Overview

Romantic architecture, Imperial-era landmarks, and delicious coffeehouses and cake shops make Vienna a gem to visit any time of the year. One of the best ways to discover the city’s delights is on a Big Bus that allows you to explore at your own pace. Enjoy your choice between classic, premium, and deluxe ticket options, offering upgrades such as a Danube river cruise and panoramic night tour by bus.

Two routes, 16 stops on the red and 9 stops on the blue route with 1.5-hour full-loop durations, can be used with your ticket. For those who want to sit back and relax, stay on board for the full duration, listening to the entertaining audio commentary as you go. If you want to explore Vienna on foot, hop on and off wherever, and whenever, you like. Buses for the Red Route run in every 20- 30 minutes from 9:30am and the Schönbrunn Blue Route is available every 30 minutes from 9:30am.

Your ticket is valid for one or two days (depending on option selected) from the time of first use, and you can use it as many times as you like during that time period. Travel to the Imperial Palace (Hofburg) to see the former home of the powerful Habsburg dynasty, or amble around Burggarten Court Garden to see monuments, statues and sculptures. Have your camera on hand to capture sights of St Stephen’s Cathedral (Stephansdom) in all its Romanesque glory, and hop off near the must-visit sites of Schönbrunn Palace, Maria-Theresien-Platz, Vienna State Opera and more.

If you prefer only to do the night tours, you can also book it separately! You can expect informative and entertaining live commentaries in English from a Tour Guide. The Tour lasts around 1h and is no Hop-on Hop-off Tour! Within this tour you will explore Vienna when dusk falls. You will go along the famous Ring Street, to the Prater, the Blue Danube and back to Stop 1 "Opera"
