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

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
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.
  • 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.

We liked the palace and the grounds but the tour group was too large. The palace is a popular tourist attraction and very crowded. Our group was a full double decker bus, may be 50 or more people. Even though they broke us in two groups, with the crowded place, it was too hard
