Schonbrunner Gardens, Vienna

4.7
#1 of 701 in Parks in Austria
The gardens of Schonbrunn palace--Schonbrunner Gardens--are as lavish and intricate as the palace itself. Within the gardens, you'll find a zoo, botanical garden, orangery, palm house, and a maze. Considered an extension of the palace, the gardens are accordingly designed with Baroque principles in mind. Notice the symmetry of the flowerbeds and strips of colored stones, which are inspired by embroidery patterns. Get lost in the maze, which was replanted in 1998 and closely follows the original layout. Find your way to the center, where you'll reach the viewing platform.

  • We spent a couple of hours in the gardens with our son, who loved running around. There are plenty of areas to walk around in, and a lot to see!  more »
  • DON'T BUY TICKETS TO THE PALACE! Enjoy your stroll around this amazing garden and skip the crowds/fees inside.  more »
