The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I had the possibility to test the augmented reality tour with a group of friends. We had a really good time solving all the riddles and mysteries and it‘s so much (extra) fun with the visuals and sounds. I highly recommend the tour!

I took part in a ArchaoNOW tour. Moving along the city center with map provided by them and quiz tests that support to discover new things about Wien city. The tour has been run on our own path as there was not really rush in it but everyone can decide how spent time moving, no hurry but you can take time you need. they tours offer the possibility to see the city for particular that sometimes are missed in bigger tours.

And so educational!

This was the best way to explore the city on our first day and get a first "feel" for it without boring or children who actively took part.

Recommended highly for all ages!

We made this trip together with a couple of friends as part of our Bachelorette weekend in Vienna and we had a great time!
The riddles are nice to follow as they takes you through the city center walking and giving you some history facts of the buildings and monuments...
It takes around 2 hours and is a nice way to have a friendly competition if you are at divided in teams.
We all would highly recommended!

An awesome way to experience Vienna. Miriam was a top guide and although we already knew the city well, we learned a lot of amazing new things in an interactive and fun way. An absolute must for Vienna visitors but also highly recommended for locals.

loved the tour I did - even the locals in our group, including me, learned a lot about their own city and history in a light and fun way. Organizers are very engaged and help out if need be. don´t use your phone to enjoy the Robert Langdon-like treasure hunt through historic vienna

This is a fun and educational way of discovering Vienna. The idea and setup is well thought-out and helps you learn a lot of interesting things in a way that I guess most people aren't used to when visiting a new city.
The staff is nice and friendly. I recommend.

A very interesting concept for getting to know a city - or getting to know it better. We booked the "Scary City" tour with friends. I, who has been to Vienna several times, saw and learned a lot of new things. To do this, we had to solve puzzles. We found these quite easy in a group - but it was definitely very entertaining.
