Additional tours in Vienna

Zentralfriedhof

A tour through Europe's second biggest cemetary to the last resting places of Austria's notables as well as simple graves from different epochs. The highlight of this tour is a visit to the art nouveau church which is commonly known as the "Lueger Kirche".

Sweet Vienna: Guglhupf and Kapuziner

Vienna is well known for its sweets and cakes as well as its Cafés and coffee culture. Stories from now and then will open your eyes to the world of Torten, Strudel, Knödel, Kipferl and Krapferl. This tour will show that eating and drinking are as much part of history and worth seeing as palaces and churches. Ideal for friends of Cafés and people with a sweet tooth, who would like a slightly different tour to the classic city tour.

Horses in Vienna: Lipizzaner and Fiaker

History of the "Mr Lipizzaner" and the first means of public transportation in Vienna, the Fiaker. Both are still popular attractions and very typical for the Viennese flair. Possibility to visit the morning training (only Tuesday-Saturday) and/or a ride with a Fiaker.

Vienna by bike

Vienna, a city with a high quality of living, offers more than 1000 km of biking paths. This environmentally friendly means of transportation offers you the opportunity to combine sport and culture with either a historic or modern program. "Green Vienna" (almost half of Vienna's 415 km² consits of green areas) is great for a bike tour and there many bike rental shops.

Highlights of the Viennese Medical World

Old General Hospital, Josefinum and Freud Museum.

The 7th and 8th Districts

The nobility promenaded along the Ring, the servants and scalawags further away. Take a pleasurable walk with me and hear about the history and stories of these two previous suburbs.
