Tour description

Experience the darker side of Vienna's history with our "Hitler & the New Vienna 1900" tour.

Our knowledgeable local, licensed guides will take you on a high-quality free tour experience where you will learn about the rise and fall of Hitler and the Nazi regime, as well as the modern parts of the city center that stand in stark contrast to Nazi architecture.

This tour offers more than just a glimpse into Austria's past.

You'll also discover astonishing stories about the birth of modern Austria and the famous urbanization of Vienna. Our guides will showcase Otto Wagner's inventions and allow you to feel on top of the artistic vibes of MQ.

Our tour stops include:

  • Karlskirche: This baroque church was built in the early 18th century and is one of Vienna's most beautiful buildings. During the Nazi era, it was used as a storage facility for art stolen from Jewish families.
  • 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.
  • Wien Museum: This museum houses a collection of Vienna's cultural and historical artifacts. You'll learn about the city's rich history and see artifacts related to the Nazi era.

Nuestro gurú Josef explicó muy bien toda la información que quería transmitir, si es verdad que si buscas un tour en el que se hable específicamente de Hitler no va a ser este tour ya que en el, solamente hablan unas 3 veces de Hitler y un poco de forma tangencial. Pero si te quieres enterar de la situación sociopolitica y económica de Austria en el siglo XIX y XX, este es tu tour ya que es excelente y Josef es un gran historiador. Muchas gracias Josef por enseñarnos un trocito de Viena.

Christina was a great guide. She clearly knew the subject and by the time we were done we felt we had a much better understanding of Vienna leading up to both World Wars and the aftermath. Well worth the time.
