Tour description provided by Viator

Explore the house and gardens of the jewel in Vienna’s crown on this private half-day Schönbrunn Palace tour. Choose a morning or afternoon tour, then follow a private guide through UNESCO–listed Schönbrunn Palace’s beautiful gardens. Admire sweeping views from the Gloriette, then head inside — where the opulent Hall of Ceremonies, the Porcelain Room, the Millions Room, and the Millions Chamber await. Along the way, admire the palace’s beautiful interior and gain insight into the House of Habsburg — once one of Europe’s most powerful monarchies.
Choose a 9:30am or 2pm tour, then meet your private guide outside UNESCO World Heritage–listed Schönbrunn Palace and purchase your entry tickets (own expense). During your 3-hour tour, stroll through the magnificent formal gardens and admire the baroque landscaping for which they’re famous. Wander among the flowerbeds and visit the Gloriette — a triumphal arch set on the hilltop with panoramic views over Vienna’s woods. Afterward, step inside the palace and explore the Franz-Joseph and Elisabeth Apartments with your private guide. Walk through the lavish rooms and gain insight into life here during the early 19th century. Visit the Hall of Ceremonies, the Porcelain Room, the Millions Room, and the Millions Chamber. Along the way, marvel at the palace’s impressive interiors. When your guided visit comes to an end, step out of the Schönbrunn Palace complex to conclude your private tour.
