The Schönbrunn Desert House is a desert botanical exhibit in Vienna that is located in the Sundial House that was built in 1904 and commissioned by Emperor Franz Joseph I based on designs by the architect Alfons Custodis for the overwintering of his botanical specimens from Australia and South Africa called the ‘New Holland Collection’. The Schönbrunn Desert House now features the most valuable specimens from the collection of cactuses and other water-retentive, drought-resistant plants, divided over three themed habitats: Madagascar, and deserts of the Old and New Worlds.
