Description

A half-day excursion which shows you the most beautiful sights of the southern part of the Vienna Woods. Passing the Roman City of Baden, which is famous for its thermal springs, we drive through the romantic valley Helenental to the former Mayerling hunting lodge, (visit of memorial chapel), where Crown Prince Rudolph together with Baronesse Vetsera died tragically in 1889.

In the Cistercian Abbey of Heiligenkreuz (1133), you visit the medieval cloister which houses the remains of the last Babenberger. We then pass the Holdrichsmühle and arrive at the Seegrotte.

After a boat ride on the largest subterranean lake in Europe, you leave the Vienna Woods and return to Vienna. As a great addition to this tour, we recommend the new musical "Rudolf-Affaire Mayerling" at Raimund Theater.

The guide was really great, he gave us a really good history background on the Mayerling and the underground lake. Mayerling was t...he last residence of prince Rudolf and it's also a film location of 'The Three Musketeers', so people who like film should be interested. We picked this tour because it included Abbey Heiligenkreuz, and it was a great choice.

During the bus transfer, the guide gave us an explanation of each site in English. It wasn't very long drive, so it was not v...ery tiring. Sightseeing pace was also very well paced and the content of the tour was very interesting. We went to places that are not that easy to reach by yourself, so it was a very good schedule for us.

We went on this tour after doing one that we hadn´t been lucky with. This one was great. The views were beautiful and the lake was... superb. We really enjoyed it and would recommend it. We would have loved if to had been an hour or two more, it was a bit short. more
