Why not leave the city behind for one day and join me on this fascinating excursion!
We will start out at your hotel, where I will come to pick you up with a professional driver and car.
Our first stop will be the medival Liechtenstein Castle.
You will get a private introduction in the medival lifestyle of Count Liechtenstein and his family.
We move on to the true highlight of the tour, Heiligenkreuz Abbay. Also created in the Middle Ages, it is a working Cistercian cloister with a fantastic medival church.
If you are truly interested in Habsburg history we will then move onto the Karmel Mayerling, where the big tragedy happened. Here crown prince Rudolph committed suicide, casting terrible shadows on the already weak Danube monarchy.
We can now enjoy a truly scenic ride through the “Helenental”-Valley and will arrive in the charming town of Gumpoldskirchen, where you can sample a glass of Austrian white wine!
For the foodies amongst you we can have lunch at Freigut Thallern – located in a scenic vinery!

Jewish history of Vienna is a very delicate topic that many tour guides try to avoid. Susanne does a wonderful job in highlighting this important part of Vienna’s past! She was very knowledgeable and thoughtful. I was visiting Vienna with my young daughter and my goal was to share the history of the city with her while highlighting the impact the Jewish community has made on it over many centuries. Susanne was able to accomplish this goal with excellence. We are very grateful for such wonderful experience

BEST DAY of our trip! It started with a scenic drive outside of the city on our way to the picturesque Wachau Valley. After an apricot danish in the town of Krems we saw several other quaint towns, and miles of miles of vineyards on our way to our lunchtime cruise down the Danube River and then ended up in the town of Melk and a tour of the Melk Abbey. Susanne planned a simply perfect day – one we won’t forget for quite some time! This was a 10 star tour!
