Explore Vienna's charm and history on a walking tour, discovering iconic landmarks like Maria-Theresien-Platz, Burgtheater, St. Michael's Church, City Hall, Kunsthistorisches Museum, and more.


  • Feel the allure of imperial palaces and the elegance of baroque architecture
  • Find yourself surrounded by several prominent landmarks on Maria-Theresien-Platz
  • See the Burgtor, an arch commemorating Vienna and its allies' defeat of Napoleon
  • Follow your guide to Ringstrasse, home to important architectural masterpieces
  • Marvel at one of the city's oldest churches, the Romanesque St. Michael's Church


Embark on a walking tour of Vienna’s highlights. Traverse the expanse of Maria-Theresien-Platz, where the twin edifices of the Natural History Museum and the Art History Museum stand sentinel, flanking the grand statue of Empress Maria Theresa, while narratives of the square's past unfold. Follow the meandering path of Ringstrasse, once a bastion of medieval fortifications now transformed into a boulevard adorned with architectural marvels like City Hall, Parliament, Burgtheater, and Vienna State University, each a testament to Vienna's eclectic architectural heritage. Then, enter the regal domain of Kunsthistorisches Museum, housing royal artistry within a palatial façade. Continue to the neoclassical splendor of Burgtor, once part of the old defensive walls of Vienna, and the Hofburg cultural enclave. End your tour at Heldenplatz, a verdant expanse borne from the annals of history, and immerse yourself in the storied ambiance of St. Michael's Church, a venerable testament to Vienna's enduring legacy.
