Schonbrunner Gardens, Vienna

4.7
#2 of 296 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.

    The beautiful Palace with a huge garden. Due to the limited budget we visited only the garden of Gloriett. Strolling through the alleys in the garden and the entrance to the Gloriett have passed us 3 hours! Szacowaliśmy time for about an hour, but to explore most of the garden and located there fountains need it a lot more. The Palace from the outside and gardens beautiful. Huge area beautifully maintained. The locals come to the garden to read, lie back and run. And to be honest you can give them this space envy. A must visit.

    Large manicured, imperiali, amplissimi, it takes many hours to visit them right, try to also refer to the zoo that is really unique and friendly animals!

    The Park during the summer is wonderful. Requires a walk that provides a vision of Schonbrunn unforgettable. In the park there are the squirrels that come close to eating

Where to stay in Vienna

As a former imperial capital, Vienna is full of lavish hotels reminiscent of the city’s royal past. If you’re traveling on a budget, it’s not hard to find hotels for a more affordable price. Consider staying in the Innere Stadt, or First District, if you only have a short time in town, as you’ll be within easy walking distance to many of the city’s main tourist attractions. Outside of the central core, Leopoldstadt, or Second District, lines the Danube and offers peaceful walks through tree-lined paths. For shopaholics, Mariahilf, or Sixth District, is a central neighborhood with busy shopping streets and lively markets.
