About the tour

An old and venerable city like Vienna has a lot behind the scenes. The Legends of Vienna walk is a very adequate one in order to the flip side of the classic Vienna covering the other part of the old town which is usually ''under the radar". Lack of top drawer sights might put some travellers off the scent, so to speak. Venturing there is a wonderful experience discovering hidden gems like serene picturesque back lanes, old courtyards, dazzling Baroque churches towering over elegant squares coming by surprise, addresses of the famous musicians a lot more. Consider all that paired with some curious informational nuggets provided by your guide :) Consider it a spoiler:

– We will hear which role the devil played in building the main St. Stephen's church

– Why and how Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was fired by his irascible employer

– How the Gream Reaper was positively instrumental in the professional success of one of the top notch Viennese doctors back in the Middle Ages

– What a scary beast used to poison wells in the medieval Vienna

– How Vienna was saved from the Ottomans during the siege in the 16 century

– And a lot more

Max out your Viennese experience. The Legends of Vienna is a good opportunity to look in the minds of the people who made this city great.
