the pre joining instruction sent is fantastic. The historian guide, Ilse, is excellent. She is very knowledgeable, patient and very good in explaining the history of the palace in simple words.

For the price of the tour, I have expected seamless experience of the pallace history and the art pieces. Although Wolfgang gave a wonderful background to the history of the palace, the tour inside was not as smoothly curated as I would have expected.

This former working class district blends hip eateries
and avant-garde cinema with a time travel into 1950s
Vienna. Feel the district’s pulse at Margaretenhof and
Schlossquadrat. 19th-century Margaretenhof is a local
icon, yet has very non-Viennese architecture with its
brick structure and cast-iron verandas. The nearby
urban Renaissance castle of Schlossquadrat houses
several restaurants. In the summer you can sit in its
