On this guided walking tour our tour guides not only show you the most popular tourist attractions and historical sights but also tell you many background stories about Vienna.
Everywhere sights to see
Starting point is in front of the Vienna State Opera. From here we stroll through the city centre of Vienna.
On every corner a tourist attraction awaits to be discovered. For example, the Hotel Sacher, whose founder invented the delicious Sacher cake, the Spanish Riding School with its famous white Lipizzaner horses, the Imperial Crypt, the last resting place of the Habsburg dynasty or the impressive St. Stephan's Cathedral. Also on our route is the lively Graben with the historic Plague Column.
Oddities and secrets
Not only the buildings will impress you, but the many stories about them. For example, how the Vienna State Opera ended up with its nickname "sunken chest". Or where you get the real Sacher cake - at Hotel Sacher, at the Café Demel or at both?
