Vienna for Connoisseurs

Vienna has so much to offer! Here are some walks on special topics which are not only ideal for guests who already know Vienna well, but also for locals who would like to learn more about their city.



Powerful Women in Vienna

In Vienna only few monuments are dedicated to women, yet so many interesting women have lived in our town and influenced its history – not only in a passive way as wives, muses, or lovers of influential men. On this tour our focus is on outstanding and strong female figures from politics and science, art, and economy.

Four in a Jeep – Occupied Vienna from 1945-55

From 1945-1955, Vienna was occupied by the four Allies – the Americans, the British, the French and the Soviets – and divided into five zones. In the International Zone (1st district of Vienna), public order was maintained by joint military patrols of the four occupying powers in jeeps – these were known as the ‘Four in a Jeep’. The people of Vienna had to endure difficult times; especially the Soviet occupiers and their harassment were feared. How was it possible that Vienna and Austria finally got its full sovereignty back and was not divided like Germany? This walk will show you what efforts the local politicians made to regain Austria's freedom and where the most important institutions of the occupying forces were housed.

Vienna’s Wildlife in Art and Nature

Cats and dogs are the most favourite pets of the Viennese, but inside the city you find many other creatures. On the one hand, they are real because they have found their habitat in the buildings and parks. On the other hand, they are made of stone and bronze and sometimes not even recognized. This is a rather unusual wildlife tour through the old town of Vienna where you almost learn as much about animals like during a visit in the Schönbrunn Zoo…

Pizza, Ice-Cream, Dolce Vita -
Italian Traces in Vienna

Artists, composers, chimney sweeps, salami, and ice-cream sellers - there are many more traces of our Italian neighbours than you might have first thought. Several members of the Habsburg family married Italians who brought their language and culture with them to their new home.

Bohemian-Austrian Rhapsody

You only have to look at the menu in a local restaurant or pub to come across the great influence of Bohemian cuisine. Dumplings, ‘powidl’ (a special plum jam) and delicious pastries called ‘golatsche’ are just a few examples of the dishes the Czechs and Slovaks have given Vienna. But there is much more….

Literary Paths and Traces

Vienna is not only a city of musicians but also of writers and poets. From Marcus Aurelius to Franz Grillparzer. From Arthur Schnitzler to Elfriede Jelinek. What has ‘Bambi’ got in common with coffee house literature, and why were cow pats used in a protest against the Burgtheater? The answer to these and many other questions can be found on this literary tour through Vienna´s city centre.
