  • Vienna Woods and Mayerling Half-Day Tour from Vienna

    1. Vienna Woods and Mayerling Half-Day Tour from Vienna

    Escape the bustle of Vienna on a half-day tour to the southern part of the Vienna Woods, on the city’s outskirts. Departing from a central city location, ride past the Roman city of Baden, famous for its hot springs, and head for the romantic Helenental Valley. Stop at the former hunting lodge of Mayerling and learn from your friendly expert tour guide all about how the lives of Crown Prince Rudolf and Baroness Vetsera came to a tragic end in 1889. Next, discover the 12th-century Cistercian Heiligenkreuz Abbey and visit the medieval cloister and tomb of the last Babenberger.

    Great to get out of the city and see some of the surrounding countryside on a short break to Vienna. Guide was excellent and spoke English and Spanish fluently for the small number of guests in our party. Would have liked to spend a wee bit more time in Mayerling as there was a lot to read! Unfortunately, it started snowing when we were in Baden and our visit was cut shorter than usual as we were all frozen stiff, couldn’t take as many photos as I wanted due to my phone switching itself off with the cold. A young Korean exchange student in our party was fascinated by the snow, as she’d never seen it before! Definitely worth a visit, but perhaps in warmer month than February.

The Abbey was wonderful a feeling of great fraternity and calm. Mayeling was a very sad place no birds singing although it was a sunny day. Tour manager was excellent and travel through the woods was wonderful.

Excellent guide very knowledgable accommodated weather

Except for knowing exactly where to meet, the tour was excellent. Loved the Second monastery. Changed itinerary because of weather, and still was excellent. Would recommend.

We had a very enjoyable trip. The guide was excellent and gave us loads of information about all the sites we visited. Would thoroughly recommend!

our guide was very informative an dthe tour itself was interesting and enjoyable. Archictecture and building took you back hunderds of years
