What you'll do

This is an intense adventure for the mind and senses - three hours that immerse you in the culture and history of Vienna's past and present, as well the irresistible atmosphere of the Vienna "Kaffeehaus" Culture. We meet in the center of the "Inner City", and on my very special route, we dive right into this world heritage site with amazing stories from past and present.

After having a look at St. Stephan’s Cathedral we turn to St. Peter’s Barock Church, from the “Graben” we head to the Imperial Palace and learn about the history of Vienna from the Romans to the Austrian-Hungarian Empire that perished 100 years ago, including the Spanish Riding School and the longest-reigning emperor Franz Joseph I as well as his legendary wife Sisi. Further stops on our journey through the unique history and culture of Vienna are the Burggarten, the Holocaust Memorial, the State Opera, and the magnificent Ring Boulevard.

We take a short look at the Albertina, the “Kunsthistorisches Museum” and the Museumsquartier to give you a first impression if you would like to come back later and visit these museums. To complete the experience, we visit my favorite elegant (non-tourist) Viennese "Kaffehaus", enjoy the special atmosphere, have one of the endless variations of coffee and try one of the typical warm sweet dishes - and believe me, it makes a difference whether you show up there with a local!

I'm from Vienna, Austria but have traveled about 50 countries and experienced different cultures. So my wife and I met people from abroad - and many visited us in Vienna in return. We picked them up, showed them around, organized activities and gave them a fully-fledged Vienna experience - and found this interesting and inspiring. This way our friends could use their time efficiently and had a local guide who took care of every aspect of their visit according to their areas of interest. After a while, we got more and more experience in organizing their visit and serving them as their hosts. When they told us how happy they were, we decided to offer our service to other travelers to Vienna. Our experience with other cultures came in quite handy and even if we hardly had known these people in the beginning, they always left as friends…

Where you'll be

We will explore the "Old Town" of Vienna which is a unique world heritage site. But you will also experience my favorite places and "secret" routes that lead us through historic and contemporary Vienna. You will gain insights into how the cultural and political past merge with life in today's most vibrant and up to date metropolis in the middle of central Europe - and end up enjoying the unique atmosphere of my favorite Viennese Coffee House.

Great tour, really personalised and in depth, we saw lots of sights that we wouldn't have known to go to and learnt about the history of Vienna in detail. Wolfgang also went above and beyond to cater to dietary requirements and also helped plan an itinery for the rest of our trip, suggesting other attractions, helping with transport and sourcing restaurants that would be suitable for us. Felt really personalised and 110% effort from Wolfgang. Would recommend to anyone visiting Vienna for the first time!

Wolfgang conducted a great walking tour. I learnt so much about the city in a matter of few hours. He tailored the tour based on the audience preferences and does not hesitate to answer any questions. If you are going to other parts of Austria he could also tailor a tour for you!

Really great experience would 10/10 recommend. Wolfgang knee so much about the history and changed the tour slightly to include our interests. Would be a great start to a Vienna trip as it shows so many slights you can then go and spend more time in. If you do one tour I would recommend this !

Tolle Tour um Wien und seine Sehenswürdigkeiten kennen zu lernen. Wolfgang ist sehr sympathisch, kennt Wien wie seine Westentasche und beantwortet jede Frage. Er bietet sogar die Möglichkeit den Wien Trip zu personalisieren und plant den ganzen Aufenthalt. Sehr empfehlenswert. Alle Tipps waren super und wir hätten nie so viel von Wien gesehen und so gut gegessen ohne seine Hilfe. Fragt unbedingt nach dem besten Eis von Wien, Wolfgang kennt es. Wolfgang hat unseren Trip definitiv zu etwas besonderem gemacht.

Wolfgang is very knowledgeable about the Viennese culture and history. He’s very passionate about sharing his city and we couldn’t have done it without him. He went above and beyond to share with us the best places to visit and best cafes and restaurants. If you have only few days to visit, I highly recommend this tour to begin with!

Eine schöne Möglichkeit, Wien kennenzulernen. Die Führung sollte möglichst zu Beginn des eigenen Aufenthalts gemacht werden, damit die Insider-Tipps von Wolfgang auch umgesetzt werden können.
