Schönbrunn used to be the home of choice to Austrian Emperors and now it is mainly one of the top landmarks of Vienna. There are in fact many tourist attractions in Schönbrunn: the palace itself, its beautiful gardens, the vast Schönbrunn park with Roman Ruins, Vienna Zoo and many other things.
If you are trying to find a hotel in Vienna, Schönbrunn might be the right place to stay. It is located outside the city centre and therefore it is very peaceful and clean, with lots of parks and trees. In fact not only tourists, but also locals often visit Schönbrunn to run, walk, or relax in the park. The number of hotels near Schönbrunn is limited (compared to the inner city) – they are mostly 3 or 4 star hotels, often family-run. Room rates are often slightly lower in Schönbrunn hotels compared to those in the city centre.

Although Schönbrunn is outside the inner city, it has convenient public transport connections, namely 2 U-Bahn (metro) lines (U4 and U6) with train intervals between 2 to 10 minutes on each line, daily from early morning to short after midnight. The ride from Schönbrunn to the Inner City takes about 10-12 minutes. Furthermore, the nearby Meidling Train Station / Philadelphiabrücke Metro Station gives you access to the Viennese S-Bahn (urban train) network.
On the way from Schönbrunn to the inner city there are several other good hotel locations with excellent public transport access to both Schönbrunn and city centre. One such location is Wien Westbahnhof (Vienna West Train Station) at the intersection of Gürtel and the famous shopping street Mariahilfer Strasse.
Because of the limited accommodation capacities in Schönbrunn, many hotels are often fully booked. It is therefore highly recommended to book your hotel in advance, especially when you want to stay over weekend, during public holidays, or in the peak summer tourist season.
