The Schönbrunn Palace Orangery – built in 1754 by Nicola Pacassi – ranks among the world’s biggest baroque orangery buildings. Spanning a length of 189 metres, it is even longer than the palace itself. The orangery was much more than just a winter home for citrus fruits and potted plants: it also served as a flourishing winter garden for the imperial family’s festivities. Joseph II enjoyed feasts with lavishly decorated tables inside the Orangery, which was filled with flowers and illuminated citrus trees.
To this day the back section of the building has retained its original function; the front part, which has been renovated, provides the perfect setting to celebrate bigger wedding parties. We can make you a very special offer: exchange your vows on the green lawn in the gardens of the Orangery – a lovely place for your unforgettable outdoor wedding!
The Orangery can cater for civil weddings with up to 400 guests; there is plenty of room for fabulous parties of 120 and more following the ceremony!
Civil weddings are held weekdays at 4 p.m. and on Saturdays between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
