On the Grand Tour and the Imperial Tour you can feast your eyes on magificent ceremonial rooms and opulently appointed salons. After touring the palace we suggest you make time for a stroll through the gardens – the Baroque complex at Schönbrunn Palace includes beautiful parkland, the Palm House, Maze, Gloriette and the famous zoo.
