Your walking tour will begin at our meeting point in front of the Albertina museum, next to the State Opera House (Staatsoper). From there we’ll take the subway and after a short ride we will arrive at the spectacular imperial palace. You will be given an introduction to the history of the Schönbrunn Palace, as well as to its most important residents. Finally our guide will lead you through the historic state-rooms on the so-called “Highlight Tour” of the palace.
After our inside Schönbrunn tour ends, don’t miss the opportunity to walk the beautiful gardens and catch a glimpse of the Gloriette, an arch on top of a hill overlooking Vienna’s forests, have a coffee or even visit the famous “Strudelshow”, where you can experience how a traditional Viennese apple strudel is prepared. Or take the chance to visit the oldest Zoo in the world on the grounds of the palace – the “Tiergarten Schönbrunn”. Together with your licensed guide, you’ll discover the opulent chambers, decorated with Baroque art and furniture, and have time to discover the palace’s beautiful gardens.
This activity includes:
- Live Guide
- Ticket to Schönbrunn Palace
- Only small groups - 25 people
Albertinaplatz 1, 1010 Wien
The tour starts at 2.30 pm at our meeting point in front of Albertina building right next to the fountain (street level, not upstairs at the museum´s entrance). Just look for the green umbrella!
As the palace administration assigns us an exact time slot to enter the palace, we have to leave the meeting point on time! That´s why we have to ask you for absolute punctuality – please be there 15 minutes before tour start ideally! If you don´t make it on time we unfortunately have to leave without you, otherwise it would be a very uncomfortable situation for our other guests and also for the guide, who has to make sure to reach the palace on time.
From the meeting point you will travel by subway to the palace accompanied by your guide. Please note that it´s not possible to meet our guide at the palace. The castle and the gardens are getting very crowded, especially in high season, so it would be too risky that you miss each other.
Things to note
