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!

See the many different ticket options here, or many guided tours (including a wine tour!) here.

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.

Really great way to see all around Schonbrunn which I don't think you could cover on foot unless an athlete. True hop on hop off. Struggled to find the start/meet point. Accept the free earphones...

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.
