A guided city tour of Vienna Schonbrunn Palace Markets (Palace entrance payable locally)
Fly to Vienna, then board our coach for the transfer to your hotel. Check in, then relax or perhaps head out to enjoy your first evening in the city if it’s not too late.
See the imposing buildings and squares of the Ringstrasse, the Hofburg Palace, and the celebrated coffee-houses of the ancient Innere Stadt on this morning's guided tour, then stop to wander Vienna's most famous Christmas markets - held in the idyllic lanes of Spittelberg and on triangular Freyung Square.After time to explore, we'll continue to the Schonbrunn Palace. Browse the stalls of the Christkindlmarkt held here, in the great courtyard.
For those arriving on a Tuesday, the guided city tour and visit to Spittelberg market will be in the afternoon and the visit to Schonbrunn Palace will be in the morning.
Spend another day exploring Vienna's Christmas markets, or join our optional full-day excursion and cross into Slovakia. Here we'll visit the Slovakian capital, Bratislava. Set beside the Danube, close to the borders of Austria and Hungary, it's a city of glorious palaces and churches where history and tradition sit side-by-side with modern cosmopolitan culture.
Bid farewell to Vienna, and return to the airport to check in for your flight home.
