What to expect

On this tour, you will learn about a globalized world affected by climate change, dominated by trade and profit, where suddenly a serious illness from Asia paralyzed all of Europe. No, this is not about 2020, but about the 14th-century plague epidemic that struck Vienna in 1349.

The black plague haunted Vienna several times in history, leaving memories of death and destruction, but also of duty and hope. Countless works of art, churches, and buildings still exist to attest to this. Take part in a tour that leads into the darkest years of Viennese history.

The tour of the beautiful Karlskirche is included in this tour. This was dedicated to Saint Charles, the protector of the plague.
