Danube River Cruise
At the time of your choice, make your way to the cruise landing pier in downtown Vienna on Schwedenplatz. As you relax and enjoy the sights of the riverfront, see Viennese attractions like Donauturm (Danube Tower), Millennium Tower, Ringturm (Ring Tower), the Spittelau district heating plant, the Urania observatory and much more. The cruise returns to the place of departure at Schwedenplatz.

(The last cruise, at 2pm, returns at 5:20pm, giving you time to make your way to dinner; if you wish to take the subway to dinner, hop on at Schwedenplatz and take the U4 to Schonbrunn station.)

Dinner at Café-Restaurant Residenz
At 6:30pm, your three-course dinner will be served at the elegant Café-Restaurant Residenz, located in the former Schonbrunn Palace kitchen, adjacent to the palace's main entrance. Dine on Austrian fare by candlelight and enjoy the cozy ambience, either indoors or out, depending on the season.

Sample Dinner Menu:
  • Beef consommé with sliced pancake
  • Viennese boiled beef with chive sauce and roasted potatoes
  • Handmade Appelstrudel
(Vegetarian dishes are available upon request)

Concert at the Schonbrunn Palace Orangery
After dinner, head to the elaborately restored Schonbrunn Palace Orangery for your grand finale of classical music. From your seat at this UNESCO World Heritage Site, enjoy music by Austrian composers like Strauss and Mozart, played by the Schonbrunn Palace Orchestra. Doors open at 8pm and the concert begins at 8:30pm. At intermission, toast your Vienna experience with an included glass of sparkling wine (if option selected) and then enjoy the rest of the performance, which ends at 10:15pm. When the night is over, use your public transport ticket to make your way back to your hotel.

We were a group of four. Great river cruise up the Danube from Schwedenplatz, sunny and nice weather. Good idea to start early, as we did. We were at Schoenbrunn early too, to have time to see the castle's interior plus the magnificent garden outside. Dinner at 6:30 pm was ok, and the concert later in the evening was great. With loads of Mozart and Strauss. All put together: Good value for money and a well composed day program.
