School Trips & Tours to Vienna

Widely regarded as the cultural capital of Europe, Vienna offers lots of learning opportunities for students visiting the city as part of a school trip. Having played home to the famous psychoanalyst, Sigmund Freud, for almost half a century, those studying psychology or sociology will find a Vienna school trip particularly engaging. A cultural hotspot where students can learn more about Freud and his family, alongside the tragic events of the country’s Jewish Holocaust which drove Freud to flee in 1938, Vienna provides a truly fascinating trip for any student.

Top attractions

The Sigmund Freud Museum

Having lived and worked in Vienna up until the year before his death, Sigmund Freud had great ties with the city of Vienna. The Sigmund Freud Museum, located in his old apartment at Bergasse 19, is a look into his Viennese life. Here, you can walk through his consulting room, see his famous couch, and learn all about the patients that he analysed from his apartment.

The Jewish Museum

The world’s oldest Jewish museum, founded in 1895, Vienna’s Jewish Museum works to preserve the memory of the 50,000 Austrian Jews that were murdered in the Holocaust. After being closed by the Nazi Regime in 1938, the museum lost many of its valuable objects and, although some are still missing, the museum still stands as a tribute to the city’s Jewish community and those who lost their lives.

The Palmenhaus

Located in Burggarten park, The Palmenhaus stands tall as one of the world’s prettiest greenhouses. With exotic plants and trees from all over the world, this area is great for photo-taking, and the restaurant and bar located inside also makes it a great place to grab a drink or bite to eat while admiring the view.

Hotel Sacher

The home of the Sachertorte, Austria’s world-famous dessert, Hotel Sacher is a must visit for those visiting Vienna. Although found in bakeries across the country, the best place to try this sweet treat is where it originated. Prices might be a little on the steep side, but you won’t regret trying Vienna’s signature cake.

Prater

Originally a hunting ground used by the Emperor, this amusement park is a must-visit for students in Vienna. While here, make sure to visit the Riesenrad Ferris wheel – one of the city’s most recognisable landmarks. Stop here to enjoy the rides, or for a picnic on the park.
