Vienna: 30-Minute Fiaker Ride in the Old Town

1. Vienna: 30-Minute Fiaker Ride in the Old Town

Find your Fiaker next to the world-famous St. Stephen's Cathedral. From St. Stephen's Square, begin your journey to old seat of government during the Habsburg monarchy, the Hofburg. Today, the President and Chancellor of the Austrian Republic have their offices at this impressive complex. Travel along marvellous boulevard known as "The Ring", where you have the chance to see the buildings of the Natural Museum of History and Fine Arts. The square between the two buildings displays the statue of Maria Theresia, the sole female ruler in the house of Habsburg. Pass by the Austrian Parliament, built in a Greek architectural style with the statue of Pallas Athene in front of it. Right after the Parliament, see the Vienna Town Hall with its impressive square. The square in front of the hall is very popular among the Viennese, many events such as the annual film festival and the Christmas markets take place there. Finish your ride back at the St. Stephans Cathedral where it started.

During the ride your "Fiaker" (driver) will tell you about the history of Vienna. Listen to the stories he has to tell you about Schönbrunn, its inhabitants and visitors, as well as about the long tradition of horse-drawn carriages in Vienna. You will be sure not to miss anything from these extensive gardens, as you will see almost every corner from a comfortable seat on your carriage. Just lean back and admire the scenery.

We waited anxiously for our ride to turn up as we were booked for 10:20am. No need to have worried, the ride turned up with a few minutes to spare, obviously we must have been the first of the day! The driver spoke good English, pointing out landmarks, and gladly took our photos for us at the end when we wanted a family photo sitting in the cart. We would recommend the experience, it is magical way to see parts of Vienna and feel like royalty…

We really enjoyed the ride, our coachman told us a lot about the old town and responded to our sightseeing requests. He also organized someone to take some commemorative photos. Just a lasting memory!

Nice tour of the old town. Very nice driver. However, the highlights are always over quickly, since of course there is no stopping.

It was a most enjoyable experience. Easy to find and afterwards you can decide where you want to spend more time.

Right on time, friendly guide & very nice way to discover the old part of Vienna.
