The gardens of Vienna's Schnbrunn Palace are a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the city's greatest treasures. Covering a vast area, the beautiful Baroque landscapes are sprinkled with ornamental monuments, pools, mazes and fountains as well as other attractions such as Schnbrunn Zoo and the spectacular Gloriette monument.
With so much to see, the gardens can be overwhelming for even the most intrepid visitors. So remove the punishing legwork, and explore the site aboard a miniature, hop-on, hop-off panorama train that circumnavigates the grounds.
Entrance to the Schnbrunn Palace Gardens is free, so all you need do is enter via any of the main gates, and then, armed with your 1-day train ticket, hop aboard the mini-train outside the Schnbrunn Palace or the Gloriette to explore the sights at your own pace. Learn about the gardens from the onboard commentary and either remain on the train for an entire loop (roughly 50 minutes) or hop on and hop off at any of the nine stops to create your own sightseeing itinerary.
Give the steep walk up to the Gloriette a miss by riding up to the hilltop terrace, or jump off to see showstoppers such as the ornate Obelisk Fountain and Roman Ruin. You can also hop on and off to see the glass Palm House and visit Schnbrunn Zoo (entrance fee applies).
The train runs daily, and youre free to complete as many circuits as you wish with your 1-day ticket. Click the View additional info link to see a map of the train route.
