view web site ›'s insider take:

Emperor Franz Joseph, Empress Elisabeth, and Empress Maria Theresa and her 13 children (including Marie Antoinette) all once resided in this 18th-century Baroque palace in the 13th district. It's now a UNESCO World Heritage site, and visitors can tour up to 40 public salons and private apartments, including the Great Gallery, where JFK met Khrushchev in 1961. In the 1750s, Maria Theresa's consort, Emperor Franz Stephan, founded the palace gardens and a menagerie, which is now the oldest zoo in the world. The grounds also include a collection of imperial carriages, a small opera theater, and an extraordinary wrought-iron-and-glass greenhouse.

Open daily April through June 8:30 am to 5 pm, July through August 8:30 am to 6 pm, September through October 8:30 am to 5 pm, November through March 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.
