Schönbrunn Palace, together with its ancillary buildings and extensive park, is by virtue of its long and colourful history one of the most important cultural monuments in Austria. Scheduled as a listed monument, the whole ensemble, including the palace, the park with its numerous architectural features, fountains and statues, and not least the zoo, the oldest of its kind in the world was placed on the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage List in 1996.
Schoenbrunn Palace can easily be explored individually with Audio Guides. Make sure though to book entrance times in advance!
