8h-Sightseeing of all the Must See Sites


This tour is the perfect introduction into Vienna's history and culture! And its done in the least expensive way: by foot and by public transport.

I will come and pick you up at your hotel and we will set out for a lovely city walk. We will cover all the important sights in the city, have a coffee break and then explore the very chic palace and art museum of Albertina.

In the afternoon we will pass the Secessionist Building, the Naschmarkt (Farmers Market) and then board the subway for 10 minutes and arrive at Schönbrunn Castle.

We will explore the castle with its fatastic gardens, talk about baroque architecture and go see the castle from within. I will give you the Grand tour inside the palace and you will learn everything about the Habsburg Family that ruled Austria for 600 years.

After our visit we will take the tram back to the city center, where I will accompany you to your hotel or drop you off at St. Stephan's Cathedral or the Opera.

Looking forward to meeting you!

A Recent Review of this tour

Suzanne is very personable and knowledgeable of the art and history of Vienna. We thoroughly enjoyed her tour and got to know her as a person just as she got to know us. My wife travels with a wheelchair And Suzanne was extremely knowledgeable and helpful in getting us from place to place. She is one of the best tour guide we have ever had. I highly recommend her for touring in Vienna
