The Court Plant Garden is one of several ornamental gardens within the grounds of Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna. Emperor Franz I was a keen amateur botanist with means (being married to Empress Maria Theresia), and in 1753 he purchased a filed from the neighbouring village of Hietzing. In this he laid out a "Dutch Garden" and imported plants from Australia and South Africa. A summerhouse was later built to accommodate and protect the plants during the winter. Four plane trees near to the Palmhaus date from this period.

After 1828 the Dutch-Botanic Garden was transformed into an English style landscape and renamed the "Court Plant Garden". This panoramic shows some of the plated beds and central fountain of the garden.

The Court Plant Garden is at the far west of the Schlosspark, near to the Palm House and close to the Hietzinger Tor (Hietzinger Gate) entrance to the park. It is one of many attractions in the Schlosspark which include the Neptunbrunnen (Neptune Fountain) and Gloriette. Others, like the Irrgarten (Maze Garden), Tiergarten (Zoo), Palmhaus (Palm House), Wstenhaus (Desert House) and Kronzprinzgarten, have ticketed entrance fees.
