Tour description

Are you interested in a tour of the highlights in the center of imperial political power in Europe? Experience the most important sights of the Francisco-Josephine period, the time of Emperor Franz Josef I. and his Elisabeth, the famous Sisi?

Hardly any dynasty has shaped Vienna as much and is still so present in today’s cityscape! Join me on a walk to the most important milestones of their lives, also a must-see for all Sisi fans!

This tour will offer a perfect overview of the imperial city of Vienna! We meet in the city center at the Austriabrunnen and visit

  • Palais Niederösterreich where the Emperor’s reign began
  • Parliament building and the most beautiful palace on the Ringstrasse
  • Volksgarten with the Sisi monument
  • The Hofburg, the seat of power
  • MuseumsQuarter with Sisi’s „Wellness Center“
  • Lookout at the Kaiserforum from above
    (summer only)

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

During the tour I will also give you tips and hints on other sights and shopping opportunities.

Tip: Don’t forget your camera!

I am looking forward to meeting you!

Michaels Begeisterung für das Thema und die Führung war regelrecht zu spüren. Er führte uns an die spannendsten und interessantesten Plätze und begeisterte uns mit allerlei Wissenswerten zur Geschichte, Architektur und den Menschen! Mit seiner angenehmen und auch lustigen Art verging die Tour wie im Flug, die aufgrund eines kleines exkurses (der aufgrund der kleinen Gruppe möglich war) sogar etwas länger dauerte.
