Most visitors could easily miss this little museum which is located at one corner of Schonbrunn Palace. My husband and I loved it - we were wowed by some of the imperial carriages and there were even an imperial hearse. It's worth a visit.
We enjoyed this more than we expected to. The museum can be found through the archway on the right hand side after you have crossed the front courtyard to the Palace. Allow up to an hour. Photos are allowed. There are basic descriptions next to...More
Visited this attraction whilst at the Palace. I wasn't sure about it before we went in, but I'm glad we decided to go in.
I would recommend getting an audio guide, it made the visit so much more pleasurable. The information provided really adds value...More
An honest confession : stumbled upon the exhibition as had time to kill for my grand tour entry to the palace. Since it was covered in the vienna card we stumbled upon it. Has an impressive collection of carriage.Worth a visit.
Went with my husband and mother in a wheelchair. The exhibits were extremely varied, from baby carriages to sleighs to landaus, massive state coaches and even a state hearse. A spacious display area although we could not access the first floor. Atmosphere in the area...More
I love carriages and sleighs so this museum was perfect for me. We didn’t pay 2 euros for an audio guide but we didn’t miss out on information as there are lengthy descriptions in English next to every exhibit. We enjoyed the videos about different...More
This is an amazing small museum. The carriages are so ornate and well preserved. It is interesting to see the plush and luxuriously sumptuous interiors. I also enjoyed the historian on the t.v. that was set up in various rooms. At least the one that...More
Vienna’s 13th district has always been in the shadow of Schönbrunn Palace and its gardens, but has interesting hidden gems waiting to be discovered. Allow half a day for the imposing Habsburg residence and the gardens with Gloriette belvedere. Reserve the other half to discover the secret charms of this posh residential neighbourhood. Sneak out of the gardens at Hietzinger Tor (Hietzing Gate) and head down
Hietzinger Hauptstrasse for Kaiserpavillon (Emperor’s pavilion), an Art Nouveau gem right on top of U4’s metro railtracks. At local institutions Café Dommayer and restaurant Plachutta you can mingle with residents, their families and friends. Dommayer has risen to fame since waltz king Johann Strauss and his orchestra performed there regularly. If you want to go beyond private villa gazing visit Klimtvilla and Hermesvilla. Art Nouveau genius Gustav Klimt had his last studio in a now beautifully renovated villa, which is open during spring and summer. Hermesvilla at Lainzer Tiergarten animal enclosure and nature park is a must for all romantics and fans of Empress Sissi.
