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

Our first stop on this bus trip is the memorial chapel built on the site of the former imperial hunting lodge of Mayerling. In 1889 the tragedy of crown prince Rudolf and his mistress Baroness Vetsera took place at the lodge. Learn more about these fateful events during a tour through the memorial chapel and the adjoining showroom.

Afterwards we visit the Abbey Heiligenkreuz, which was founded in 1133 and still today, it is an active monastery. On the tour we show you the medieval cloister and the burial place of the former Babenberger rulers. This dynasty was the oldest in Austria and shaped its history throughout many centuries.
Afterwards we take you to Baden where you get a guided walking tour through the town.

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.

Unsere Erwartungen wurden übertroffen.

Great tour with the guide giving us extra backstory on the sites. The places we visited were quiet, beautiful and had interesting history to them.
As a bonus, they also took us to a drive around the small village near Vienna. It was a real treat.

Really enjoyed this tour. All the places visited were interesting and Thomas explained everything in great detail. Know a lot more history than before. The little boat trip was a nice ending. I would definitely recommend this trip to others.
