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.

Expensive but worth it for a special occasion. Surroundings, meal and concert was fantastic. Not worth paying extra for the glass of wine in the interval-you can purchase a glass in the foyer, if you really want it but its not the best of wines!

Absolutely fantastic!

We enjoyed every minute of this trip. In fact we wished that we arrived earlier to Schoenbrunn Palace as there is so much to see. The gardens are absolutely beautiful.

The food was very nice, we were all a little worried as to what the set meal would be but it ended up being lovely Beef Consomme for Starter, Braised Beef and Potato Pie in a shallot gravy for Main and a Chocolate and Orange mousse for Desert. and was served in the Palace restaurant.

The opera was held in the Orangerie and again was lovely, we wished it would of lasted a little longer we were enjoying it that much.

I would highly recommend this trip.

Altough the experience of collecting the voucher and the tickets, wasn't so simple as expected, since we had to go to one location to collect the voucher, and then, need to go to another location to convert the voucher in tickets to enter in the tour, apart from that, everything went perfectly.
