Vienna's historic old town
This is a fun and comprehensive walking tour including all the highlights of the old town. We start on the banks of the Danube canal to find out why the Romans decided to settled down here of all places. A short walk later we marvel at the impressive tower of St. Stephen's Cathedral while I tell you about its hidden symbolism of numbers. Further highlights on the way include Mozart's apartment, the old Greek quarter, romantic hidden alleys and courtyards, the Spanish Riding School as well as an almost real da Vinci. Upon arrival at the vast Hofburg Palace complex we will finally talk about the rise of the mightiest family in the history of Europe: the Habsburgs.
Vienna's history doesn't stop with the fall of the Habsburgs though: where did Hitler speak in front of 200,000 cheering Austrians? And what makes modern-day Vienna the city with the highest standard of living worldwide?
While taking in the beauty of the city I will keep you entertained with the best stories about its past and present - plus some questionable jokes!
