What to expect

Stroll through Schönbrunn’s lavish formal gardens and park, opened to the public from 1779 as the Habsburg dynasty’s political and cultural dominance reached its peak. It was under Maria Theresa’s direction that Schönbrunn Palace became the focal point of Austria’s imperial policy and the center of court life, in addition to functioning as the summer residence of a reigning family counting not less than 16 children! Witness the height of High Baroque on this expert-led Schönbrunn Palace tour of majestically-designed rooms, recalling the influential role of culture and the arts in the imperial family’s life and its use as a reflection of their power and wealth.
