Description

Enjoy a day discovering Schönbrunn Palace with an audio guide then attend a classical concert within the grounds!

The Schönbrunn Palace is one of Austria's major historical landmarks, and was classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996. It is also famous for being the summer residence of the country's emperors and empresses in the 17th century!

VIsit the castle at your own pace with your multilingual audio guide. Discover the Grand Gallery, which used to host receptions for official banquets; the Vieux-Laque Room with its walls adorned in Chinese print; the china cabinet where Marie-Thérèse of Austria hosted meetings with her chancellor; or even the largest of the Rosa Rooms, renowned for its gold-framed portraits of the imperial family.

In the evening, you will enjoy a concert by the Palace's traditional orchestra in the Palace Orangery. This room has been perfectly conserved from when it was used to host receptions and other celebrations organized by the Imperial Family. In this exceptional setting, enjoy a grand performance with classical music, ballet dancers and singers!
