Schonbrunner Gardens, Vienna
(4.6/5 based on 5,500+ 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.

  • After a visit of the Castle or the visit to the wonderful Zoo, the crowning is a relaxing walk in the magnificent garden
    View original
  • After a 1st tourist - bus trip tour, you should take min. 1/2 day time for 1 a free guided tour of the Castle + 1 walk to the Gloriette - where to "relax in a great coffee house in food & drink"! Renovated for the oldest & state + extended Zoo of the world man - needs especially with children & young people 3-4 h. 'Fine tip' (= lovers) wandering through the huge Castle Park, visit the "Roman excavations", at that time largest Palm House of the world, the wagon and - when appropriate before posting) one evening, a performance in the cozy & small baroque castle theatre!

  • Not only the Castle but the most manicured gardens I've known climb up to the roundabout, it is worthwhile to see a panoramic view of the place. It is a step into the glorious past of Austria. Don't forget to do this ride. It is worth it.
