When visiting the Schonbrunn park, you'll have to go here too. The view is amazing. The question is if it is worth going up on the roof or not. There is a small fee to access the roof but you'll get a pretty good view...More

No, you cannot walk around the gardens or up the hill 24/7. There are opening and closing hours for the park as well. Go to their site and you can see what the working hours are, all depends on the season. The parks are free.
