Elegant 19th-century grande dame modeled on a Baroque palace, a short walk from Schönbrunn Palace
A short walk from magnificent Schönbrunn Palace, the former summer residence of Austria’s emperors and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this grand hotel dates from 1823, and it served as a residence for guests visiting Emperor Joseph throughout his reign. The exterior is modeled on a Baroque palace, and the public areas feature chandeliers, original Habsburg family portraits, dark wood furniture and polished marble checkerboard floors. The guestrooms are classically styled but in a modern neutral color scheme, and they feature free WiFi, pillow menus and flat-screen TVs. Most offer a view of the hotel's courtyard or the palace gardens. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in an imposing dining room with parquet floors and chandeliers, and the Schlosscafé serves traditional Viennese coffee and pastries, either inside or on the terrace. Don’t miss a nightcap at the Gloriette Bar, named for the famous pavilion in the Schönbrunn Palace gardens.
In the Area
Classic Pass tickets to Schönbrunn Palace include access to state rooms, the Gloriette and the garden maze. In downtown Vienna there are more than two dozen castles and 150 palaces to explore. But the city blends the old with the new, and Baroque buildings, Art Nouveau train stations and modern glass and steel structures stand contentedly side by side. The best way to get around is on two wheels; City Bikes can be picked up and dropped off at various locations. Head for the Freihausviertel area for hip galleries, boutiques and cafés. Take a trip to the top of the 450-foot spire of St. Stephen’s Cathedral for impressive views of the city. And stop for a coffee at Café Landtmann; it's been a Viennese institution since 1873 and has been frequented by everyone from Freud and Mahler to Marlene Dietrich.
