About the tour

Schönbrunn has an opponent in Vienna: the Belvedere! It was built as a summer palace for Prince Eugene of Savoy just outside the city walls of Vienna and it impresses with its dramatic baroque architecture, its fascinating history and, above all, the view! It had a WOW effect on the Prince's guests and on various artists who immortalized it in their works. The palace (and its contents) also plays an important role in a Hollywood movie. Which one you ask? You will find out on the tour! On this walk we will enjoy this view together and take a closer look at the castle and the fate of its former residents as well as its gardens and surroundings. Claudia can't wait to take you on this tour!


Meet your local guide

Claudia

Claudia was born and raised in a city that is considered one of the most beautiful in the world. In Vienna you actually stumble upon a museum, palace, theatre or coffee house on almost every corner. Karl Kraus, a famous Austrian writer, once said:” The streets of Vienna are paved with culture, the streets of other cities with asphalt.” You can often see Claudia in these very streets of Vienna, mostly with guests from all over the world, showing them the most beautiful and interesting neighbourhoods of her hometown with knowledge, enthusiasm, esprit and- her cell phone ! Sometimes she wanders the streets alone to discover new things and prepare new exciting tours for her guests. She loves the idea of virtual guiding a lot, to connect with people from so many countries and she really enjoys sharing the stories and her love for her hometown with all virtual travellers who want to feel the real spirit of this magical city.

Claudia has been guiding since Mar 2007
