Guided Tours

Fri, 29.07.2016, 18.00

We have been able to arrange some exclusive guided tours to some of the most famous and most visited museums in Vienna. The respected Kunsthistorisches Museum (Museum of Fine Arts), the Naturhistorisches Museum (Museum of Natural History) as well as the Schönbrunn Palace and the Zoo will be open especially for us, so we will see outstanding art and exotic animals right after the public has left. Generally the museums and the zoo close their gates at 18.30 at the latest - the time that we sneak into the empty hallways to see some of the most extraordinary exhibits Vienna can offer.

The entrance fee and the fee for the guided tour are included in the registration fee. Pre-registration is necessary due to limited group sizes and can be conducted during the registration process.

 

Tiergarten Schönbrunn:

The Tiergarten Schönbrunn is not only regarded as the oldest zoo in the world, but was elected “Best European Zoo” for the 4th time in a row. More than 700 species including some of the most seriously endangered ones live in the baroque ambience. The zoo is located in the park of Schönbrunn Palace and the adjacent woods with a total of 17 hectare. For already more than 10 years the cooperation with China allows the visitors to see Giant Pandas and their offspring – with baby pandas being born in summer 2007, 2010, 2013 – so perhaps we are lucky to welcome the next panda baby in summer 2016!

Min: 20 persons, Max: not limited

Schloss Schönbrunn:

Schönbrunn Palace became the center of courtly life in the 18th century with empress Maria Theresia bringing the European statesmen together at this place. With its grand baroque architecture and park, Schönbrunn became UNESCO World Heritage in the 1990s. More than 3 Million visitors were counted in the Schönbrunn Palace in 2014 – just imagine how wonderful a silent stroll through these otherwise heavy visited halls will be...
