    Entertaining, informative, like a catch guide through the Sisi Museum and the Imperial Apartments. It is definitely worth booking tickets in advance, as there are e.g. For example, there are long waiting times at the museums on this extra-long weekend and there are hardly any opportunities to get in somewhere spontaneously.

    Excellent! :-) A good way to create lasting memories of your visit to Vienna. Not too long, (other options also possible) everything worth knowing to be able to experience your own or other activities on this day in Vienna. Excellent! ;-) From here, all the sights of the city center can be easily reached on foot (approx. 10 minutes, for example, the Natural History Museum, Art Museum, a little further approx. 15-20 minutes on foot to Belvedere Castle). The Ferris wheel and Schönbrunn Palace (large complex approx. 1 day, depending on how and what you want to see) are also easy to reach by subway. Have fun! :-)

    We were lucky enough to be alone that day and had a VIP tour, so to speak. On this day we learned a lot and in detail about the history, mainly of course about the time of Sissi and Franz. Our guide was very knowledgeable and guided us through the time very appealingly, it couldn't have been better. Thank you very much for that.
