Your Christmas tour to the Baden Schloss was the best Christmas I have ever had. I want especially to thank our guide, for her excellent guidance. She deserves a big thanks from all our friends. The zither player was special, and the food wonderful. I am an old man now, and I will remember your tour always as the epitome of generousity and friendship. Thank you sll so much, and Happy New Year.

Thoroughly enjoyable experience! However, I didn't get a real castle feel since the place is a hotel and spa with a medieval interior look and feel. The mass was held in a nearby parish and not a cathedral. Aside from these slight differences than the expectations, the overall experience is great and the Austrian hospitality is great.

It was nice to have something organized for Xmas Eve. The food was very good. The location was nice, but not your fairy tale castle . The music was great, but should have been only Xmas. Attending a local midnight mass was special, but the church was not ready to accommodate all these extra people.

Really overpriced and guided by someone who really didnt care. We knew we would find it hard to find somewhere for xmas eve so for that reason it was still worth it, but the romance of the castle was really not all that. Renovated beyond recognition.

The food was a dissappointment,but the venue was quite fun.Not really a typical castle I had pictured it to be .I was surprised there was very little entertainment to give the night more of a christmas mood.The mass after dinner at the chapel was a highlight .

The dinner was not in a palace but rather in a convention center right next to an apartment complex.. The church was not in the woods but right in town. Very disappointing and over priced.

This was a very expensive trip that started in a long wait in the car park, followed by a very poor dinner - cold salty soup, dry turkey, over sweet desert. The 'present' was a small cake that had been forgotten on our table and we had to fight to get a coffee. This was made worse by constant nagging from our tour guide about timings. The church was boiling, despite the fact that we were told to dress up warm so we had to try to get the layers off during the service. Very, very disappointing - except for some good company on our table!

It was a mass of two hours in German. Why is it in German if it is for foreign tourists? Why was the mass was not mentioned clearly in the program? The dinner was not good! The lady guide was so aggressive! A very expensive trip for nothing!

Note from Viator: Thank you for your review. We apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced during your tour. We have changed and updated the midnight mass description as well as the menu. Thank you for helping us ensure the quality of our tours.
