Duration
Approx. 50 minutes

Highlights

  • See 40 rooms (Grand Tour) or 22 rooms (imperial Tour), all decorated in the lush Baroque 19th century style
  • Peek into the life of the Habsburgs - by visiting rooms such as the Great Gallery, the Yellow Salon, the Chinese Cabinets and Franz's very modest office
  • Take a stroll through Schönbrunn's UNESCO World Heritage listed sculpted gardens - they've been a hot destination for generations of Viennese

Description

Peek behind the imperial curtain with a visit to Schönbrunn Palace, former home of the Habsburgs, and Austria's most popular tourist attraction. Choose from the Grand Tour - which takes you through 40 rooms and 300 years of history - or the Imperial Tour, which gives you access to the 22 rooms most closely associated with Sisi and Franz (great if you're short on time!). Both are skip-the-line and include an audio guide.

Schönbrunn Palace has over 1400 rooms, sprawling gardens yet was originally intended to be nothing more than the Habsburgs' hunting lodge - talk about expensive tastes!

This opulent window into the Baroque lives of one of Europe's most storied dynasties is one of Austria's most popular tourist attractions; the palace complex has more than four millions annual visitors. Choose from the Grand Tour or the shorter Imperial Tour - and explore the palace, before wandering the gardens.

Grand Tour

The Grand Tour takes you through 40 rooms and 300 years of Habsburg history. You’ll see how their tastes changed, developed, and evolved over the centuries as you visit the likes of the Great Gallery, the magnificent Hall of Ceremonies and the decadent Gobelin Salon, all with audio guide.

And it’s not just great state rooms that you’ll see – you’ll also get to see the private chambers of the long-serving Franz Joseph I and his wife Sisi (or to give her her official title, Elisabeth of Austria).

Imperial Tour

Rather than letting you loose in all 40 rooms that are open to the public, this Imperial Tour focuses on Emperor Franz Joseph I and his wife Empress Elisabeth (more commonly known as Sisi).

You'll get an audio guide and access to 22 beautiful state rooms closely associated with Sisi and her man. There's the luxurious splendor of the Great Gallery (an ideal setting for court functions), the Oriental charm of the Chinese Cabinets as well as the astonishingly modest style of decoration in Emperor Franz Joseph's private suite.

The Gardens

Outside, the lush gardens are as vast as a monarch's power. A UNESCO World Heritage site since 1996, they've been open to the Viennese public since 1779. With both the Grand Tour and Imperial Tour ticket you can experience the lush landscaping. Walk through the world’s largest gloriette (look it up!), explore the Roman ruins, or emulate countless Austrian schoolchildren over the years and get lost in the maze.

It is well organised and the queue going round it moved smoothly. The signage in the gardens could be better. It took us ages to find The Palm House and the food outlets.
