Vienna Tours: Private Walking Tours
Vienna's city centre is compact, largely a pedestrian area, and full of must-sees.
You arrive late in the afternoon in Vienna and can't wait to get out. This private evening walking tour takes you on an extended orientation trip through the city centre. Vienna's landmarks are magic when illuminated. The small local tour operator is also highly popular for his personal advice on what to see and do in Vienna. A great and unusual tour to start your city break. Learn more about the Evening Walking Tour.
What I like about this tour is that it comes in neat digestible packages. During the three-hour core tour, the local tour guide will
show you the essentials, from Ringstrasse boulevard and Schonbrunn Palace to artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser's iconic blobby building in
the district of Landstrasse. This is the easy-peasy mini-van tour. If you can spare two more hours and like to walk, he will take you into
the city centre, including the Imperial Palace, the Jewish quarter and St. Stephen's Cathedral. The full-day tour (seven hours) builds upon
the five hour tour, and includes more hidden places in the city centre, and then to the wineries of Grinzing and the Vienna Woods.
Tour Vienna with Barbara, a qualified Austrian actress, graphic designer, journalist, book author and licensed tour guide who loves to share her passion for Vienna's culture and history. Barbara not only weaves authentic local stories into her tours, but collects them herself (she has publicised a book about true stories as told by Viennese taxi drivers).
Schönbrunn Palace and the Belvedere Vienna are the figureheads of baroque Vienna. This tour will bring them and their baroque gardens into perspective. You will start at the gardens of the Belvedere, which connect both the Upper and Lower Belvedere palaces. On the way to Schonbrunn Palace you will see and learn more about the sumptuous baroque Church St. Charles Borromeo. The tour guide has rightly decided to include two Art Nouveau pavilions by Otto Wagner into his baroque tour. They are on the way and too good to be missed. Learn more about the Baroque Splendours Tour.
Private tour guide Yvonne focuses on bringing Vienna to life by adding contemporary information and knowledge about the Viennese way of life to her art and history tours. She specialises in city and courtyards walks and in escorted Vienna tours of museums and palaces.)
Sigmund Freud, father of psychoanalysis, is more popular than ever since David Cronenberg's recent blockbuster A Dangerous Method. This tour does not refer to the film but follows Freud's footsteps when he lived and worked in Vienna for almost half a century. You will visit many places with a reference to Freud, the highlight being his former consulting room turned museum. The tour also makes reference to Stefan Zweig's novel The World Of Yesterday which describes Vienna at the turn of the 19th century until World War II.
