Tour description

Welcome back to Vienna! If it's not your first time exploring the city, you've probably seen the classic highlights already.

Now, it's time to discover Vienna from a different perspective.

Join me for a walk-through unique Old Town of Vienna. Together we will explore and discover the stories, legends, and tales in the unique old part of Vienna.

Our tour is designed for those who want to go beyond the typical tourist attractions and delve into the lesser-known gems, hidden corners, and local secrets that make Vienna truly unique.

On a walking tour led by the Viennese stories, get a closer look at Vienna's most intriguing and distinctive locations while learning about the city's lengthy history and varied culture.

In the first district of the city, we will see the walls from the medieval time. I will tell you about the legend of “Dear Augustine”.

Vienna and music: A walk through Vienna is impossible without visiting one of the houses where the maestro Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart lived, which is a Museum now. This is the best place to talk about Mozart's legacy that moves Vienna’s concerts scene till today.

Coffee and croissant: In one of the alleys, we will discover how coffee has become an everyday ritual and since when bakers in Vienna have been baking the popular croissants and pretzels.

After ca. two hours, our walk ends at the Hoher Markt in front of the Anker clock. An extraordinary watch, that was invented by Franz von Matsch in the time of Art Nouveau at the beginning of the 20th Century.

Get ready for an exciting journey through the unconventional side of Vienna!

I’m looking forward to it !

Sincierly Yours Mirko!
