My private Half Day Walking Tour Vienna is best for good walkers, who wish to get an overview of Vienna’s main sights and learn what the city has to offer. It is appropriate for First-Time-Visitors and orientation in Vienna. I will provide some useful information to get the most out of your stay!

You will see:

  • Ringstrasse and the majestic buildings of the Parliament, Burgtheater (Imperial Court Theatre), City Hall, University, Vienna State Opera, Kunsthistorisches Museum (Museum of Art History), Naturhistorisches Museum (Museum of Natural History) and others;
  • Hofburg with its squares and courtyards (stables of the Lipizzans, Spanish Riding School, Imperial Library);

If you like to visit also the Nr. 1 attraction in Vienna, the Schönbrunn Palace, take my Full Day Walking Tour Vienna. With me, your personal guide, you will see rooms in the palace, which are not accessible to the main touristic stream.
Individual tourists, who like it the comfortable way or those who have difficulties walking might like my Private City Tour Vienna by minivan.

Private City Tour, additional information…

The Ringstrasse (ring road) was built in the second half of the 19th century instead of the old city walls. Emperor Franz Joseph had the idea to construct a wide and elegant boulevard like the boulevards in Paris. Majestic public buildings and magnificent city palaces were to adorn the street. The Vienna Ringstrasse is one of the most beautiful streets in Europe.

Hofburg was the imperial residence of the Habsburgs. It is a complex of buildings from different periods of time. Today the Federal President of the Republic of Austria works in the Leopoldine wing. The Spanish Riding School is also located there. You can observe the white Lipizzaners in their stables.

Belvedere Palace is one of the most beautiful baroque palaces in Austria. It is the former summer residence of the famous general Prince Eugene of Savoy (1663-1736). Today the Austrian Gallery is located there. It houses one of the most important collections of paintings from the Biedermeier period. You can admire also the works of numerous Austrian artists from around 1900. The most popular painting there is Gustav Klimt’s (1862-1918) Kiss.
