Find your way through the Baroque maze in Schönbrunn Palace Park!

Find your way through the Baroque maze in Schönbrunn Palace Park! The maze was designed around 1720, but by 1892 it had gradually been removed. It was not until 9 September 1999 that the new maze, based on historical models and covering an area of 1,715 m², was finally re-opened. There is a viewing platform at the centre of the maze and two energising harmony stones activated by feng shui masters Jes and Julie Lim. It is alleged that if you place your hands on the stones it strengthens the flow of energy and enhances inner harmony.


Reconstructed on the basis of historical plans, today the Labyrinth is an exciting invitation to a journey full of discoveries.

Over a total area of 2,700 m² there are fun and games for all ages waiting to be tried out. For instance, you can explore different types of labyrinth with your fingers, or master simple hopping games. You can distort your reflection from all sides in a giant kaleidoscope. Athletic types can shin up a pole and ring the bell at the top. A maths puzzle awaits those looking for a mental challenge: numbers on the flagstones tell you the number of steps you’re allowed to take, and you have to end up exactly in the middle of the game. But there are also more difficult variants for you to try!

The Labyrinth is a place for play and recreation – fun for visitors of all ages.


Designed by playground design expert Günter Beltzig, the Labyrinthikon is one of the unique highlights of a visit to the park at Schönbrunn.

A playground for experimenting and romping around – for children and the young-at-heart!
