What You Can Expect

Vienna Historical City Tour with Schonbrunn Palace Visit

Visit the majestic Schonbrunn Palace on a city highlights tour

Your tour will begin with pickup from the Vienna Opera House, Südtiroler Platz or your centrally-located hotel. Hop aboard your coach, where you’ll be welcomed by your local guide.

Drive along the Ringstrasse, a boulevard showcasing some of Vienna’s most stunning architecture. Hear the rich history behind Austria’s ‘Opera Ball’ as you pass the Vienna State Opera.

You’ll also see the neoclassical design of the Austrian Parliament, City Hall, Burgtheater and the Museum of Art History. Witness the grandeur of the Hofburg Palace, where Marie Antoinette was born in 1755.

After exploring the city by coach, hop out on foot to roam the Baroque Schönbrunn Palace, where the Hapsburgs spent their summers. Comprising 1,441 rooms, follow your guide through the lavish interior and discover the stories behind this UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Afterward, soak up some free time to walk the gardens, or head to the cafe to purchase a coffee or strudel.

Then, climb back in your coach with your guide and drive to the Belvedere Palace. Wander the incredible collection of Austrian art at a discounted entry price, admiring the 18th-century rooms where works such as Gustav Klimt’s Kiss are displayed.

If you’d prefer more free time to explore, you can walk the Belvedere grounds independently instead, rejoining your guide for transportation back to Südtiroler Platz, with additional complimentary transfer to the State Opera, if desired.

Tour guide was fabulous- fluent in several languages. Although the palace was crowded with lots of tourists, we thought the tour most informative and efficient. Pick up and delivery right on schedule. Thumbs up.

Lovely tour conducted at a comfortable pace with a guide who was both relaxed and very knowledgeable. Schonbrunn was spectacular and we found out so much about poor Elisabeth 'Sisi'. Would highly recommend to anybody taking a city break in Vienna.

We really enjoyed this tour. We were collected from our hotel and taken on an interesting journey through Vienna before arriving at the Schonbrunn Palace. Our tour guide was friendly and helpful and it was a joy to beat the queues no need to queue when you're with a tour guide. We didn't feel rushed inside the palace but would have liked an hour once the tour was finished, mostly because there was a Christmas market. We had a little over half an hour and had to choose between the gardens and the market at the front of the palace. I would recommend this tour though, it's good for the price.
