Exploring Vienna

Vienna has everything from tours to horse-drawn carriage rides, so if you are looking for a guided tour of the city you will find something to suit you. Bus tours are good if you're very short on time and want to pack in as much as possible, while the walking tours are perfect if you are are interested in learning more on a specific topic.

Fiaker - More of a tourist novelty than anything else, a Fiaker is a traditional-stype open carriage drawn by a pair of horses. Drivers generally speak English and point out places of interest en route. Lines of horses, carriages and bowler-hatted drivers can be found at the Stephansplatz, the Albertinaplatz and at the Vienna Hofburg.

Learn about the many faces of the city. Discover her secrets. During guided walks or with your own personal guide, during sightseeing trips by bus, boat, streetcar, bicycle or during torchlight tours through Vienna’s underworld ...

Guided walks, i.e. discoveries on foot, are offered, among others, by the “Walks in Vienna” (Wiener Spaziergänge): find them on the Event Database and the monthly program put out by the Vienna Tourist Board. They offer set dates and a great variety of topics: from “The Musical Capital of the World” to “Art Nouveau and Turn of the Century” to “Paths of Pleasure in Old Vienna.” If you prefer things really personal, let one the Vienna Guides show you around the city - you'll find a "suitable" city guide in our Guide List .
