    Description

    Few cities can boast the Imperial grandeur of Vienna. The heart and historical centre of the city, the Ringstrasse, houses imposing buildings and monuments such as the Rathaus (town hall), the Burgtheater, the University, the Parliament and the State Opera House. In the Hofburg you will tour the Imperial Apartments and the Treasury housing the Crown Jewels of the Habsburgs. A visit will be made to Schonbrunn Palace, the former imperial hunting grounds with a tour of the interior, designed to eclipse Versailles, and entrance to the gardens and other attractions. You will also be treated to a performance of The Spanish Riding School, an unforgettable experience of precision movements of magnificent Lipizzaner stallions in perfect harmony with music. We include an evening at a traditional Viennese Heurigen (wine tavern) and a gala dinner where you will experience a musical journey in the Kursalon, one of Viennas most beautiful concert venues, where Johann Strauss himself conducted the first concert in 1868.
