The Summer Place did not disappoint those expecting grandeur and opulence but you need to be fit it you want to see all the sights, including the summer room at the summit behind the palace.

In October 2016 the gardens where a bit of a desappointment because they were a bit neglected. However they are well worth the walk. What you can see: Maze; Small Gloriette; Neptune Fountain; Roman Ruin; Privy Garden; Schöner Brunnen; Angel Fountain; Obelisk Fountain; Statues; The...More

It's lovely to walk through the gardens, walk up to the Gloriette and take a wagon ride around the periphery of the park.

Absolutely must walk these gardens if you are in Vienna. They are breathtakingly beautiful. Climb up to the Gloriette if you're able to. The view is spectacular

... but on a thundery day the signs warning not to stand under a tree during a lightning storm seemed terrifyingly ridiculous. In the middle of the gardens there are only trees! But what splendid scale, what gigantic vistas, what vicarious memories of secret assignations...More

I was with friends and they brought me up to the summer palace, it was a fair hike and it proved how unfit I was. Access to the roof was not allowed that day as they were setting up for the free open air concert...More

Before or after touring the castle, be sure to visit the lovely gardens beside and behind the castle. There is a beautiful fountain and benches where you can rest and enjoy.

The gardens are spectacular and expansive. The lawns are superbly maintained and the red flowers currently in bloom everywhere is beautiful. We enjoyed a relaxing walk and some quiet time on a bench overlooking the Gloriette. Definitely a must visit.

NIce and interesting, I took the English guide... my hubby and kids were kind of bored but not me. The really bad thing is: no air conditioning... I mean.. hey you European guys, what the heck are you thinking of?

Vienna’s 13th district has always been in the shadow
of Schönbrunn Palace and its gardens, but has
interesting hidden gems waiting to be discovered.
Allow half a day for the imposing Habsburg residence
and the gardens with Gloriette belvedere. Reserve the
other half to discover the secret charms of this posh
residential neighbourhood. Sneak out of the gardens at
Hietzinger Tor (Hietzing Gate) and head down

Hello, i am visiting the Gardens in December before accessing the Zoo. I am not going inside the Palace so i was wondering where is the entrance of the gardens? Is it from a side door? Please i need specific info because the website just has a map without any info! I want to know the exact entrance. Thanks in advance.

You don't need to go inside the Palace. Just take the subway to schoebrunn and you have more than one entrance to the Gardens :) Actually they are pretty nice, so take a look before or after the zoo ;)

What form of transportation do people use to get there? It says it is an hour away on transit transportation. Does anyone pay for taxi? How much is it on taxi? Thank you for your help? Raquel

You can go by U.bahn (U4), it takes maximum 15 min from anywhere downtown. You don't need a taxi in Vienna, the public transportation is excellent and faster than taxis.
