Enjoy this opportunity to see Vienna, the principal seat of government for one of the most important imperial families in European history.
Don't miss this special opportunity to visit Vienna, a city that was once the imperial and cultural centre of Europe as well as the seat of the Habsburg Empire during the 18th century. Traveling toward the southern border of the Czech Republic, arrive at the edge of Vienna after approximately 3 to 4 hours of travel through the picturesque landscape of Bohemia and Moravia. Passing through the city is Europe's largest river, the Danube.
The bus will travel around the famous Ringstrasse, a magnificent boulevard which Franz Joseph I built in the 1880's on the site of demolished city walls. On the way, you will see splendid, majestic buildings including palaces, museums, hotels, and parks with statues of important personalities.
Next we travel to Vienna's southern edge where you can view Schönbrunn (the former summer residence of the imperial family) and its beautiful reservoir. After the tour of the gardens and the Schönbrunn Chateau (own expense) we will return by bus to the centre of the city for a walking tour through Hofburg (own expense), the Habsburg's winter residence. Then we will travel to Saint Stephen's Cathedral.
After your guided tour, enjoy free time for lunch or shopping. At the end of this free time, meet in front of Saint Stephens's Cathedral to board the bus for the return trip to Prague.
Well worth the long day. Saw the main sights and tour of Schonbrun with couple of hours for shopping. If you only have a day this trip is a must.
