Imperial Palace Schönbrunn Concerts

Palace tour
Empress Maria Theresa made Schloss Schoenbrunn into her magnificent summer residence. All her successors resided at the palace during summer and ruled the empire from there. Especially Emperor Franz Joseph liked to spend his time at the Palace Schoenbrunn. Take a tour of the glamorous and private rooms of the emperors accompanied by an audio guide. For groups of 15 people or more a separate guide will be available to show you the apartments of Maria Theresa exclusively and outside the regular opening times of the palace.


At the Ehrenhof ('Court of Honor'), right beside the entrance of Schloss Schoenbrunn, in the rooms of the Restaurant Tafelspitz. Here, you will enjoy a three-course dinner.


In walking distance from the main entrance to Schloss Schoenbrunn and the Café-Restaurant Residenz lies the Orangery Schoenbrunn. Since imperial times, this was a place for courtly festivities and banquets. During one of these events Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Antonio Salieri held a unique music contest. In this historic ambience the Schoenbrunn Palace Orchestra performs the most beautiful works of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Johann Strauss.

From the beginning of April to the end of October, at Christmas and at New Year's Eve, the concert will be performed by the Schoenbrunn Palace Orchestra in grand cast. In late autumn and in winter the concert will be performed by the Schoenbrunn Chamber Ensemble.


The Schoenbrunn Palace Orangery

The widowed Empress Wilhelmine Amalie had an orangery garden installed in Schoenbrunn with the purpose of overwintering her bitter orange plants inside a greenhouse.

Even today, concerts are held in grand old style in this historical location. Clad in historical dress, the Schoenbrunn Palace Orchestra interprets the most famous works by Mozart and Strauss at the original location every evening.
