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.
It doubled as James Bond's hotel in the 1987 movie The Living Daylights. It is currently closed for refurbishment.
A Palais Schwarzenberg in Prague also exists near the cathedral on the top of the hill.
