Schönbrunn Palace Grand Suite
Vienna - Vienna - Austria
This suite, at what is undoubtedly the most noble address in all of Vienna, offers everything certain to set the pulses of lovers of all-things-royal racing with pure delight: a salon, two bedrooms, a spacious living room, two modern baths, as well as a kitchenette that has been kept in black-and-white.
Schönbrunn Palace is one of Austria’s most famous cultural treasures, epitomizing the glory and splendour of the imperial court. You, too, can experience this unique atmosphere by staying in an exquisite suite in the east wing of the palace, in the self-same rooms where it is said that Elisabeth Petznek, daughter of Crown Prince Rudolf and known as the “Red Archduchess”, once resided towards the end of the monarchy.
Live like an emperor in the Schloss Schönbrunn Grand Suite
In this imperial setting, up to four guests can dine and sleep like royalty. This spacious 167 m² suite, at what is undoubtedly the most noble address in all of Vienna, offers everything certain to set the pulses of lovers of all-things-royal racing with pure delight: a salon, two bedrooms, a large living room, two modern baths as well as a kitchenette which has been kept in black-and-white. The absolute highlight is the unique view of the Gloriette, the Neptune Fountain, the Crown Prince’s Garden, as well as the 160-hectare palace grounds.
Authentic imperial atmosphere in gold, black and white, with red court damask
During painstaking remodelling efforts that adhered strictly to monument protection provisions, the foremost goal was to preserve the imperial ambience of Schönbrunn as a listed UNESCO World Heritage site, though without foregoing any modern elements. During their stay, guests should have the impression they truly do reside in a palace – faithful to the original whenever possible, in combination with high-quality hotel standards. The interior décor and amenities are orientated around the style of the former summer residence of the Habsburg family. The best example of this is a unique interpretation of Neo Rococo, also nicknamed the “Maria-Theresa Style”, which had become practically compulsory at the Viennese court from the 1830’s on. Famous to this day is, above all, the furniture framed in white gold with red damask upholstery. This harmonious play of colour was also referenced whilst furbishing the new suite. All rooms in the suite greet guests with décor dipped in gold, black and white, along with individual pieces that are inspired by the palace itself. An indispensable element is the famous court damask – also known as “pineapple damask” – a red silk fabric with its main characteristic motif being a stylized pineapple fruit, used exclusively at the Viennese court. Likewise, individual red wall coverings decorate one of the bedrooms, which is also furnished with a magnificent gold-bordered black bed, a leather-covered desk and a gold-patinated dresser. The central piece in the master bedroom is a romantic four-poster bed, featuring ornamental wood carvings and draped with exquisite golden fabrics, from where you also enjoy a marvellous view of the Schönbrunn palace park. A hallway decorated with Moire wallpaper and rich stuccowork connects the two sleeping chambers. Guests dine in the salon whilst seated on chairs covered with pineapple damask and featuring the traditional white paint and gold applications associated with the Stallions Room of Schönbrunn. Tasteful stuccowork and Maria Theresa chandeliers add the fishing touches to these regal rooms.
