Information on the half-day excursion to Schönbrunn on Wednesday 9 July

ENOC conferences have a tradition of a half-day excursion during the conference. The excursion was organized in Schönbrunn, where we visited the imperial palace, the gardens, the famous zoo and the nearby Technical Museum. Afterwards, we met at a tavern next to the park (and zoo) for snacks and drinks.

Participants who want to remember the attractions offered during the excursion, may find the following information and links useful.





  TOUR 5

  • This kind of tour is meant for participants who like to be independent, dont like crowds and are willing and able to explore Schönbrunn by themselves. Tour 5 is a non-guided tour and includes the admission tickets to the same attractions as Tour 1. But you will be on your own and can decide when you want to see what.


Information on the Conference Banquet on Thursday, 10 July, 7 pm

On Thursday evening, the official Conference Banquet took place in the “Orangerie” of Schönbrunn Palace.

Interested to know where the name “Orangerie” comes from? The orangery building was erected by Nicola Pacassi around the year 1745. The south-facing façade is decorated with alternating smaller and larger round arches with pilasters decorated with masks. The inside spaces are marked by sectionalized flat vaults and a floor heating system ensured an adequate room temperature. However, the Orangery was much more than simply a winter home for citrus trees and potted plants, as it also served as a blooming winter garden for the royals’ festivities. Joseph II thoroughly enjoyed parties with festive table decorations inside the Orangery, which was full of illuminated citrus trees and flowers. The back portion of the Orangery building is still being used in its original function to this day. In the front part, which has been renovated, the Schönbrunn Palace Concerts are held.
