  • Skip the Line: Schönbrunn Palace & Vienna City Tour

    1. Skip the Line: Schönbrunn Palace & Vienna City Tour

    Benefit from the advantages of this tour and skip the queues at Schönbrunn Palace! Get an overall impression of the most significant historical sights in Vienna! By bus, the tour will take you along the Ringstraße, home to numerous architectural gems such as the State Opera, the Museum of Art History with its world-famous collection, the Habsburg Museum and the Museum of Natural History. Discover the museum quarter, the Hofburg Palace (the Emperors' winter residence), the Austrian Parliament, the City Hall, and the Court Theater. The highlight of your visit is a guided tour through the halls of Schönbrunn Palace, the former imperial summer residence that hosted Maria Theresa, amongst others. 

    We thought the driving portion of the tour was a bit rushed and the German and English commentary often left the English comments until the landmark had passed.

It was a great tour with our guide Karlheinz. Very knowledgeable, always nice anecdotes woven in and served in an entertaining way. We felt very comfortable with him. Thanks also to the driver Andreas who drove us through the streets of Vienna.

It was a great tour, Romana put a lot of effort into it! The small glimpse into the beautiful garden and view of the zoo invite you to spend a few more hours there (without a tour). Gladly again!

Was a very nice and relaxed tour, with a small group. We got a lot of interesting information from our guide.

Take 10am tour and, after the tour visit flea market and then visit any other museums

Excellent. Guide was very helpful and knowledgeable.
