Orangery at Schönbrunn Palace

Orangery at Schönbrunn Palace

Orangery at Schönbrunn Palace was originally conceived as a Baroque greenhouse for citrus trees and ornamental plants overwintering. The Habsburgs, however, soon began to use Orangery premises for majestic celebration and events.

 

The Orangery was built around 1745 for emperor Francis I. Stephen, by Nicola Pacassi (full name Nikolaus Franz Leonhard vonPacassi) who worked at the imperial court as a court architect.

 

The tradition of majestic celebrations and events in Orangery continues today. Orangery hosts wedding celebrations, concerts as well as corporate events or seminars. Great experience could be also interpretaions of the most famous works of Mozart and Strauss in period costumes, that, according to guide, runs every night.
