Private Vienna Old Town Walking Tour

Duration:   02h 30 min

Overview

Vienna's historic city center should be one of the highlights of your trip - it is packed with world-famous sights and monuments related to Vienna's imperial past! The best way to discover the old quarter is on foot with one of our friendly and enthusiastic guides.

Your guide will meet you directly at your centrally located hotel or a meeting point in the city center. He'll take you to the most important sights, explain the history and share intriguing stories and anecdotes with you. Of course he also knows where to take the best pictures!

First you will be introduced to St. Stephen's cathedral in detail. Freeze in awe in front of the majestic gothic structure with it's great South Tower and the roof covered with 230.000 glazed tiles. The interior of the church is considered by some to be the world's most beautiful.

Then your guide will show you the amazing area behind the cathedral with its narrow streets and hidden courtyards. See the house where Mozart wrote his famous opera "The Marriage of Figaro" and marvel at the typical “Pawlatschen” access balconies!

Across the famous Graben street you arrive at the plague column, a unique masterpiece from the baroque era. Take a quick glimpse into the marvelous church of St. Peter with your guide. If you're lucky you might hear the organ being played. Then you will walk along the Kohlmarkt, Vienna's most elegant shopping street, resisting the temptation to enter the Demel confectionery and the many designer boutiques.

Of course you visit the vast complex of the Imperial Palace extensively. With over 2.600 rooms it is one of the world's largest building complexes. Admire the ample wings and courtyards of the Hofburg and see the Heroe's Square, the Spanish Riding School, the stables of the Lipizzan horses and the church of St. Augustine. There Emperor Franz Josef married his 16 year old cousin Sisi. You also see several locations from the famous movie "The Third Man".

At the end of the walking tour your guide shows you the Sacher hotel (famous chocolate cake), the Albertina museum and the Monument against War and Fascism.

Enjoy the individual service and personal atmosphere of a private tour: Your knowledgeable guide is ready to respond to (almost) your every request and requirement. Listen to intriguing and amusing stories about Vienna and the Viennese and take advantage of your guide's insider knowledge. Lots of photo opportunities!

Private Walking Tour of Vienna
Scheduled an afternoon walking tour of Vienna with Vienna a la Carte. My husband and I were traveling with our 17-year old daughter and her best friend. Our guide, Brenda, met us at our hotel and walked us through the Hofburg and we ended at St. Stephen's Church. Brenda was a delight. She was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining and if we are back to Vienna we will surely request her for another tour.
