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.

SKIP THIS TOUR, NOT WORTH THE TIME OR MONEY!

The description of the tour is misleading. I booked the English speaking tour. It was in English, but also in Spanish. This meant that half of the tour was spent with the guide saying the same thing twice in 2 different languages. Pretty much a...More

Nice tour but too short time for Schönbrunn gardens

We booked the tour few days before the visit. The guide ( a lady) was very knowledgeable and we found out a lot of details about Viena and about Schönbrunn. The weather was perfect and we decided to visit the gardens a little longer. Original...More

Unfriendly tourist guide

I joined this skip-the-like Schonbrunn Palace tour with my two teenage children. The first part of the tour was ok. When we arrived at the palace, the tourist guide told us about putting our backpacks at the reception. I was carrying a small backpack so...More
