On this tour you can see the former imperial winter- and summer residences of the Habsburg, which are both making part of the UNESCO declared World Heritage Site Vienna.
First we will walk thru the courtyards of The Hofburg Palace. After that we will take the subway to get into The Schönbrunn Palace, where we are going to visit Austria's number one touristic attraction, the former summer residence of the Habsburg dynasty.


I am going to meet you in your hotel.
According to the location of your residence we start the tour in the city OR in Schönbrunn, which means we are going to walk in direction of The Hofburg Palace OR catch the subway in direction of The Schönbrunn Palace.
At both of the former imperial palaces we will first walk along the wings and courtyards, visiting the buildings from outside and after it you can also enjoy my guided tour inside of the palaces in the following parts:
1) In THe Hofburg: The Former Imperial Treasury OR the morning exercise of The Spanish Riding School
2) In Schönbrunn: The Highlight Tour OR The Strudel Show
The tour ends in down town at a typical Viennese coffee house near by The Opera (or at your hotel, if you wish so)

A Recent Review of this tour

Ursula was marvelous. She tailored the tour to our needs. We spent all the time at the Schoenberg and skipped the Hofburg. She took total care of us. She is very knowledgeable and has more pics on her iPad. She is knowledgeable, kink, caring, flexible, and fun.
