Vienna: Walking Tour of the Historic Ringstrasse

1. Vienna: Walking Tour of the Historic Ringstrasse

150 years ago Emperor Francis Josef commissioned the demolition of the city walls. His vision was to create a unique ensemble of public buildings housing cultural things such as the opera, and the theater, as well as museums, universities, the Academy of Fine Arts, parliament, and city hall. A lot of industrialists and bankers took the opportunity to present their wealth and get a title, building amazing oversized palaces. The wide boulevard was lined with trees, and special paths for carriages, riders, and pedestrians were created. Numerous famous artists, architects, and planners were attracted by this project, who came to Vienna from all parts of Europe. Poor people who were also looking for work arrived and worked under incredible conditions. During this walk you will see the most representative part of the Ring, Palais Ephrusi, which was commissioned by the rich Jewish banker family. This family's fate is described in the book "The Hare with the Amber Eyes". You will also encounter the Votive Church, the main building of the University of Vienna, City Hall, Burgtheater, Parliament, Heldenplatz, Museums, Volksgarten, and statues such as of the mayor Liebenberg or Pallas Athene. At the end of this scenic experience, your tour will end next to the Opera House.

Vienna Old Town Walking Tour in German

2. Vienna Old Town Walking Tour in German

Walk through the former Jewish and the Greek district, past Vienna's oldest "Beisl" (restaurant) to the wonderful Heiligenkreuzerhof, in which some Roman constructions are still preserved. See narrow streets, old craft workshops, and other historical buildings.  Listen to fascinating stories about the old university, and tales of those who studied there. Learn about the history of musicians associated with the city such as Schumann, Haydn, and Schubert.  Finally, admire the old university church with its brown-golden marble splendor. This magnificent building - together with the Jesuit theater and the university - was once supposed to impress protestants and make them return to the Catholic Church. The Jesuits, who were called to Vienna by the Hapsburg family, stayed influential until they were banned by Maria Theresia in 1772. Today they are responsible for the church once again.

Marieta is the best tour guide for the city

My entire family loved Marieta and her walking tour of the city. Vienna is a beautiful city, and her insight was a five star performance. Every building she provided an excellent description of it’s history. Both my wife and mother in law love roses, and when she took through the park, the roses left them both speechless. She could not have planned a better tour. Marieta is gracious, professional and every family that tours Vienna should request her. We thank her one last time for the tour of a lifetime.

Booking the tour was quick and straightforward. The guide responded to our requests and questions. It was noticed that he made the tours with passion. A huge compliment and thanks to Pacic Christian for the interesting hours in Vienna
