Tour description

Are you interested in a Highlight Free-tour to the center of ancient political power in Europe? Do you know the most important sights of the Franzisco-Josephine period, the time of Emperor Franz Josef I. and his Elisabeth, the famous Sisi?

Hardly any regency has shaped Vienna so much and is so present in today's cityscape! Accompany me on a walk to the most important milestones in their life, also a must-see for all fans of Sisi!

We meet in the city center at the Austriabrunnen and visit
* Palais Niederösterreich  the beginning of the Emperor's reign
* Parliament and the most beautiful palace on the Ringstrasse
* Volksgarten with the Sisi monument
* The Hofbug, the center of power
* Ringstrasse with its distinctive monumental buildings
* MuseumsQuarter with Sisi's "Wellness Center".
* Vantage point to look at the Kaiserforum from above,

Quality is my top priority and therefore I guide in smaller groups only.

You will receive tips for further sights and which coffee houses, restaurants, and shops you should visit.

Whatever you decide, with this tour you will get a perfect overview of the imperial city of Vienna!

Tip: Don't forget your camera!

I am looking forward meeting you!
