Schonbrunn Palace

Local nameSchloss Schönbrunn
LocationVienna, Austria

Nowhere in Vienna is its imperial history more palpable than in the Schönbrunn Palace. Originally a residence of the Habsburg family, the palace was opened to the public in the 20th century. Nowadays, it has become one of the most popular attractions of the city. The entire complex, along with the surrounding gardens, has been a part of the UNESCO World Heritage since 1996.

It is said that with this palace, the Habsburg ruler Maria Theresa wished to surpass the French Versailles. Works started in 1743, based on the designs by Nicholas Pacassi. Finished in just 6 years, the palace has over 1400 rooms, with some 200 kitchens. 45 of those, mostly decorated in rococo style, can be entered today.

Due to the popularity of the palace, be ready for long queues to get tickets, as well as to enter the palace. If you prefer a crowd-free visit, come as early in the morning as you can. Also note, that it is forbidden to take photographs in the palace.
