Beautiful Palace

A fabulous opulent palace well worth seeing. Audio tour was informative, but my headset didn't work and had to share my husbands. Dinner in the restaurant was lovely, but set menu and no choices. Bit of a faf collecting tickets - why they can't be all in one place instead of spread out so much is maddening and a long walk in between each.

The tour and dinner were good. Disappointed with set up for music. Seemed too touristy for me. No program. Did not announce music. Did not enjoy the dancers. Distracted from music
Excelent experience

The castle was fantastic to visit, the 3 course dinner was just OK, but the Mozart/Strauss concert was wonderful!
Palace Tour

Great evening!! Allow yourself 3-4 hours before dinner to tour palace, zoo, and gorgeous gardens. The place you pick up tickets is far from the main gate just keep walking.

The palace and show were wonderful. I would have given this 5 stars if the dinner was better but overall a great value. The show was TOP NOTCH!
Magical evening in Vienna
, Sep 2019
The Schönbrunn Palace was a beautiful location. Was lovely to walk around the palace and garden and enjoy the evening before the wonderful concert. Just before we we had dinner which was quite nice for a set menu. We were able to pick decent wines to accompany and then we were led to the concert hall where the show did not disappoint. The orchestra, singers and dancers really brought the wonderful music to life and made for a magical evening In Vienna. Recommend this tour for sure.
5 stars for Schoenbrunn and concert, skip the dinner!
, Jul 2019
Visiting Schoenbrunn is a must if you are in Vienna. I booked the tour with dinner and concert because I didn’t have much time and wanted to get a “taste” of everything in a few hours. The tour of the palace was fantastic and the concert great! The dinner wasn’t too bad but it was just not what I expected.
Skip the dinner. Enjoy the show
, Jul 2019
The palace is beautiful, the grounds are exceptional and the concert was unforgettable. The dinner certainly was not. Meat was rather HARD to chew and just not a really tasty meal. Service was just ok I would skip it and do only the concert
Excellent tour
, Jul 2019
We really enjoyed the opportunity to see the Palace in our own time. The dinner was delicious and presented and served really well. The concert was also excellent. A great tour. Give yourself plenty of time to visit the gardens as they are very big and worth spending lots of time in them.
A 60 year wait
, Jun 2019
Having spent a day in the palace grounds on a 3 week school holiday staying outside the city 60 years ago, I always promised to come back. This day was even more magical than the first, to still be able to climb the stairs in the Gloriette was a dream, although I didn’t run across the top this time. The dinner and concert were all a bonus as was the wonderful palace. With over 50 12 year olds running about we were not allowed inside then but my Husband and I made up for it this time.
