What to expect

During this walking tour of Vienna, you will learn all about one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Discover the past and the present with a knowledgeable guide by your side.

The tour starts with Roman Vienna and the question of why a castle was built here. Learn all about the Hofburg Palace and the significance of the huge grounds covering 555,000 m². Get to know more about the most important rulers in the city. Be impressed by the size of Heroes' Square and what lies behind the facades. Discover why any trip to Vienna should include a visit to the Imperial Treasury, what there is to see in the city and things that you probably would have missed without your tour guide.

As you walk past the Austrian National Library with its state room, you will find out what the symbol on the roof means and why the square is named after Emperor Joseph II. Visit the church where many Habsburg weddings took place (closed on Sundays and public holidays). Learn more about the city's dark times, as you walk past the Albertina and the Monument Against War and Fascism. You will also stop at the State Opera and find out why the Hotel Sacher now stands in place of the former opera.
