Half Day Historical

Few cities can claim a reputation for luxury to match that of Vienna. Find out why on this 4 hour tour. Bounded on the north by the Danube River, the southern edge of central Vienna is defined by a sweeping avenue lined with a seemingly unending sequence of monumental architecture. At the west end is a forested park framed by the Rathaus, or city hall, and the legendary Burgtheater, where the Imperial court watched the debut of works by Mozart, Beethoven, and others. Next is the Volksgarten, a refreshing green expanse between the Austrian Parliament building and the Hofburg Palace, home to Austria’s rulers since the 13th century, from dukes to presidents. The twin Museums of Fine Arts and Natural History frame the way from the palace to the modern Museumsquartier. After this parade of past Imperial grandeur, you will hardly expect it to be topped. The final stop however, Schonbrunn Palace, will do just that. The high Baroque complex includes over 1,400 rooms, acres of gardens, and even the world’s oldest zoo.
