Fun and games on a space of 7,000 square metres: in the Maze you make your way along fascinating, meandering paths to a viewing platform and two energising harmony stones activated by masters of feng shui.

Ausblick auf Schloss Schönbrunn von der Gloriette Aussichtsterrasse

Viewing Terrace on the Gloriette

The imposing Neo-Classical colonnade building is majestically enthroned on the crest of the hill in Schönbrunn Park. It’s well worth a visit, not only because of its magnificent architecture and rich sculptural adornment: the viewing terrace provides a unique panorama across the entire park grounds and far-reaching parts of Vienna. Alone the view of the art nouveau church Am Steinhof by Otto Wagner will linger in your mind as an unforgettable memory!

The Gloriette viewing terrace is not accessible barrier-free.

Crown Prince Garden & Orangery Garden

Among the most idyllic spots in Schönbrunn Palace are the Crown Prince Garden located at the palace’s east façade and the Orangery Garden sited in front of the Orangery building. The romantic pergolas entwined about with ivy and wild vine lend the Crown Prince Garden a uniquely tranquil and contemplative character. During the summer months it contains strikingly beautiful citrus bushes. In the Orangery Garden you can take a stroll through the history of European horticulture. You’ll be amazed at exotic plants such as olive trees, myrtle and bitter orange growing in the idyllic scenery of the Orangery!

The Crown Prince Garden is not accessible barrier-free.
