Schönbrunn Palace is a World Cultural Heritage site and Austria’smost-visited tourist attraction. This Baroque architectural masterpiece,which was owned over many centuries by the Habsburgs and consists of the Palace and Gardens, is still largely in its original condition.Visitors can enjoy numerous attractions, from a tour through theauthentically-furnished living and state areas used by the imperial family inside the Palace, to the maze and labyrinth in the Gardens,as well as the Palace's own Children's Museum.
At the 20th session of the World Heritage Committee held in December 1996, Schönbrunn Palace was put on the list of UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Sites, an institution founded in 1972. Inclusion in this list confirms the importance of the palace and its gardens as a unique Baroque ensemble.
