Schoenbrunn Palace was Marie-Antoinette’s summer childhood home and the beautiful and tragic Sissi’s favoured residence.

And from April 30, tourists too can sojourn in…a converted suite of rooms with views over the palace gardens, even with butler, cook and horse-drawn conveyance.

The main targets are wealthy tourists who flock to Vienna from Russia, China, India and Japan…

“Many Japanese people come to Vienna to renew their vows and have beautiful photos and memories, and we hope we can attract some of them,” Reitbauer explained.

“Surprisingly, however, our first bookings are actually people from Vienna.”
