Neptune Fountain and Gloriette from Schönbrunn Palace
Vienna Schönbrunn Park Attractions
Although the “primary” landmark of Schönbrunn is Schönbrunn Palace, the huge park behind the palace offers several other tourist attractions and interesting places: the Gloriette (on the top of the hill on the picture), Neptune Fountain (at the foot of the hill), Schönbrunn Zoo, Tirol House, roman ruins, fountains, and vast arrays of perfectly organized flowers.

Hotels in Schönbrunn
Because Schönbrunn is outside Vienna city centre, the number of hotels is much lower here. Nevertheless, it is a very beautiful place to stay – very green, quieter, and in case of many hotels cheaper than Vienna Inner City. Here you can see more details and book hotels near Schönbrunn.
How to get to Schönbrunn
Schönbrunn Palace and Park can be conveniently reached by public transport from Vienna city centre. You can take U-Bahn (metro) line U4 and get off at Schönbrunn Station (near the north-eastern corner of Schönbrunn Park and closer to Vienna city centre) or Hietzing Station (near the north-western corner of Schönbrunn Park and close to Schönbrunn Zoo and Tirol House). Schönbrunn Park and especially the Gloriette is relatively close to Wien Meidling Train Station (from this station, you enter Schönbrunn Park on the hill and don’t need to climb to the Gloriette).
