Overview
You now have the chance to learn more about Vienna´s history, architecture, culture, and especially about the people who have lived here and those who are still living here. Get to know Vienna in a unique and different way, not just what’s listed in typical brochures and guide books.

  • See Vienna's top sites, such as the Imperial Palace, and learn about the Habsburgs
  • Great for first-time visitors to get their bearings of the city
What to Expect
Your Vienna tour begins by meeting at a prearranged central location. Being in a small group means having better access to your guide, if you have any questions. The day gives you insights into Vienna's fascinating history and the royal Habsburg dynasty. Visit the Imperial Palace, Imperial Apartments, Outer Gate, and Hero Square. If you're a museum fan, you'll enjoy seeing MuseumsQuartier, the Art History Museum, the Natural History Museum, and Albertina Museum. Vienna has many beautiful squares and you'll take in St. Michael's Square, St. Stephen's Square, and Josef's Square. Afterwar, learn about Vienna during World War II and see Parliament, City Hall, Imperial Treasury, and the National Library. See more than 20 attractions, including the State Opera House, New Market, Spanish Riding School, and the Imperial Crypt. Hear about famous Vienna residents, architecture, history, and legends, such as the one about Sissi’s diamonds.

We joined Herbert and four guests today on our morning walk through the streets and alleys of Vienna. It was very informative, nicely paced and he even organised a smattering of snow for us. Rug up and you’ll enjoy a couple of hours of Herbert’s company.

This was a very informative and enjoyable tour. The pace was just right even considering the chilly weather. Herbert was a knowledgeable, informative, funny, and interesting guide. He was very willing to answer questions and took time well beyond what was allotted to our tour.
