From US$ 39.33
Save time while visiting one of Vienna's most popular attraction, Schonbrunn Palace (Schloss Schonbrunn), with this skip-the-line ticket and guided tour. Breeze past the often-long entry lines and proceed on a guided tour to learn much more than you would while exploring independently. Spend time listening to in-depth commentary from a guide and then get the opportunity for some free time to explore on your own.
What to Expect
Meet your guide in the afternoon in front of the Albertina Museum. Then hop on public transportation for the short ride to Schonbrunn Palace. Once you arrive, proceed directly inside, past the often-long entry lines, and start exploring on a guided tour. Hear stories of the palace's former residents and walk through the historic state rooms and the residential suite of rooms occupied by Emperor Franz Josef and wife Elisabeth. Listen to your guide's in-depth commentary on the palace's history and the politics that unfolded here.
After the tour, proceed to explore on your own; this combination of guided and free-time portions make this tour suitable for all types of travelers. Walk through the gardens, stop in the cafe for a snack, or take in the strudel show, which details how Viennese apple strudel is made.
When you're done exploring, head back to central Vienna on your own.

Schönbrunn Palace

The tour guide was well informed and made the experience super interesting. I would recommend this is a great way to get around the palace and to learn a lot about the long history of the palace and the Hapsburg dynasty.More

Afternoon Schonbrunn Tour

We had such an amazing tour the day before with the free tour of Vienna, that we booked this tour of Schonbrunn. At the beginning, it felt quite disorganized, as we were a very large group, and several tours were starting at the same time....More
