"Schonbrunn Palace - The Hasburg's Summer Home" Schönbrunn Palace Tip by Mikebb
Schönbrunn Palace, Vienna: 296 reviews and 585 photos
This is a must see sight , a magnificant palace and garden which was the summer home of the Hofburg Emperors. You can do the tour yourself, just hire the commentary phones and walk from one point to the next. This Palace is an example of the lavish livestyle of the Hofburg rulers. There is an emphasis on Emperor Franz Joseph and his beautiful wife Sisi.
There is an assortment of entry fees depending upon how much you wish to view. We took the Sisi - Ticket which gave us a tour of most sections of the Palace and also entry to the Sisi Apartment in Vienna. We visited the Sisi Apartment the next day which we found more interesting as it was more personal than the Palace. You should allow yourself a minimum of 1.5 hours at each venue.
Videorecorders and cameras cannot be used inside the palace.
Address: the summer-residence of the emperor
Directions: Situated in the Hietzing district near the zoo. Easiest transport is on the metro to the Schonbrunn station (green line from Karlsplatz).
