Tour Highlights History
Schonbrunn Palace has a long and colorful history. Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian II purchased Katterburg in 1569, where today Schonbrunn's parks and different buildings are situated. He tried to establish a systematic maintenance of wild animals and plantation of rare and exotic plants in Tiergarten Schonbrunn Zoo. He is justifiably called the creator of Schonbrunn's garden arrangement. The new name, Schonbrunn ("beautiful well"), has its roots in a water well from which water was consumed by the royal court in Vienna. In the days of the Turkish sieges Katterburg was nearly destroyed and it appeared to be impossible to restore the castle.
In 20th century the palace was used several times for important events such as the historical meeting between John F. Kennedy and Nikita Khrushchev in the year 1961. The UNESCO placed Schönbrunn Palace on the World Cultural Heritage List in 1996.
The Habsburgs resided in the palace for several years so the palace and the gardens represent the taste and grandiose aspirations of the monarchs. The sculptures in the Schönbrunn garden were generally made between 1773 and 1780 under the the direction of William Beyer.
