"Get it in writing at Schloss Schonbrunn Palace" Austria Tourist Trap Tip by Marthamaire

Austria Tourist Traps: 22 reviews and 15 photos

At the Schloss Schonbrunn Palace, there are carriages available to take you around the lovely grounds. Make sure that you get clear with the driver what the cost will be. In writing. I was verbally told that cost would be $19 for thirty minutes. When I got out of the carriage, I was told it was $90. Don’t ever get into the carriage without getting the price written down on a piece of paper. I found out later from other visitors that this ‘bait and switch’ tactic is par for the course at this place!
