Precise instructions for locating the site and meeting point with the guide. The guide was accurate, yet helpful and thorough, as much as possible in the time given.

Dive into Austria's history

Bypass the queues and delve into Vienna's imperial past on a 2-hour guided tour of Schönbrunn Palace. Your guide will bring the State Rooms to life, using the artwork and architecture to weave tales of the Habsburg dynasty, who ruled Austria for centuries. Imagine yourself walking in the footsteps of Empress Sisi as you explore her private apartments, including the Great Gallery and the Carousel Room. Envision lavish courtly events held in the State Rooms, their high ceilings and crystal chandeliers whispering stories of a bygone era.

Explore beyond the palace walls

Step outside and stroll through the French-style gardens. Dominating the landscape opposite the palace is the majestic Neptune Fountain, a display of Roman mythology sculpted in white marble. Keep an eye out for the Roman Ruin and the Obelisk, both architectural follies that showcase the playful side of Habsburg opulence. Atop a hill overlooking the palace lies the Gloriette, a triumphal arch boasting panoramic views of Vienna. Choose the tour in your choice of language, offering a personalized experience.
