Tour description

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.

Get a closer look at Vienna’s most interesting and unique sites, and learn about the city’s long history and diverse culture on a walking tour with the Viennese tales.

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”. 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.

At the Hoher Markt we will see 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.

After ca. two hours, our journey ends at the Cathedral of St. Stephan in the city center.

I’m looking forward to seeing you in Vienna!

Sincierly Yours Mirko!
