This 3-hours walking tour through Vienna's historic city center gives you a great first impression of what the city has to offer and lets you experience all the most important sites. I just can't have you visit Vienna and NOT see these places!
We will start our tour at the Albertina Art Palace in which the artloving sister of Marie Antoinette used to live. A beautiful classicist palace!
Marie Antoinette and her sisters were Habsburg princesses and grew up in the Imperial Palace. A huge palace complex for the rulers of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
Next we see famous Ring Street, built around the old city center, with its stunning public buildings, like the parliament.
A nice warm cup of Viennese coffee or tea is next on the list. I will teach you all about the 100 different Viennese coffee variations and then quiz you about them later on.
We will continue our walk in the historic city center and possibly grab a Figlmüller Wiener Schnitzel to go. Our tour concludes at St. Stephan's Cathedral.

Susanne was a great guide. My absolute favorite experience was our visit to a small Vienna cafe for Viennese coffee and sweets. We met the owner who was charming. We were with Susanne for two days and toured the must see sites including the Belvedere.
