Lush Summer Residence

This 1,441-room palace near the outskirts of Vienna was the summer residence for the Habsburgs for hundreds of years. With its gorgeous baroque and rococo décor, some argue that it is much more inviting than the Hofburg Palace, but the two are certainly comparable in their grandeur and importance to the Habsburgs and to Austrian culture. As you can imagine, there is no shortage of things to tour at this site, including the Grand Apartments and the elaborate gardens surrounding the estate. Whether you take the standard tour or the extended one, you’ll get a deeper look into Habsburg life, particularly those during the years of Maria Theresa’s reign. She was responsible for establishing many of the attractions you see at the palace today, those which have made Schonbrunn one of the most significant must-see attractions in Vienna.
