See what really makes Vienna tick...

Join our private Vienna walking tour to learn all about how the city has transformed itself from a swampy roman encampment to the world's top rated city for quality of life. Learn about its famous imperial history, as well as the era of 'Red Vienna' during the city's heyday in the 1910's when so many of the 20th century's most influential figures called Vienna home (think Freud, Klimt, Mahler, Trotsky, Schiele and Hitler). From gothic splendor to Baroque majesty, Vienna's innerstadt (city centre) is also an architectural gem spanning centuries of different governments and ruling elites. So why not take a wander with our certified Austria guide and art historian, Jan, and let us take you on a journey from past to present...

Vienna City Walking Tour Directions

The easiest way to get to the tour meeting point at St Stephen's Cathedral is on the U1 (red) underground/metro line and the station 'Stephansplatz'. Alternatively, if you're staying in the city center then you could just as easily walk there. Look for the massive cathedral with its gothic era steeple, you literally cannot miss it! Jan is the viking looking guy standing just outside the main entrance of the cathedral, holding a golden umbrella 🙂
