YOUR VIENNA TOURS

Discover the city, its history and stories.
I look forward to showing you around my Vienna.

The current Covid-19 regulations unfortunately do not allow us Viennese guides to offer guided tours at the moment. As difficult as this situation is, I understand and support this measure. Only together we can make it through this time.

All the more reason for me to look forward to welcoming you to one – or more – of my guided tours in a few weeks time.

In the meantime, I will of course be happy to take your requests for guided tours.

VIENNA AT 1900 – Part 1

On the trail of Art Nouveau from Wienzeile to Karlsplatz

Art Nouveau architects – to a certain extent they were the punks at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. The old no longer suited them, so they created something new and never before seen.
On our walk we pass Otto Wagner’s famous houses at Wienzeile, the Secession and also some less known testimonies from the time around 1900.

HELDENPLATZ

“Heroes Square”

Of “heroes” and other people

COURT SUPPLIERS & OTHER STORES

From Aida to Zacherl – on the tracks of traditional Viennese companies in the 1st district.
Between all thecity centers international chains, designer boutiques and souvenir stores we look for and find traces of the “good old business-times”. Where people shop in the Steffl departement store today, there was once a shopping temple designed by Otto Wagner. And not far from there you could find the “most Parisian of all department stores in the world”.
A few traditional companies still exist. Others are now history. On this walk we will bring them back to life a little bit.

MEMORIALS AT THE CENTRAL CEMETERY

Big tragedies and the small drama
Vienna’s largest cemetery also reminds us of the great tragedies of Austrian history. Our tour takes us to memorial sites such as the National Memorial to the Victims for a Free Austria and the February Fighters Memorial. But we also visit places of remembrance on a smaller scale: cemeteries of different religious communities, anatomy graves, forest cemetery… A walk around the central cemetery away from the graves of honour.
Please note, the memorials tour takes about 3 hours.

 

Cost EUR 23 per adult (min. 3 guests)
EUR 10 per child under 12 years

MY SIMMERING

Community buildings, football stars and the last executioner of Vienna
The 11th district of Vienna is probably not the first choice for visitors to Vienna. But this former suburb offers a long and interesting history. As one of the centres of Red Vienna fought over in the interwar period, the district is now a popular residential area.
If you would like to see Vienna off the beaten tourist track, I look forward to showing you the Simmering where I grew up.
