The Palmhouse is built of steel and is about 111 m long, 28 m wide and 25 m high with over 45,000 glass panes. The Palmhouse is segregated into three sections and climatic zones. Each of these sections is connected by corridors.
The tallest room in the Palmhouse has exhibits of plants from the Mediterranean region, the Canary Islands, South Africa, America and Australia. The northern room has plants from China, Japan, the Himalayas and New Zealand. The southern room has tropical and subtropical plants.
The plants that grow in the Palmhouse include a 23 meter-tall palm tree. During the spring, the Palmhouse features one of the largest water lilies in the world. The PalmHouse also has 350-year-old olive tree donated by Spain in 1974. The Wollemia, "a living fossil" species, is on display in the Palm House. In 1990 Seychelles had donated a Coco de Mer tree; the flowers of this tree are not expected to bloom for around 50 to 100 years.
The Masjid As-Salam is the closest Masjid to the Schoenbrunn Palace Park. There are also a few halal restaurants close to the area.
