Top free visits & excursions in Vienna

While it is true that most countries in Europe will be fairly affordable to visit on a school trip, finding free activities to do with your students is the best way of keeping costs down and making it enjoyable for everyone. Luckily, Vienna has an abundance of galleries, cathedrals and parks for you and your students to visit.

Forming the centrepiece of Rathausplatz and its gardens, the town hall is undoubtedly the most imposing edifice on the Ringstrasse, flanked by the University to the north, the Parliament to the south and the Theatre opposite. Students can take a free guided tour every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 1 pm. The tours are in German however free audio guides are available in English, French, Italian, and Spanish.

For students of Art with an interest for contemporary, a visit to the MUSA (Museum Start Gallery Artothek) has one of the largest collections of contemporary art in Austria. Admission is free with also free visits to the following museums:
○ District Museum Inner City (Bezirksmuseen)
○ Georg Kargl Fine Arts
○ Money Museum (Geldmuseum)

December is a great time to visit Vienna which has a wonderful atmosphere at this time of the year. The lovingly designed and decorated market stalls located along the many narrow alleyways offer beautiful Christmas gifts while the smells of seasonal treats fill the air.

 All staff at EST have been warm, professional and very quick to respond to queries. When planning a school trip this is of vital importance and your staff continue to impress with their positivity and customer service.
