Schoenbrunn Palace

Schoenbrunn Palace Austria

Schoenbrunn Palace is one of Austria’s most visited sights and located just a short train journey from the center of Vienna. With an amazing 1,441 rooms and an expansive garden that includes a Zoo and Maze it was a great little side trip after having enjoyed several days sampling Vienna in the summer.

I could have spent all day just enjoying the summer sun and soaking up the atmosphere of the gardens. I just needed a few quiet beers and a big old picnic set to sit back and really enjoy just how amazing Schoenbrunn Palace really is.

    I was there around Christmastime! I’m sure you made it up the hill to that little cafe — I have a lovely memory of looking over the city as all the lights went on and catching a glimpse of the giant Christmas tree in the courtyard of the palace. Yes, it’s a super place and an absolute must in Vienna.

      I so checked out the cafe up that hill and what a walk it was with 30+ degree heat. Wish I’d been there at night to see what it was like looking back at the city.

    Unbelievable fantastic tourist spot to visit. I think Schoenbrunn Palace is something that everyone need to visit. I could imagine myself running through that huge garden. Where is the zoo located?

      Thanks Peter, its no comparison to that lens of yours but not half bad for an iphone I don’t think.

    Amazing shot! I remember that palace from when I was a kid. Unfortunately, back then I was bored to tears with it, considering I was forced to spend three months cooped up in a VW bus with my family, visiting one church/palace/castle/cathedral after another. Today, I would give anything to go on a tour like that.
