From riches to roars
For those who want to take a digestive walk through the Austrian capital after an original Wiener Schnitzel or a slice of Sacher Torte, we have just the thing. Our tour not only keeps you fit, but also offers you an interesting cross-section of Vienna's countless attractions.
Our starting point is the spectacular 18th century Belvedere Palace and Gardens. Both the view of the façade from the outside and the rooms inside allow you to dive deep into the Baroque era. Our next stop is every bit as beautiful as the palace. The Vienna State Opera is one of the most famous opera houses in the world, and rightly so. It not only wows with its performances, but also with its impressive architecture.
The Vienna Hofburg is only a 10-minute walk away. The former Habsburg residence is now the official residence of the Austrian Federal President. It houses large parts of the National Library as well as several museums, such as the Sisi Museum. Speaking of museums, culture vultures will get their money's worth here in the adjacent MuseumsQuartier. On the way to our final stop, Schönbrunn Palace, you will pass Vienna City Hall. Not only Schönbrunn Palace itself, but also the palace park with its numerous fountains, statues and monuments is definitely worth a visit. Austria's largest palace is part of the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage and has another attraction in store in its park: the oldest zoo in the world still in existence, Tiergarten Schönbrunn.
