Description

The Palmenhaus Schönbrunn is a large greenhouse in Vienna, Austria featuring plants from around the world. It opened in 1882. It is the most prominent of the four greenhouses in Schönbrunn Palace Park, and is also among the largest botanical exhibits of its kind in the world, with around 4,500 plant species.HistorySeveral forerunners were built in the Palace Park in the 18th and 19th centuries, under Emperors Francis I and Joseph II. The present building was opened in 1882, under Franz Joseph I. Since 1918 it has been run by the Bundesgärten (Federal Gardens).A heavy bomb attack on Schönbrunn Palace in February 1945 destroyed most of the glazing of the Palmenhaus. Many plants died, although some were saved by being transferred to the nearby Sonnenuhrhaus. The rebuilding began in 1948, and the Palmenhaus was reopened in 1953.The building was closed to the public in 1976 as a safety measure following the collapse of the Reichsbrücke. Renovations were carried out between 1986 and 1990.ArchitectureBuilt of steel, the Palmenhaus is 111 metres long, 28 metres wide and 25 metres high, and has 45,000 glass tiles. There are annexes on the north and south sides, serving as a coldhouse and a hothouse respectively.

Gorgeous place to eat breakfast in Vienna! An old greenhouse has been converted into a bright, airy restaurant with amazing food. I'd love to return here in the evening for dinner - the menu looks great! GooglePlace - July 2017

Excellent service and food. We had an extraordinary, English-speaking waiter! Tomato soup was excellent! GooglePlace - July 2017

This place is different than your standard restaurant in the street due to being inside of something like a greenhouse. We order the red snapper which was acceptable and the veal burger which i don't recommend at all. I've never eaten a burger so bland. Maybe it was my mistake ordering a burger in a place like this, but how difficult is it to make a burger. I was with my two year old daughter and she was a handful on that day, and our waiter was unfriendly for that reason. I find that this is unfortunately the norm in Vienna. They don't have that extra kindness. Since my daughter also spilled some milk at the end of the dinner, I figured i'd give the waiter a nice tip for the trouble. Immediately they waiter was in love with us and our daughter. The only thing i can recommend is the Lemongrass prosecco for aperitif. GooglePlace - June 2017

The atmosphere inside is amazing.. Beautiful, high glass ceiling and tropical foliage. Food could be better but service was great. GooglePlace - June 2017

Beautiful place, almost surreal glass house - so if you come try to get a table inside! Even if it's a sunny day outside! but, can't really recommend coming here as the food is quite below average, we ordered the garden breakfast and it was a little bowl of muesli and yogurt, some ham and bread and a cup w super dry vegetables- which were quite inedible!
