    Vienna - Schönbrunn Palace and Strudel Show

    Your tour guide will be ready at the hotel lobby for transfer to a guided tour in Schönbrunn Palace. The tour will allow you to feel the breath of the era of the great empire. Schönbrunn Palace, which became the summer residence of the Habsburg imperial court, belongs to the most significant palace and park ensembles in Europe. Its premises are impressive: a 43-meter (141 ft.) large gallery with luxurious frescoes on the ceiling, million porcelain and rich rooms, tapestry, and mirror salons. - You will visit 40 rooms, among which are the chambers of the most famous Austrian couple - Franz Joseph and Elizabeth, "mother-in-law of all Europe" -Maria Theresa and her glorious wife. Not only did Habsburg's family reside in the palace, but Napoleon did not apply to be noted in it, and his son ended his days here and, in honor of the Russian Tsarevich, arranged a formal dinner. After exploring the palace's interiors, a walk through the Palace Park will bring you true pleasure. UNESCO included the entire historic palace and park ensemble in the world heritage list. Luxurious emerald green lawns, neatly trimmed bushes, a zoo, fountains, the Glorietta indoor gallery on a hill, the Palm Pavilion, Roman ruins, the Egyptian obelisk, the Labyrinth Garden, the Crown Prince's Garden, and the Japanese Garden are all Schönbrunn.

    Then, stop for the Strudel show, where you will have coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and apple strudel)—after lunch at a traditional Austrian restaurant, visit Hofburg Palace Imperial Treasury. Do you want to be that chosen lucky one who can see the mysterious inscription on the bowl, which from time immemorial has been wrapped in a dense fog of mysticism and was considered in ancient times the legendary Holy Grail Chalice? Why were "unicorn horns" used for the scepter hilt? And with what exhibit were empires built? With the values filled with the Treasury of the Habsburg dynasty, our acquaintance will pass, plunging into history, secrets, and symbolism of a thousand years ago. Here are the outstanding monuments of jewelry of past centuries. These vast reserves include crowns, scepters, mantles with an excess of gold, relics and jewelry, baptismal fonts, and other utensils. Imperial kinds are shown here, including the imperial crown, the sacred spear, the imperial cross, the wand, the power, and the coronation sword. You will find out where they are supposed to be stored "until the Holy Roman Empire of the German nation is reborn" and why the evil figure of Adolf Hitler was so attracted to the holy spear. The magnificent collection of Vienna's Hofburg Palace is today the largest in Europe and the most important from an artistic and historical collection of royal regalia, jewels, and vestments.

    The late afternoon is leisure time and overnight at the hotel.
