Itinerary

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:

(Vegetarian dishes are available upon request)
  • Beef consommé with semolina Dumpling /A,C,L/
  • Braised beef roast with shallot-gravy, potato pie & tomatoes /A,O,L,G/
  • Apple Strudel – handmade in our Imperial Bakery Schoenbrunn with whipped cream /A,C,G/

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.

We had an awesome time and well worth the money. No matter what, arrive early at all the venues and you wont be disappointed.

Both my partner and I thoroughly enjoyed this trip. The Danube River Cruise was interesting especially going through the first set of locks, an additional plus was the fact that you could dine whilst enjoying your cruise. The staff were very efficient. We also really enjoyed our dining experience at the palace, a lovely meal was presented to us by very pleasant staff. The highlight of the evening being the evening concert this was really very good even though we are both not really classical music people, we found the combination of people playing and other people entertaining us on stage a really enjoyable experience. Well done to the conductor who was also an entertainer himself involving the audience to participate. A really enjoyable day and a good balance of Viennese culture.

The only negative was having to go to the palace orangery first to pick up the tickets and then having to get to the pick-up point for the river cruise and then back to the orangery.

We had the most wonderful evening! The Danube, dinner at the palace and music that was delightful! I would do it again! Our waiter, Philip was incredible. He was so attentive even though the entire place was buzzing with people and activity. Very polite and so thoughtful. The musicians were true professionals and never missed a beat and the conductor was world class.

The logistics of this package is very difficult. You should be able to pick your tickets up at least the day before. The cruise on the Danube was very boring, in fact, we got off on the first stop. The dinner was very average.The concert was very good. I would recommend just the going to the concert

The cruise was very nice and relaxing. The dinner was excellent. The concert was fabulous. but be prepared to walk a long way to the Palace and back again to the concert hall. I would recommend this combo trip to anyone.

A wonderful day!! 3 hour river cruise with some great refreshments on board. Lovely 3 course dinner at Schonbrunn followed by a delightful concert in the Main Hall of the palace. I am not a classical music fan and the Strauss section was better for me than the Mozart.
My daughter and I would do it all again if/when we go back to Vienna.

The concert and dinner were fantastic and something you should do while in Vienna. The river cruise was a little boring. It was 3 hours of mainly the Danube Canal with not a lot to see..... it was hot and boring. If we knew what it was like before we went we would have somehow made the cruise half the time....Is that possible....I don't know!!!!

We enjoyed both parts of this package ,the boat cruise through the Danube canal and river gave good views of Vienna . The concert was very good , the dinner was ok but no choice of menu . The only downside to buying this package is that you have to pick up your tickets at the concert location and that means an extra trip out to Schonbrun at the start of the day at your own expense which takes about an hour round trip before you go to the boat dock . I would think that with the volume of people doing this tour and the sophistication of booking software that the two events could coordinate themselves so that one could pick up the tickets at the boat dock and start the day there.

This was a very rainy day in Vienna. This was the best most of the day activity: boat ride noisy but we got to see lost of the Danube, Schonbrunn Palace castle dinner, and concert the concert could have been better, but it was just OK. They even included subway fare and we spent the entire day....without getting wet!
