The old Imperial family’s summer residence, the Schönbrunn Palace is one of Vienna’s most popular attractions. Steeped in history and culture, it plays an important part in Vienna’s past and visitors can enjoy a tour through the old palace, through the Imperial apartments and out into the landscaped gardens, maze and Gloriette.

Hofburg Palace

The main imperial palace and winter residence of the Habsburgs, Hofburg Palace is a must-see when you’re in Vienna.
