Winterthur welcomes visitors traveling in groups by offering a variety of tour options and discounted rates for groups of 15 or more. Our Visitor Service Assistants will be happy to work with you to determine your group’s needs and suggest a suitable itinerary.
A minimum of 15 visitors are required per group to receive the General Admission group rate of $17.
Complimentary admission is available for tour bus drivers and group leaders (with 15 paid admissions, your group will receive two complimentary tickets).
General Admission tickets include: the Winterthur Garden, narrated garden tram tour*, Galleries (including special exhibitions), the Campbell Collection of Soup Tureens, and a 45-minute introductory house tour‡. Yuletide at Winterthur includes all of the above, except that a one-hour Yuletide house tour replaces the Introductory Tour.
*Tickets include a narrated tour of the Winterthur Garden. The Garden Tram runs March through December, weather permitting. Trams are not reserved exclusively for tour groups, but are shared with the general public. While we try to accommodate all requested time slots for garden tram tours, the trams are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Please contact the Winterthur Information and Tours Office if you have questions or would like to find out more about arranging house and garden tours during non-peak times.
‡ House tours are not available November 9–20, 2015, as we prepare for the Yuletide Tour, which opens November 21, 2015.
No deposit is required. Payment in full is due one (1) week prior to tour date. Group Tours are available by advance reservation only. Winterthur suggests reserving your tour at least 4–6 weeks in advance of your desired tour date. Reserve your tour.
