What people are saying about Vienna

Everything there was amazing even if it was a rainy morning and we couldn't enjoy the garden tour. The architecture, the history of the Schonbrunn palace and the astonishing beauty you see in every corner. Our guide, Antonia, was very knowledgeable of the place's history and explained everything pretty well. I highly recommend you take the guided tour it's totally worth it. P.S. Don't skip the Gloriette, it's a must see.

The reconceptualisation of the museum is very good. I trained in psychoanalysis, so it was a treat to visit Freud's home in Vienna, and to learn more about him and his family in context. My partner, who wasn't trained in psychoanalysis (but has had to endure me prattling on for many a year) also enjoyed the experience, too.

The guide Stefan shared all his knowledge, in a charming way, for more than two hours. We learned new interesting stories about the history of Habsburg dynasty while visiting the Schonbrunn palace. I spent three days in Vienna and this was the most interesting experience there.

Great experience. It was totally worth the visit. I highly recommend you book your tickets online and plan your visit earlier than 12 pm.

Easy and clear. Beautiful facility with some great art.
