The  maze in the park at Schönbrunn Palace actually consists  of three parts: The maze, the labyrinth and the labyrinthicon playground. The maze was initially laid  out around 1720 and then gradually abandoned until the last hedges  were felled in 1892. In 1999, it was reconstructed  based on historical models  over an area of 1715m². The labyrinth is a relaxing place filled with  games and fun for young and old like.

Things to see at Schönbrunn Palace and Estate:

The palace gardens

The Palace gardens and park were open to the public in 1779 by Josepf II. It was Maria Theresias who helped design the intricate style and landscaping still visible today. The gardens reflect the same Baroque style and concepts – architecture and nature should be intertwined – that extend from the palace itself. The gardens were meant to be a symbol of imperial power, so don’t miss the ordered, symmetrical beds of the Great Parterre and the Botanical Garden.

Please note that the attractions in the Palace gardens are closed during the winter month (mid November to mid March). Please check the seasonal opening hours.
