No inside visits intended. Variations of this itinerary are possible upon agreement. 

If you have more time and would like to see also the Belvedere Palace from outside, I suggest my Half Day Walking Tour Vienna. The Belvedere Palace was the summer residence of Prince Eugene of Savoy. From the park there is a beautiful view over the city.

Individual tourists, who like it the comfortable way or those who have difficulties walking might like my Private City Tour Vienna by minivan.

Private City Tour, additional information…

The Ringstrasse (ring road) was built in the second half of the 19th century instead of the old city walls. Emperor Franz Joseph had the idea to construct a wide and elegant boulevard like the boulevards in Paris. Majestic public buildings and magnificent city palaces were to adorn the street. The Vienna Ringstrasse is one of the most beautiful streets in Europe.

Hofburg was the imperial residence of the Habsburgs. It is a complex of buildings from different periods of time. Today the Federal President of the Republic of Austria works in the Leopoldine wing. The Spanish Riding School is also located there. You can observe the white Lipizzaners in their stables.
