Vienna: Schönbrunn Palace & Gardens Skip-the-Line Tour
- Skip the ticket line
- Duration: 1 hour
Vienna's history is ever-present, and a walking tour through its streets will lead you on a journey from the Roman era to the reign of the Habsburgs, interwoven with classics in music and art.
It's one of the city's oldest squares and was once the heart of the Roman camp known here as Vindobonna. The Roman Museum houses wonderful artifacts, and it's a must to visit.
Located in the former Jewish ghetto in the Middle Ages, the Holocaust Memorial in Judenplatz reflects a library with stacks of books turned inside out.
Many claim that the Romanesque church, which dates to 740 AD, is the oldest in the city. Two monks from Salzburg founded the church and dedicated it to St. Rupert.
Mozart composed his famous comic opera "The Marriage of Figaro" while living in the apartment on the first floor here at Domgasse 5 from 1784-1787.
When you sign up for a free tour of the city, local guides will lead you to the top attractions and give you great information about them. Though the service is essentially free of charge, guides live off the tips you give them. Therefore, make sure you have local cash on hand and tip them accordingly for their work at the end of the tour.
Most free walking tours last about two and a half hours and usually include a break along the way. However, if this seems a bit too much, you can certainly find city tours that focus on specific points of interest, neighborhoods and history. Alternatively, you could follow your own two feet to the sites that interest you.

Große Hofburg-Tour - die beste Wien-Tour! Wir haben eine 2-stündige Hofburg-Tour gebucht und die beste Tour unseres Lebens erlebt. Unser Führer war fantastisch, er erzählte uns viele faszinierende Geschichten. Wir haben Geheimnisse über den Palast, das Leben von Prinzessin Siss und die großartige Silbersammlung erfahren. Hofburg Führung ohne Warteschlange, Reiseleiter & Ticket inklusive. Wir waren auf vielen geführten Touren in verschiedenen Ländern, aber dies war unser Favorit. Die Hofburg selbst ist herrlich, viele schöne Prunkräume, jeder ist anders. Wenn Sie in Wien sind, ist es ein Muss!
Cornelius gave an excellent wine tasting. He was able to combine the history of Vienna with the development of the wine industry. He designed our tasting, based on our preferences. We have lived in Vienna for many years, and he was able to expand our knowledge of Austrian wine. The visit to the historic cellar was self guided.
It was an enjoyable, easy entertainment. Puzzles are easy/medium difficulty level and keep you on track without boring you. It says it will take 51 mins on the ticket but took us almost 2 hours to complete it. It all depends on how much you want to read about the places and look around.
We had an amazing time when we visited te palace and the gardens! And that was mostly because we had a great tour guide!! We dont know her name anymore but she said we could call her B or Billy. Thank you!
You see things you would never experience as normal tourist. I'm sure all guides are excellent, but ask for Mr Hofer! His own enthusiasm and profound knowledge will overwhelm you!
