Schloss Schönbrunn

  Historical

Inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1996. It is the ultimate palace experience in Vienna, because the Habsburg summer palace can be found here. It is comparable in grandeur to Versailles and is definitely a must-see in Vienna. Its zoo is the oldest in the world, built for Maria Theresa's husband in 1752. The palace has seen its fair share of excitement over the years, including a meeting between John F. Kennedy and Nikita Khruschchev at the height of the cold war. The Palace Park offers a lot of attractions, such as the Privy Garden, a maze and labyrinth, and the top-of-the-hill Gloriette with its Panorama Terrace. There are two possible tours available, the Imperial Tour showing 22 rooms and the Grand Tour showing 40 rooms. Entrance includes audio or written guide. The shorter tour takes you into the west wing including the apartments of Emperor Franz Joseph and Empress Elisabeth (Sisi), as well as the imposing state rooms in the central wing. With the Grand Tour you can also visit the 18th-century rooms from the time of Maria Theresa.
