What You Can Expect

Vienna Old Town Evening Walking Tour with Optional Viennese Dinner

Upgrade your evening walking tour with a delicious typical Austrian dinner!

Evening is the most enchanting time to stroll through Vienna’s Old Town. After meeting your guide at the Kettenbruckengasse station entrance, start your 2-hour walking tour of the Old Town’s most famous sights and hidden local hotspots. Along the way, your guide will keep you entertained with stories about Vienna’s history, from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, to World War II and today.

Start at Naschmarkt, one of Vienna's most popular markets, and walk to the stately Vienna Opera House, impressive Hofburg Palace and Heroes’ Square, where Hitler gave his infamous ‘Anschluss’ speech to the Austrians in 1938.

View St Augustine's Church, where many members of the Habsburg dynasty married during the 18th and 19th centuries, and continue your stroll through the city to see Mozart's House, Jesuit Church, St Stephen's Cathedral and the old city walls at Stubentor.

Your last stop is at the Stadtpark (Vienna's city park) for photos by the Johann Strauss monument, a statue that celebrates the famous composer.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

Really enjoyed this! Although a few raindrops were falling as the group met by the Naschmarkt train station (Kettenbrueckengasse), our tour guide Andrea met us with excitement and a guarantee for a great time and clearing skies. She was right on both points. This tour group was an enthusiastic mix of hostel-hopping 20-somethings and older tourists. As we walked along Vienna’s old town streets and among memorials, famous buildings and landmarks, Andrea held a running chatter in English of historical facts combined with oodles of personal anecdotes about growing up in Austria. Her love of the city, and her drive to share that with the walkers was contagious. She included lots of tidbits not found in standard tourist guidebooks.

One word of warning – do not confuse this tour with Viator’s Vienna City Walking Tour, which ends at St. Stephen’s Cathedral. This one continues on through the Stadtpark, to a local restaurant for schnitzel and strudel, a 20-minute walk from St. Stephen’s. For those staying in the old town, it’s good to note the U4 train station has a stop in the park with frequent trains still running after 10 pm.

This tour would be great on the first night in Vienna to get acclimated to the city and find out what you’d like to go back to the next day. For me, it was my last night in the city and a fun way to find out some more things about the places I’d seen and to enjoy dinner out with new friends made on the tour.
