One of the most beautiful places we visited in Vienna, Austria last summer, was the Schönbrunn Palace. It’s a former imperial summer residence and now one of the major attractions in Vienna. This is a must visit for attraction, palace and sightseeing lovers.
We got off at the Schönbrunn tube station, and almost everyone that got off at this stop was for the palace. We just followed everyone else, and walked about 5mins to the palace.
We went on an extremely sunny day with a beautiful blue sky and soft white clouds. This made the scenery even more stunning.
Photos were not allowed inside the palace but I wish I could have taken a few shots. It was absolutely amazing and grand inside. They gave us little audio handsets that we used to listen to for information on each of the rooms inside the palace. It took us around 1hr 30mins to tour around the rooms and listen to each of the rooms’ audio.

We purchased our tickets at the door, but you can buy them online if you want to skip the queues. We went for the classic ticket (Adult 21€) which include access to all the parts of the palace and garden.
