Schönbrunn Palace FAQs

Knowing what ticket to buy for Schönbrunn Palace can be overwhelming. The grounds of Schönbrunn Palace encompass a sprawling 400 acres, including stately gardens and a zoo. There's no shortage of things to see without even mentioning the palace itself, or the concerts that take place there!

If you’re visiting with the family, hopping on the Schönbrunn Panoramabahn is a fun way for the kids to travel around the grounds without their little legs getting tired. Tiergarten Schönbrunn, or Vienna Zoo, will keep the family entertained if you just want a quick peek at Schönbrunn Palace’s exterior.

If you want to explore the palace and gardens, and learn some history while you’re at it – then a Schönbrunn Palace ticket with a guided tour and skip the line entry is ideal.

If you’re feeling indulgent or looking for something truly special, don’t miss out on tickets for an evening dinner and concert inside the romantic Orangery.

Schönbrunn Park is free to enter, however, the palace is not. The park opens its gates 6:30 am and closing times vary depending on the season. Keep in mind that certain areas in the park require admission tickets, including the Privy Garden, the Orangery Garden and the Maze.

As mentioned, the palace itself isn’t free to enter, but you can download a free audio guide from Schönbrunn Palace’s official website.

The length of your visit depends on how much you want to do during your time there. With all the gardens and goodies to explore in Schönbrunn Park, including the zoo, you could easily while away an entire day.

If you get Schönbrunn Palace tickets with a guided tour, then it should take you around 90-minutes. But, with so much to see within the grounds, including famous architecture you’ll definitely want to factor in more time for your visit.

This was a wonderful holiday experience. The online directions were a little confusing but the people at the ticket office were helpful and the setting for the concert and Christmas market was incredible.

Wonderful concert, music and singing; not to mentipn the location. Worth the money. The market was also wonderful - most stands with hand-made items, not the made in China replicas.

About: Schönbrunn Palace

Initially envisioned as a hunting lodge for the Habsburgs, Emperor Leopold I commissioned the construction of Schönbrunn Palace at the end of the 17th century. In the middle of the 18th century, it was converted into a residence for Maria Theresa, the only female Habsburg ruler. Since then, it has played host to the leading statespeople of Europe. 44 of its 1,441 rooms are on display to the public, and it's the most-visited attraction in Vienna.

Its gardens have been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1996 and have been open to the Viennese public since 1779.
