Best of Vienna Walking Tour
Discover Vienna's historic old town on a fun and comprehensive walking tour with me. We leave the big tour groups behind and explore the city in our own small team. Let's make it interactive - there are no dumb questions ;) We start on the banks of the Danube canal to find out why the Romans decided to settled down here of all places. A short walk later we marvel at the impressive tower of St. Stephen's Cathedral while I tell you about its hidden symbolism of numbers. Further highlights on the way include Mozart's apartment, the old Greek quarter, romantic hidden alleys and courtyards, the Spanish Riding School as well as an almost real da Vinci. Upon arrival at the vast Hofburg Palace complex we will finally talk about the rise of the mightiest family in the history of Europe: the Habsburgs. But Vienna's history doesn't stop with the fall of the Habsburgs: where did Hitler speak in front of 200,000 cheering Austrians? And what makes modern-day Vienna the city with the highest standard of living worldwide? While taking in the beauty of the city I will keep you entertained with the best stories about its past and present - plus some questionable jokes! Keep in mind that we finish at Albertinaplatz, not where we met at the beginning. All tours are held in English.
Photographic Tour of the Imperial City
Welcome to one of the most appreciated experience in Vienna, described by the majority of my guests as "One of a Kind" and "Unique!", and rated 5/5 by 99% of those who allowed me to photograph them. Our photographic tour will begin at none other than the Vienna State Opera - an architectural marvel, and internationally recognised musical landmark. After hearing a few stories about the drama which surrounds the Opera, even before it was finished, we will head towards the most picturesque spot in the city - the Albertina Terrace (situated at the edge of the Hofburg). From the Hofburg - the Imperial Palace - we will venture into the heart of the Imperial City - die Innere Stadt, through the streets connected to the Corinthian Way, or Kärntner Straße. Before you wake up from the magic of Christmas-lights-gazing, we will reach the iconic Stephansplatz - Stephan’s Square, and of course, Stephansdom. Our next destination is Michaelerplatz - the entrance into the Hofburg. Michael’s Square is an architectural masterpiece, and our gateway into the Palace, towards the Heroes Square, or Heldenplatz. The conclusion to our photographic tour is Maria-Theresien-Platz, the mother of the twin museums.
