Historic Tours in Vienna

By Viator, March 2014

4 22 Reviews | Add your review

Vienna is a city awash with history, culture and music, ornate palaces, fabulous museums and galleries and it’s impossible to catch everything in one visit. Taking a tour guarantees that you’ll see all the amazing sights, and as all these walks are led by history buffs who are expert in their chosen fields, you’ll have the added benefit of all their knowledge.

Historical Tour of Vienna

If you’re short on time in Vienna, the best way to see the significant landmarks is by taking a three-hour guided walking tour. The route passes the Viennese Parliament, City Hall, the Burgtheater, the University, a clutch of museums and the Hofburg Palace. On arriving at the majestic Schonbrunn Palace, you get to skip the line and take a guided tour of the former summer residence of the Habsburg monarchy.

Jewish Vienna

Vienna is steeped in Jewish history and there’s no better way to appreciate this than an informative guided walking tour. In two hours, you’ll see the Gestapo headquarters and the controversial Rachel Whiteread monument to Jewish prisoners of WWII in Morzinplatz, explore the Jewish Textile Quarter and discover the excavated synagogue in the Judenplatz Jewish Museum.

Underground Vienna

This two-hour walking tour is ideal for second-time visitors with a yen to experience a different aspect of Vienna; it kicks off in the macabre crypt of Romanesque St Michael’s Church – where Mozart’s Requiem was first performed in 1793 – which holds the perfectly preserved bodies of up to 4,000 Austrian nobles from the 16th and 17th centuries. The second stop is outside in Michaelerplatz to explore the excavated Roman encampment of Vindobona; evidence suggests that up to 6,000 soldiers were stationed here, laying the early foundations of modern-day Vienna.
