For the price of the tour, I have expected seamless experience of the pallace history and the art pieces. Although Wolfgang gave a wonderful background to the history of the palace, the tour inside was not as smoothly curated as I would have expected.

This former working class district blends hip eateries
and avant-garde cinema with a time travel into 1950s
Vienna. Feel the district’s pulse at Margaretenhof and
Schlossquadrat. 19th-century Margaretenhof is a local
icon, yet has very non-Viennese architecture with its
brick structure and cast-iron verandas. The nearby
urban Renaissance castle of Schlossquadrat houses
