About the Tour

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

In the first district of the city, we will see the walls from the 12th century. I will tell you about the legend of “Dear Augustine”. Also, I will share stories about life in the metropolis that was the center of the Holy Roman Empire for more than 600 years.

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. Coffee culture today and one of the oldest coffee houses where both Mozart and Beethoven performed are as well on our map.

Vienna and movies:
More than 25 years have passed since the cult movie "Before Sunrise" with Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy, playing the main role was filmed in Vienna. The coffee house where they intuitively agree on taking some time to talk is on our “en route”.
From the mid 16 century, the "ball" was played in Vienna, but what is the connection with today's ball season?
After ca. two hours, our journey ends at the Cathedral of St. Stephan in the city center.

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps
