    What to Expect
    From a meeting point in Central Vienna, you’ll meet your expert guide and take off for the Vienna Woods in your coach.

    Pass the Roman city of Baden, made popular by its thermal springs, as you venture through the scenic valley of Helenental. Stop at the commemorative chapel that was formerly Mayerling, the Imperial hunting lodge. Learn from your guide how scandal rocked the royal family in 1889 when the only son of Emperor Franz Joseph, Crown Prince Rudolph, made a suicide pact with his mistress Baronesse Vetsera and both were found dead inside the lodge.

    Continue to the Cistercian Abbey of Heiligenkreuz, dating back to 1133, and the oldest continuously occupied Cistercian monastery in the world. Explore the medieval cloister that houses the remains of the last member of the noble Babenberger family.

    Your half-day tour will conclude with transportation back to Vienna, passing the Liechtenstein Castle on the way.
