Bus tour Vienna Woods

On this bus tour you travel outside of Vienna to the southern part of the Vienna Woods, passing the former Roman spa town of Baden and driving through the romantic Helen’s valley. Enjoy the ride in our comfortable coach while outside the beautiful landscape passes by on our way to Mayerling.

Mayerling & Abbey Heiligenkreuz

First stop on our excursion is Heiligenkreuz Abbey, which was founded as early as 1133 and is still a monastery today. During a guided tour we will show you the medieval cloister and the burial place of the Babenbergs. This dynasty is the oldest ruling dynasty in Austria and shaped the history of the country for centuries.

Afterwards, the tour continues by bus to the Hinterbrühl lake grotto. For more than 80 years, this lake grotto has offered its visitors a unique spectacle during the day. The highlight of this tour is the boat trip on the largest underground lake in Europe. But beware: In the lake grotto, temperatures are around 9°C all year round, so it's time to dress warmly!

At the end of our half-day trip to the Vienna woods we take you back to Vienna by bus. Final stop is at the Vienna State Opera.

We wanted to see the underground lake and it was closed. Some refund should have been made not just coffee and cake.
