Know More about this tour

The gardens of Vienna's Schönbrunn 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 Schönbrunn 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 Schönbrunn 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 Schönbrunn 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 Schönbrunn Zoo (entrance fee applies).
The train runs daily, and you’re 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.

  • This was well worth it as we had been mucked around with our tickets so were somewhat time poor. We managed to catch the train up to the Gloriette but mistakenly went to the stop where we were dropped off to get the train back to the Palace. Unfortunately we discovered we should have been elsewhere so missed the train. They weren't as frequent as I would have expected in the middle of summer. We ended up walking back down to the Palace as our time to tour the Palace was fast approaching. The walk down wasn't too bad but it was very hot the day we were there so we were feeling a bit overheated by the time we got to the Palace.

  • Absolutely delightful! Ideal way to see round the extensive grounds before doing the palace. Allow plenty of time as there are several interesting stopping-off points en route.
    When visiting the Palm houses don't get the train to the Zoo,it's just next door! We felt rather silly on our one-stop leg of the journey!
    The train stops for ten minutes up at the Gloriette, which is enough time to look round, but as there is also a restuarant there, lunch is an option.
    Buy your tickets on line well in advance as they are cheaper!

  • Schonbrunn is huge...too much to do all on foot...I put in 7 miles of walking. The Mini-Train was a great overall introduction that helped me decide where I wanted to invest my time. August is heavy visitation so it wasn't always possible to get on a train at intermediate stops if no one got off first but the trains run at frequent intervals.

  • I was not impressed with the gardens. Really there are no actual gardens that you see from this train. The train takes you around the grounds of the palace but everything else costs extra to see. I did not think this was a good value. Also there was no reason to buy tickets in advance at a more expensive price from viator then buying them directly on the train.

  • Beautiful gardens! We took the metro to get there, got off at Metro Hietzing. The mini-train was easy to pick up at the entrance and I was glad I booked it in advance so I just showed my printout and enjoy the ride.

  • not great

  • Not what we expected. We expected to tour through the gardens, all we did was drive on a perimeter road, not seeing much. Very disappointed.

  • We couldn't find this train at all. There is another one which takes inside tour of the zoo but not this one. It also ends very early, considering the time you spend in here.

  • It was a lovely experience and the gardens are amazing!

  • Could not uterine this fascility
