summer months of July and August, when it’s best to visit early or purchase a skip-the-line ticket to avoid crowds. Spring and fall bring mild weather and fewer crowds.

The Schönbrunn Palace Orangery

For lovers of music and culture, an evening visit to Schönbrunn Palace is a must. The Schönbrunn Palace Orchestra performs concerts in the fully renovated Palace Orangery, where Mozart himself often played. The orchestra is accompanied by ballet dancers and opera singers, and they perform various works from Mozart and Strauss.
