Why Travelers Choose This Tour
This flexible tour allows you to take your time and have a palace audio tour at any time during opening hours.
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 an 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 concludes after the concert.
We really enjoyed the opportunity to see the Palace in our own time. The dinner was delicious and presented and served really well. The concert was also excellent. A great tour. Give yourself plenty of time to visit the gardens as they are very big and worth spending lots of time in them.
Having spent a day in the palace grounds on a 3 week school holiday staying outside the city 60 years ago, I always promised to come back. This day was even more magical than the first, to still be able to climb the stairs in the Gloriette was a dream, although I didn’t run across the top this time. The dinner and concert were all a bonus as was the wonderful palace. With over 50 12 year olds running about we were not allowed inside then but my Husband and I made up for it this time.
concert and dinner was great very nice atmosphere.
We had to go a day early to see exactly where it was also to see the garden i suggested you go in the morning to see the garden and don't combine both things
This was a wonderful tour of an amazing place the dinner was wonderful to experience real Vienesse food and the concert was just spine tingling in the amazing golden hall .So worth it and the gardens were lovely too. The carriage museum is excellent also
It'd not hurt to include the timing of the guided tour in your write up to prevent any unpleasant surprises. We only found out that the last tour is at 4.30pm when we arrived at the ticket office at 5.15pm. Although we were given the option of going back the next day, it'd mean changing your plans.
The 3 course dinner was poor and not worth the price.
While the performers were good, they were let down by the acoustic of the hall. Also the seats were uncomfortable.
The saving grace from our experience is the garden around the palace which is free of charge.
Great event but be forewarned, your ticket does not provide a time for entry, which is assigned at the ticket office itself (not where you pick up your passes), and could be many hours later than your arrival. Large crowds appear in the AM, we got there at 10 and were assigned a 3:30 tour! Also, we booked the top tier concert seats (first 3 rows) and WELL worth the cost. Strongly suggested.
The concert was great and the meal was very pleasant. However, our tickets said 6.30. We arrived at 6 and were told that we were too late for the tour. This is so unclear on the tickets and we were massively disappointed to not be able to do this. I have emailed Viator but have had no response.
The descriptions really need to make this clearer. Also our tickets were more expensive than other people there doing exactly the same thing as us.
A great experience and at the same time a disappointment

As you well know we ordered a package the rate of which was at all not cheap...
While we felt that we got value for money regarding the tour and especially regarding the lovely concert we feel that it is our duty to make a strong remark regarding the Dinner.
The least one could expect is to have a choice within the three course menu and not a fixed non-flexible one. Our request from the waiters to offer at least the children a more "friendly" manu were at the beginning rejected stubbornly. Only after we have spoken to a nice gentleman in the name of Avni (I hope I correctly remember the name) the children were served with some "eatable" courses to their tastes.
As we understood different tables were served different manues but ours was strictly fixed.
I think more generosity in this respect could have served better the overall impression of the whole experience at the Palace.
this tour was well worth the price, but be advised...leave lots of time to see it all. We were a little late to the Palace and ended up with only enough time to do the tour and then head off to dinner. The grounds surrounding the Palace really deserve another 2 hours to do it justice. We had already booked the hop-on, hop-off Vienna pass, so we came back the next day to tour the grounds.
As for the evening dinner and show, to be fair, the dinner was just OK likely the worst meal we had in Vienna in 4 days. The concert was enjoyable, and even though I am not a great fan of classical music, I found the show great.
