Your day trip to Vienna begins in Prague. Travel south by comfortable coach through the stunning landscapes of Bohemia and Moravia. After a three to four hour drive along the Danube, the longest river in Europe, you arrive in Vienna, home of Sigmund Freud.
Vienna, seat of the Habsburg Empire during the XNUMXth century, is a magnificent baroque and medieval city, and its historic center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
With your guide, walk along the famous Ringstrasse, this magnificent boulevard that Emperor Franz Joseph had built in the 1880s, on the site of the demolished city walls. Along the way, see the majestic buildings, palaces, and museums of Vienna, including Schwarzenberg Square, the State Opera, Neue Burg (part of Hofburg Palace), the Parliament Building, and the History Museum. Pass by beautiful public gardens and parks, enjoy panoramic views of the city, and listen as your guide explains the historical significance of each site.
Next, head to the southern border of Vienna, where you can see Schönbrunn (the former summer residence of the Imperial family) and its stunning reservoir. After exploring the gardens and castle on your own, return by bus to the city center for a tour of Hofburg, Vienna's former imperial residence. Then, take a guided tour of St. Stephen's Cathedral.
After the guided tour, enjoy free time for lunch or window shopping, before the relaxing drive back to Prague.
