Schönbrunn Palace is one of Austria’s most significant cultural assets as well as one of the major sights in Vienna since the 1960s.
Soon after the fall of the Habsburg monarchy the Viennese discovered the palace and its surroundings as their recreational area, located in the heart of the city. Finally the palace was opened to the public as well as to international visitors and now attracts around 1.5 million visitors each year.
The park and other parts of the Schönbrunn estate draw a further 5.2 million, totalling 6.7 million visitors who are ravished by the historical and natural beauty of Schönbrunn every year.
In December 1996, Schönbrunn Palace was included in UNESCO’s world heritage catalogue on occasion of the 20th meeting of the world heritage committee (founded in 1972). The registration as world heritage site confirms the importance of Schönbrunn palace and the entire estate as a baroque masterpiece.
