All year long
Perfect beauty does exist, as illustrated by the magnificent Schönbrunn Palace. In the eighteenth century, Maria Theresa wished to transform the Baroque style hunting lodge designed by Fischer von Erlach into a Rococo building, commissioning Nicolas Pacassi, Austrian court architect, to do this. The Schönbrunn Palace became the official summer residence of the Austrian royal family, bearing witness to the daily life of the Habsburgs, from Maria Theresa to Emperor Franz Joseph.
During your visit, two options are open to you. The Imperial Tour takes you through the apartments of the imperial couple Franz Joseph and Elisabeth and their ballrooms. Alternatively, the longer Grand Tour continues the visit in the eastern rooms of Schönbrunn Palace, where you can admire in particular the state rooms of the imperial couple Maria Theresa and Francis Stephen of Lorraine.
The park surrounding Schönbrunn Palace reflects its 250 years of history, a monument to the prestigious art of the baroque garden in Austria.
