Schonbrunner Gardens, Vienna

4.7
#2 of 572 in Parks in Austria
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.

  • Very nice gardens near the Schönbrunn Palace, especially when the weather is nice. I would highly recommend a walk there after the visit to the Schönbrunn Palace.  more »
  • Unfortunately the day of the visit, it was very cold and snowy, the grounds are beautiful especially with the snow effect. Too bad not having them could enjoy, too windy and cold.

  • Here for the first time, I say that you should try at least once in their lives turn for this park. Although not in bloom, deserves for the beautiful walks, avenues, fountains, and the view from the top.
