Visiting Sch�nbrunn

Sch�nbrunn Palace is one of Vienna's most popular attractions, receiving some 1.3 million visitors a year. Millions of other people--Viennese as well as tourists--explore the surrounding gardens and Sch�nbrunn's other attractions, which include a zoo (see below), the Palmenhaus (Palm House), a coach museum, cafés, restaurants, classical-music concerts in the Orangerie, a theatre, catered events, and the inevitable gift shop.

When buying tickets, choose the Grand Tour (1� hours) if you want to see the all 40 State Rooms. The quicker "Imperial Tour" is cheaper but includes only 22 rooms. A "Sisi Ticket" includes the Grand Tour, several Hofburg tours, and the Imperial Furniture Collection. (The Sisi Ticket is valid for a year, so you don't have to do everything the same day.) For more information, see the Sch�nbrunn Palace Web site below.

To reach Sch�nbrunn, take the U4 subway line to Sch�nbrunn (for the palace tour) or Hietzing (for the zoo).
