Skip-the-Line Schonbrunn Palace Guided Tour and Vienna Historical City Tour

Select Date and Travellers
US$ 60.65
2 travellers
Experience the best of Vienna, including the Schönbrunn Palace, on this 3.5-hour city highlights coach tour. Drive along the famous Ringstrasse boulevard to admire buildings such as the Vienna State Opera, City Hall and Hofburg Palace, once home to Marie Antoinette. Then, tour the extravagant staterooms of the Schönbrunn, the summer residence of the Habsburg monarchs, and get free time to stroll its gardens or relax at the café.
  • Maximize your time at Schönbrunn Palace with a skip-the-line entry ticket
  • Discover the palace highlights quickly with the help of a guide
  • A convenient experience with round-trip transport from central Vienna
  • Time your palace visit with a Ringstrasse tour to see its showpiece sights
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. 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.
