Our tour stops include:

  • Naschmarkt: This bustling market is a foodie's paradise, but it also has a dark history. The market was the site of several mass deportations of Vienna's Jewish population during World War II.
  • Secession: This modernist building was designed by architect Joseph Maria Olbrich and is home to Gustav Klimt's famous "Beethoven Frieze." It was also used by the Nazis as an exhibition hall for their propaganda.

If you do other tours, expect some of the same information, but in the same well-relayed way. This tour with Christina provide a decent bit more that still makes it very worthwhile and enjoyable.

Loved this tour! Josef was funny and informative. A true war historian with a very pragmatic view. Highly recommend, as it is a walking tour with a difference but still full of great facts and laughs
