Overview
Spend less time waiting and more time sightseeing with this skip-the-line Schönbrunn Palace and Vienna tour. After bypassing the general admission line, you’ll discover the highlights of the palace while hearing tales of the Habsburg monarchs from a guide. The experience also includes a drive-by tour of the Ringstrasse, so you’ll see several of Vienna’s best-known sights in just one trip.
What to Expect
Board your climate-controlled coach in Vienna, and start your journey through the city. As you gaze out of the window, you’ll listen to your guide’s commentary to learn about the striking architecture of the Ringstrasse boulevard.

Hear about the legendary Opera Ball on your way past the Vienna State Opera and admire the neoclassical facades of the Austrian Parliament before the commanding sight of Hofburg Palace, birthplace of Marie Antoinette, captures your attention.

Leaving your transport behind, you’ll step out on foot to see Schönbrunn Palace. Use your skip-the-line ticket to avoid the often-long general entry line and then see the sights and discover the history of the UNESCO World Heritage Site on a guided tour. Explore the extensive gardens on your own or relax at the café with a drink or apple strudel (apfelstrudel) (own expense).

The tour ends at its starting point.

Not recommended

The Vienna historical overview was rushed, the guide simply stated the buildings that we were passing by and offered extremely brief and uninteresting facts about them. The Schonbrunn Palace was worse, as the guide seemed in a hurry and we barely spent time in a...More

Not worth it! Don’t go for this tour

Guide just went through the motion to explain in a robotic manner , rushes through the palace ... not worth it at all . Tour was short n not worth the money . City tour was just pointing out this and that and that’s it!More
