Get to know Vienna from a different perspective and stroll through the narrow streets and magnificent boulevards to famous buildings and monuments with your certified tour guide.

You can decide which of Vienna's highlights you want to see. For example, you can visit Michaelerplatz with its Roman and medieval excavations and see the interior of St. Michael’s Church.

Admire the treasures of the Hofburg Palace and listen to true stories about Empress Sisi. Stroll across Heldenplatz and hear stories about the Austrian heroes. Listen to stories about Josef II at Josefsplatz and learn more about the National Library, the Spanish Riding School, the Augustinian Church, and the Habsburgs.

Walk past the Albertina, home to the largest graphic collection in the world, and see the Monument Against War and Fascism. Find out why the architect of the State Opera committed suicide, where Sachertorte was invented, and which building previously stood on the grounds of Hotel Sacher.

At Neuer Markt you can discover the strange Imperial Crypt burial rituals of the Habsburgs and learn where Mozart died. Hear about the importance of the house at Franziskanerplatz and explore Blutgasse to experience how the people of Vienna used to live and how they live today.

Listen to the legends of St. Stephan, visit Figlmüller with the famous Wiener Schnitzel, and explore the old university district. Admire the magnificent Baroque church of the Jesuits, discover the city walks, and explore the Greek quarter. Discover Vienna’s oldest church, St. Rupert's Church, and immerse yourself in the eventful history of the Romans and Jews in Vienna.

Hear anecdotes about King Richard the Lionheart as you walk past the beautiful Baroque Pestsäule on the Graben before reaching Kohlmarkt with the Demel pastry shop. You can then enjoy a stroll back to the starting point.
