Highly recommendable tour for "foodies": great Austrian food in a lovely restaurant which your typical tourist wouldn't even find, an enthusiastic and very, very knowledgeable docent who makes the evening a great experience!

Our docent was extremely knowledgeable and flexible. We had a specific yet eclectic list of sites we wanted to visit in Vienna. Our docent was able to meet all our varied requests. She was very, very accommodating.

This tour was excellent. We only had three hours. The day was rainy, and I unreasonably requested a custom tour covering art, music, and history. Our docent, Gilles, did a wonderful job in providing just enough material to cover all of those topics, without hurrying or packing in too much information. Also, Gilles has a great way about him and... More

Hello Doug, We can sympathize with how difficult it is to pack everything in when your time in a city is limited. It's great to hear that you had the chance to slow down on your walk in Vienna and really soak everything in (although hopefully not the rain). Come back soon, we'd love to have you walk with us...

Our walk with Alexa, which became a private tour for my husband and me, focused on the Secession begun in Vienna in 1897 by artists Gustav Klimt, Koloman Moser, Josef Hoffmann, and others. We walked through the Museum of Applied Arts (MAK) and went out to see examples of Otto Wagner's architecture (and other design of the period) across the... More

After enjoying a Context walk in Florence, I was excited for two more fantastic tours in Vienna. Clemena at the Kunsthistorisches Museum and Marieta on the 1st District walk were both wonderfully welcoming, knowledgeable, organized and insightful. Looking forward to yet more great tours!

My husband and I loved this tour. The docent had such a depth of knowledge. The postal building was a revelation, the Klimt friezes were magnificent. A must do for anyone who loves the decorative arts and architecture of this period. Highly recommended

We enjoyed an afternoon at Wieninger Vineyard, a tasting tradition walk to multiple cafes. and a walking tour of the first district. The docents were excellent and these tours provided us a fuller Viennese experience.

My husband, sister and I attended the city/music tour with Frederico - he did an excellent job showing us the musical and other highlights of the city, and he even treated us to a piano 'concert' - he is an amazing pianist. We truly enjoyed the tour and highly recommend it!

Staying in Leopoldstadt

Neighbourhood Profile
Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city centre and take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old townhouses, churches, theatres, discount shops and ethnic restaurants. Head for Augarten via Karmelitermarkt, Leopoldstadt’s trendy marketplace. Baroque Augarten itself hosts a bizarre mix of manicured hedges and flowerbeds in front of a colossal World War II defense tower, the publicly accessible 300-year-old Augarten porcelain manufactory, the palatial boarding school and funky concert hall of the Vienna Boys Choir, and the modern art museum TBA21. At its opposite corner, The Prater not only houses the Giant Ferris Wheel but blends a bustling amusement park with lush woodland, perfect for a bike tour. Further east is the old derby racing ground of Krieau.
