4.6/5 based on 5,000+ reviews on the web
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.

  • In addition to all the beauty of the Palace, which is huge, what really captivated me was the greatness of this garden. We stopped at the top part of the garden and we get a time there enjoying that visual. I loved. If you enjoy running, is it worth taking the tennis over there, there were many people running around.
