  • Vienna: Concert in Kursalon with Dinner

    1. Vienna: Concert in Kursalon with Dinner

    Experience an incredible evening in classic style and enjoy the most beautiful compositions of Johann Strauss and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Enjoy the whole repertoire of classical music and admire the excellent opera singers and fascinating ballet soloists. Begin the evening with a 3-course meal in the in-house restaurant "Das Johann" and enjoy the Salonorchester of Old Vienna's music in the Kursalon. Hear beautiful operettas and impressive solo concerts by the 2 best composers in the world, performed with incredible artistry. 

    The concert was amazing. Most probably because it was the first concert after a long time. The venue is great, the atmosphere is great and the musicians, singers and dancers were amazing. The dark side of this attraction is dinner. There was wedding fest going on at the same restaurant with loud music playing, the tables and chairs were brought from the terrace and the seating has been arrange in the empty hall from furnishings that remain after the wedding fest. Just four-five table in the big room with loud music coming from the next door. No possibility to go sit outside where majority of people coming from the street ate. The staff really did not care about the people who bought this package. Just "ok, we have to somehow feed you". The service was bad, the food was also absolutely average. The cheapest possible option. If I go again, I would go to the concert but not to the dinner. You better go and eat what you want and sit where you want with the proper atmosphere.

  • Vienna: Cruise and Schnitzel Tour

    2. Vienna: Cruise and Schnitzel Tour

    A cruise through Vienna with a fitting culinary combination. The ticket includes a boat trip down the Danube and through Vienna. Start the tour at Schwedenplatz and redeem your voucher at the Vienna/City boat station at the DDSG Blue Danube. The ships depart just a few minutes' walk from St. Stephen's Cathedral in the city center. On board, the crew welcomes you. The ships are beautiful restaurant ships that sail both the Vienna Danube Canal and the great Danube. During the tour you will pass through two locks, a process that takes about 20 minutes each time. The tours are carried out with both the French designed MS Vindobona, which is now one of the sights of Vienna (departure 11:30 and 15:00) and the MS Wien, which has a large outdoor deck (departure 10:30 and 14:00). Both ships are air conditioned. The food is freshly prepared on board, the Schnitzel of course tapped, breaded and ...

    Highly recommend the full 3.5 hour tour over the 1.5. You see a lot more of the Danube and the 1.5 spends a good 1/3 of the time in one of the locks. Don't bother with the food, bring your own and grab seats in the front of the boat for the best views.

  • Vienna: Naschmarkt Guided Food Tour

    I really enjoyed this chance to try a huge variety of things at Naschtmarkt and learn more about many types of cuisines in the world at the market where the Viennese shop for their most exotic, imported ingredients. The market is in a beautiful plaza and is such an experience. And Erika is a sweet and very knowledgable guide!

  • Vienna: 3-Course Evening Dinner Cruise

    4. Vienna: 3-Course Evening Dinner Cruise

    Pass the romantically lit shores and enjoy the excellent service of the on-board restaurant. Varied menus that are always freshly prepared on the ship provide culinary highlights. Come aboard the 'Dream Ship' and let your mind wander. The cruise starts at Schwedenplatz, just a few steps from the city center. Exchange your voucher for a ticket at the shipping station (after the checkpoint directly at the ship). The friendly crew of MS Wien is pleased to welcome you on board. The evening cruise leads past the lively bustle on the banks of the Danube Canal. Pass the Nussdorf lock and experience how the ship overcomes the dammed-up elevation and approaches the sunset on the Danube.

    El crucero está bien, pero al hacerlo de noche no es mas que cenar en un barco puesto que no se aprecia el paisaje. La comida es correcta.

  • Vienna: Danube Canal Cruise with Apple Strudel

    5. Vienna: Danube Canal Cruise with Apple Strudel

    Discover the wonders of Vienna from a different perspective on this idyllic cruise along the Danube Canal. The trip begins at Schwedenplatz and sets sail onto the Viennese Donaukanal.

As you glide along the water, soak up the sights that surround you and enjoy a delicious warm apple strudel and a hot drink. Choose between a melange, hot chocolate, or a tea, then find a seat to admire the view. On the tour, see a selection of the city’s most iconic buildings, including the Uniqa Tower, Uranie Observatory, Jean Nouvel hotel and commercial building, the Schützenhaus by Otto Wagner, Ringturm, Roßauer Kaserne, Zaha Hadid House and the Spittelau waste incineration plant designed by Friedensreich Hundertwasser.

  • Vienna: Local Wine Tasting in a Historic Roman Wine Cellar

    9. Vienna: Local Wine Tasting in a Historic Roman Wine Cellar

    Since time immemorial, around 700 hectares of wine have been cultivated within Vienna's urban area. The roots of viticulture here go as far back as the Romans, who populated the city two thousand years ago. But what exactly is left of the former empire in Vienna today and how is that related to Viennese wine? Get to the bottom of these questions in the truest sense of the word with a wine tasting in the city's deepest wine cellar.  A trained wine expert will lead you into the cellar to taste three different wines. The wines range from classic Viennese wines to other Austrian wines, which will, of course, be paired with a small snack from from the in-house, family-owned delicatessen.

    Cornelius gave an excellent wine tasting. He was able to combine the history of Vienna with the development of the wine industry. He designed our tasting, based on our preferences. We have lived in Vienna for many years, and he was able to expand our knowledge of Austrian wine. The visit to the historic cellar was self guided.

    Unforgettable trip. Gabriel, our Hungarian guide, was thoughtful and friendly. Highly recommended.

Planning Your Visit

  • How do walking tours work?

    When you sign up for a free tour of the city, local guides will lead you to the top attractions and give you great information about them. Though the service is essentially free of charge, guides live off the tips you give them. Therefore, make sure you have local cash on hand and tip them accordingly for their work at the end of the tour.

  • How long is a walking tour?

    Most free walking tours last about two and a half hours and usually include a break along the way. However, if this seems a bit too much, you can certainly find city tours that focus on specific points of interest, neighborhoods and history. Alternatively, you could follow your own two feet to the sites that interest you.

Very interesting and explained very clearly. The walk through the crypts and looking at the corpses and the thousands of bones was extraordinary and I did not expect it, therefore 5 stars. Was great.

I would recommend this to anyone really. The history is very interesting and the building is impressive. Our guide explained many different things about all aspects of the Spanish Riding School.

This tour was so interesting and informative, Dieter was a wealth of knowledge and sensitive to this topic and the group's background. I would highly recommend it Thank you

Interesting tour, very entertaining. With us it lasted about 2 hours, you should plan a little more time than the specified 90 minutes.

Good tour wish I had known about the morning training tour.
