Construction started in 1697 under the architect Johann Lucas von Hildebrandt and finished with alterations in 1728 under Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach. Construction was supervised by master-builder Anton Erhard Martinelli. In 1751, a riding school and an orangery were added. The richly decorated Marmorgalerie (marble gallery) is one of the largest features in the palace.
A Palais Schwarzenberg in Prague also exists near the cathedral on the top of the hill.
