Making use of Vienna’s efficient and easy to use public transport system we start in Heiligenstadt where the 1934 “Karl Marx Hof” gives evidence of the cities long tradition in socially responsible housing projects.
A bus takes us up to the edge of the Vienna Woods from where we oversee the whole city panorama. From “Kahlenberg” we descend into the vineyards of “Nussberg” and take a taste or two at one of the little outdoor taverns. Descending into the city we pass one Vienna’s most prestigious residential neighborhoods. Via “Beethoven Gang” and “Eroica Lane” we reach “Pfarrplatz” which – leave aside the parked cars – looks very much like in the years between 1802-1817, when Beethoven spent some summers here. Our tour ends with a glass or two at the historic “Mayer am Pfarrplatz”. As it’s easy to reach any hotel in Vienna from here you may enjoy dinner on your own.
Viennese by birth it took me years of international touring to find home to Vienna and now – as a licensed “Austria Guide” - I love to share my passion for this city. I specialize in walking tours - making use of our efficient public transportation system. My walk through Vienna’s suburban vineyards can also be done as an Urban Hike! If you dedicate a minimum of 2 night/days to Vienna we could do the “Big Five” - Old Town/Cathedral, Belvedere Palace & Gardens, Schoenbrunn Palace & Gardens, Prater/Ferris Wheel, Beethoven’s Vineyards! – I hate to let you go with less! Beyond my tour information I love to share hints for shopping, eating and about Vienna’s musical wealth. My walks are suitable for up to 30 guests and require a certain willingness to walk. Private transportation for 1-3 and 4-7 guests can be arranged. Full profile
