An hour’s drive outside Vienna, Palace Schloss Hof is another of Vienna’s stunning 18th century imperial palaces. The former country residence of the Habsburgs, it was once owned by Prince Eugene of Savoy, who was well known for his lavish tastes and eccentric décor.
The palace and grounds cover 120 acres and house a wonderful estate of terraces, orangeries and manicured baroque gardens for visitors to enjoy. There’s also a petting zoo and farm.
Visitors can also take a trip out to Schloss Niederweiden, the imperial 18th century hunting lodge which was used to host lavish private parties, only a short drive from Schloss Hof. Set back in Baroque gardens, Schloss Niederweiden is a French style palace considered country and cultured in equal measures. Visitors can enjoy this imperial palace for free with the Vienna PASS and tour the exquisite rooms Empress Maria Theresa furnished, typical of chinoiserie style fashionable at the time.
Today you can take a tour of the chambers and halls from the baroque ball rooms to the rustic open kitchens, and learn about this enchanting small palace and the role it played in the imperial family throughout the 18th and 19th century.
