Hidden corners & tranquil courtyards in Vienna’s historic centre
This tour will take place in the historic centre of Vienna. Although this is the busiest part of Vienna, buzzing with people, there are still some hidden corners to discover: small alleys, parts of the old fortification that protected the town for centuries, charming Biedermeier houses, quiet courtyards and “Durchhäuser” (literal translation “through-houses”) – the typical passageways where two or more adjacent courtyards create a practical shortcut between two parallel streets. The passing pedestrian is often unaware of their existence.
Join us on this walking tour off the beaten track. Hidden corners and lots of anecdotes about Vienna and the Viennese will make this city walk an unforgettable experience.
This Walkshop takes place on Tuesday and Friday
Duration: 3 hours
