Schönbrunn Palace

Schönbrunn Palace was the imperial summer residence of the Habsburg family up until the end of the monarchy in 1918. Along with its gardens, it is considered one of the best-preserved baroque sites in Europe and thus part of the UNESCO world heritage since 1996.


Today, Schönbrunn Palace is one of the most visited sites in Austria. The entrance to the extensive baroque garden area is free for the public. Thanks to its coffeehouses inside, it serves as a local recreation area for the Viennese population. 

Additionally, one of the oldest remaining zoos in Europe is located inside the Schönbrunn Gardens. A fun attraction, not only for children.

Single ticket for adults is € 18,-

Art History

According to the international Times Magazine ranking, The Museum of Fine Arts in Vienna holds number seven and thus a higher score than for example the London National Gallery or the Louvre in Paris.


The museum offers an impressive and unique range of paintings and other eminent works of art from every era of western art history. The art gallery places particular emphasis on the historic development from the late Renaissance to the baroque era, containing works from many old masters such as Jan van Eyck, Titian, Peter Paul Rubens, Albrecht Dürer, Jan Vermeer, Diego Velazquez, Benvenuto Cellini, Caravaggio, and many more. 


The stairwell is particularly beautiful and magnificent as it was constructed during the era of the Ringstraße. To this very day, the ceiling painting by Gustav Klimt knows how to leave guests stunned.


Besides the art gallery, the museum displays an Egyptian Exhibition and the Chamber of Art and Wonders, a cabinet of rarities and curiosities from the collections of the imperial family.


Single ticket € 16,-

Hofburg - Sisimusem

Hofburg - Sisi Museum

The imperial apartment in Vienna is where Emperor Francis Joseph and his wife Sisi (Empress Elisabeth) lived early on. Using numerous personal items, the museum portrays the restless relationship between the two and tries to deconstruct the truth and the myth of the iconic figure empress Elisabeth. 


Underneath the imperial apartments, you’ll find the Imperial Silver Collection. Valuable porcelain, centerpieces, and glittering silverware that once belonged to the imperial court are exhibited there.

Natural History Museum

The Natural History Museum in Vienna is undoubtedly one of the most impressive of its kind. It is not only a museum with more than 30 million objects but at the same time a renowned research institute. Around 60 scientists from human-, earth- and bioscience fields conduct systematic basic research.

Do not miss out on the biggest and oldest collection of meteorites in the world, the digital planetarium, or the remains of gigantic and lifelike prehistoric animals. Lastly, we highly suggest you explore one of the most precious exhibits of the collection, and one of the oldest findings on Austrian ground: the 30 000-year-old “Venus of Willendorf”.


Single ticket € 12,-

St. Stephens

For more than 800 years, St. Stephens marks the cityscape of Vienna through its distinctiveness. Being the landmark of the city, it has survived the good, as well as the turbulent times. Its significance reaches far beyond the religious.

Over the centuries, the cathedral has experienced numerous extensions and construction phases in multiple architectural eras, which the visitor can recognize. Today, it is an iconic gothic structure and a must for every visitor to Vienna.


The cathedral can be visited all year for free.




National Library

The National Library is not only Austria’s biggest library counting 10,9 million works, but additionally, it serves as national memory. It is a popular institution among researchers and students likewise.


The State Hall is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful library halls in the world. A real pearl of baroque architecture. Splendid frescoes from baroque artist Daniel Gran, a magnificent dome, and two Venetian baroque globes are waiting to be discovered.

Did you know that the private collection of prince Eugene is an integral part of the National Library? Well, that’s for sure another reason for a visit.


Single ticket € 8,-


Imperial Treasury

The Imperial Treasury offers a fascinating journey through one thousand years of western European history.

The most important treasure of the Middle Ages can be found here: the coronation insignia of the Holy Romain Empire, Vienna being its capital for a long time. Find as well the imperial crown of the emperor of Austria, the Burgundian treasure from the 15th century, and the treasure of the Order of the Golden Fleece (the Habsburg dynastic order).

On the other hand, the Ecclesiastical Treasury focuses more on the history of piety and religiosity of the House Habsburg. What was the religious cult-like, back in the day and how was it affected by folk religiosity and the Counter-Reformation?

Single ticket € 14,-

Imperial Crypt


1 h

It was the beginning of the 17th century when empress Anna ordered to have a Capuchin monastery and crypt built in Vienna. That crypt quickly became Habsburg’s most significant royal pantheon.


149 members of the family lay buried inside that crypt, among them twelve emperors and nineteen empresses. In this crypt, the tangibility of history is the strongest.


Find out about the iconography of the coffins and their representative role, about the mysterious person that is buried without being a member of the Habsburgs, and a protestant princess who was granted a burial without being catholic. Why is the former emperor of Mexico buried here? Meet the Lion of Aspern and make your courtesy call on empress Sisi and emperor Francis-Joseph.
