In such an historical city as Vienna, the use of the description “magnificent” becomes common. But when visiting the Schonbrunn Palace (Schloss Schonbrunn), this description understates its beauty and significance. This is a must-do visit, the architecture of this enormous, long, and symmetrical palace, will astound you, and as you tour the 40 rooms, each with their own story, you will be drawn into the power and opulence of three centuries. Outside, meander through the gardens and explore the maze. It can be very busy so consider advance ticket purchases, and there are a range of tour options.
