Schoenbrunn Palace Tour, Dinner and Concert: Discover Vienna’s majestic Schonbrunn Palace as you soak up the very best of Austrian culture with a tour of the Palace, a sumptuous dinner and a classical concert. Built and added to over the centuries by successive monarchs of the Habsburg dynasty, Schonbrunn is one of Vienna’s most important cultural monuments and a truly spectacular royal residence. Experience the VIP treatment on this unforgettable evening that allows you to go back in time to the golden age of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
The Empress Maria Theresa made the palace her summer residence, Emperor Franz Joseph I would spend his days in its sprawling grounds and now you too can explore this magnificent residence.

Groups of more than ten will even enjoy an exclusive guided tour given by one of the Palace's guides, after the official opening hours.
