Schönbrunn Palace Tour
THE TOUR BEGINS
Map: Schönbrunn Palace Tour
Palace Gardens and Nearby Sights
Among Europe’s palaces, only Schönbrunn (Schloss Schönbrunn) rivals Versailles. This former summer residence of the Habsburgs is big, with 1,441 rooms. But don’t worry—only 40 rooms are shown to the public. Of the plethora of sights at the vast complex, the highlight is a tour of the palace’s Royal Apartments—the chandeliered rooms where the Habsburg nobles lived. You can also stroll the gardens, tour the Coach Museum, and visit a handful of lesser sights nearby.
Planning Your Time: Schönbrunn is sprawling and can be mobbed with tourists. Here’s how I’d plan my time for an efficient visit: First, see the Royal Apartments with the “Grand Tour” ticket, reserved in advance to avoid crowds (details below). After the Royal Apartments, wander the gardens, which are free. With more time and energy, pick-and-choose among the other sightseeing options and buy tickets as you go. Allow at least three hours (including transit time) for your excursion to Schönbrunn.
