DescriptionTogether with the Maria-Theresia-Platz and Heldenplatz squares and the Hofburg Palace, the former imperial stables (today’s Museums Quarter) are part of one of the most important historical ensembles in the city, one which provides an excellent illustration of Vienna’s turbulent history. During the construction of the grand Ringstrasse in the second half of the 19th century, the architects Gottfried Semper and Carl Hasenauer wanted to bring these sites together into a majestic “Kaiserforum.” This tour retells their idea as an urban narrative, with tales of the Ottoman and Napoleonic sieges of Vienna, of knights and revolutionaries, hens and heroes, monarchs and fascists, everyday life in times of war and peace, masterpieces and collections, artists at the easel and on the football pitch, and much more besides. Covering broad sweeps and fascinating details, over the course of 1.5 hours it brings the changing fate of Vienna and Austria to life.
