What You Can Expect

Schönbrunn Palace Evening: Palace Tour, Dinner and Concert

Explore one of Vienna's must-see attractions at your own pace

As the former summer residence of the powerful Habsburg dynasty, the UNESCO-listed Schönbrunn Palace is considered by many as one of Europe’s most stunning baroque structures.

Step inside the palace with your entrance ticket, and begin your evening with a 1-hour audio tour. Enjoy a self-guided exploration of the guest apartments, along with the lavish decor of Emperor Franz Joseph’s quarters.

Afterward, head to the nearby Ehrenhof restaurant to savor three courses of delicious Austrian fare. (A sample menu can be found in the Itinerary section below.) In the summer months (from May to September), enjoy outside seating on the terrace while you dine.

Appetites sated, continue to the palace Orangery for your classical music concert. Take your seat in your chosen ticket category and enjoy a performance from the Schönbrunn Palace Orchestra, accompanied by a soprano and baritone as well as two ballet dancers. Hear famous arias and overtures by Strauss and Mozart, such as Radetzkymarsch, Don Giovanni and Le Nozze di Figaro.

Enjoy sparkling wine at intermission if you select a VIP or category A seat. Your evening of Austrian culture and cuisine will conclude after the concert.

Fantastic, definitely worth going to on the tour of the palace before hand. At this time of the year there is a Christmas Market in front of the Palace which is very good. Easy to get to the palace on the U4 underground line.

Excelent musicians, singers and dancers! We had our dinner inside at the next hotel, but food was very nice either.

For value this could not be beaten. Paying only 68 for a lovely meal, tour of Schonbrunn Palace including the gardens, and a concert with a bit of ballet added in the Orangerie where Mozart gave a first performance of one of his lesser known pieces of music was so special, and a memory I shall never forget, along with my memories of Vienna as a child aged 13 when I was last there.

WHAT A GREAT CONCERT. PLEASE ADVISE CUSTOMERS TO ARRIVE AT THE PALACE NO LATER THAN 4PM WE DID. DOING THIS, GIVES YOU AN ENTIRE HOUR TO VISIT THE PALACE THE FOOD WAS NOT BAD AND THE CONCERT WAS SUPERB

This was a fabulous experience. Viator made it easy to skip the line, do the palace tour, and then take some free time to explore we went to the coach museum before going to dinner. Food was excellent, some of the best we ate in Vienna. And the concert was the best of all---extremely entertaining, both for the professionalism of the musicians and the congenial humor of the conductor. I recommend it highly.
