Book now and enjoy a 5-star experience at Vienna’s most popular attraction!

Book a 2,5-hour group tour of Schonbrunn Palace and Gardens with a Professional Guide. We will take advantage of pre-booked timed tickets to skip the lines inside the palace and explore the 24 rooms of the Highlights Tour, available only to official Schonbrunn partners. This means we will see more than individual visitors who go on the Imperial Tour, which skips the beautiful Lantern Room and the Hunting Room.

Throughout the tour, our Expert Guide will point out the impressive artwork, intricate architecture, and ornate furnishings that adorn each room and share interesting facts about the lavish court life of the Habsburg dynasty, including Sisi and Maria Theresa. After leaving the palace interiors, we will venture out into the expansive gardens, which are home to numerous statues, fountains, and other architectural features like the Roman ruins and Gloriette. Only this combined tour of the palace and gardens will give you a full appreciation of the beauty, history and heritage of Schonbrunn, so book now to not miss out!
