State Apartments

A tour of the State Apartments offers the best of Schönbrunn Palace. Here you’ll see unique interior ensembles with grand halls and exquisite cabinets, giving you an impression of courtly display at the time of Maria Theresa as well as insights into the monarch’s personal tastes.

The Ceremonial Rooms at the Centre of the Palace

The State Apartments include the Great and Small Galleries with their magnificent stuccowork and frescos. Both rooms formed the festive setting for ceremonial events, balls and private family celebrations from the time of Maria Theresa to the early twentieth century. The ‘Chinese Cabinets’ are an impressive example of Maria Theresa’s love of precious items from East Asia. Large-format paintings provide an impressive record of important events in the reign of the monarch that influenced the course of European politics and were intended to be commemorated for posterity.
