Schönbrunn Palace and the Strudel Show

Updated: May 17, 2020

The Schönbrunn Palace is a Unesco World Heritage Site and one of the central tourist sites in Vienna. It was the palace of the emperors and empresses from the end of the 17th century. Franz Josef made it his primary residence.

Today it serves as a museum.

There are two options for tours in the palace. The shorter takes 40 minutes, while the more extended trip takes 20 minutes more. Due to the mass of visitors, the tourists move together from room to room, accompanied by an excellent audio guide.

Unfortunately, it's not allowed to take pictures. You will have to come and see those marvelous rooms yourself.

I highly recommend buying tickets online in advance - the entrance is by time slots, and if a time slot is occupied - you won't be able to come in. Reservation tickets online will keep you from hours of waiting.

Behind the palace lies a vast park, which during our visit was covered with snow. Beautiful.

The Strudel Show

The Residenz Cafe is now running where the palace's bakery used to be. It runs the Strudel Show every 20 minutes (Reserve your place online!) - A bilingual guide explains in German and English how to prepare a strudel while preparing. And of course, you can watch it while you eat a great piece of strudel. They even give the recipe in the end. It was fun and tasty.
