The history of Schönbrunn Palace
Schönbrunn Palace is an important cultural asset of Austria, built as early as the 14th century. Over the centuries, it served as a hunting lodge, summer residence of the Habsburgs and residence of the imperial family. Today it offers a unique opportunity to celebrate a wedding in a historical setting. The originally furnished imperial state rooms and living quarters, which you can visit, provide insights into the times when Emperor Franz Joseph, Empress Elisabeth and Maria Theresa resided here.

Wedding at Schönbrunn Palace – the options for an outdoor wedding ceremony
An outdoor wedding ceremony, in the idyllic Orangery Garden, offers a unique setting for saying yes under the open sky. Here, situated between vines, there is enough space for a ceremony in front of the romantic backdrop of fountains and palm trees with a view of the castle. After the ceremony, the terrace in the Orangery Garden is at your disposal for the subsequent agape.
The Maria Theresia Room in the Apothekertrakt
The Maria Theresia Room in the Apothekertrakt is ideal for a wedding celebration with up to 150 people. Rare citrus trees were cultivated here in the 18th century. This room and the spacious adjoining rooms offer you a variety of possibilities for your celebration. The outdoor areas, such as the apothecary courtyard, with lime and chestnut trees provide shade, even on hot summer days. The party rooms and foyer open directly onto the terrace in the Orangery Garden, a green oasis with vines, roses and palms, shielded from the urban hustle and bustle. Here, a Mediterranean flair spreads at sunset.
