Things to see and do in the Schönbrunn Palace

There are countless wonderful things to see and do in the Schönbrunn Palace, in addition to touring through the gorgeous rooms and gardens. Your tour would be incomplete without visiting the Gloriette, an impressive structure with an equally splendid view of Vienna, and delectable pastries.

You won’t want to miss the Children’s Museum, to see what life was like for children during the Austrian Empire. You should most certainly check out the Schönbrunn Zoo, the oldest zoo in the world, home to over 500 animal species. A truly remarkable way to explore the carriages and clothing of the Hapsburgs is to take a trip to the Imperial Carriage Museum. And you should for sure head over to the Apple Strudel Show to watch a professional pastry chef craft this divine dessert and provide the recipe for onlookers to give it a try as well. This is just the tip of the iceberg for what to do at Schonbrunn Palace.
