  • Tour code: 3773PALDINCON
Treat yourself to a Schönbrunn Palace experience with a combination ticket that includes an audio tour, dinner and classical concert. The UNESCO-listed icon resonates with history and its interiors are stunning; for the former abode of a European dynasty, you’d expect nothing less. This experience lets you explore it at your own pace before a 3-course, candlelit dinner of traditional Austrian fare. Finish on a high note in the historical palace Orangery, and listen to the works of Mozart and Bach, performed by a Schönbrunn Palace Orchestra ensemble.

Head inside Schönbrunn Palace with your entrance ticket, and start your evening with a 1-hour self-guided audio tour. As the former summer residence of the powerful Habsburg dynasty, Schönbrunn is considered by many as one of Europe’s most beautiful baroque palaces. Explore the UNESCO-listed site from the west wing, with the apartments of Emperor Franz Joseph and his wife Elizabeth, through to the State Wing. Continue to the guest apartments, with their richly ornate décor, and then take a turn around the Franz Karl Apartments, which were once occupied by the emperor’s parents.

With your audio tour over, head inside the Ehrenhof restaurant, adjacent to the main palace entrance. Or, in the summer months (from May to September), take a seat outside at a table on the garden terrace. Whatever the location, a candlelit 3-course Austrian meal awaits. Read the Itinerary for a sample menu.

After dinner, make your way to the palace Orangery for your classical music concert. In the historical setting, take your seat in your chosen ticket category: VIP, A, B and C, referring to the front, middle and rear of the auditorium respectively.

Then, sit back and listen to an ensemble from the Schönbrunn Palace Orchestra perform overtures and operatic arias by Mozart and Strauss. Examples of the pieces played include “Le Nozze di Figaro,” “Don Giovanni,” “Radetzkymarsch” and more. The ensemble is accompanied by a soprano and baritone as well as two ballet dancers. If you chose to book a VIP or category A seat, your ticket includes a glass of fizz during the intermission.

Your experience ends when the concert finishes, in the late evening.

The tours are excellent, however I was disappointed that I received no correspondence regarding 10 per cent discount. 5 stars
