Vienna has to offer all sorts of artistic directions. Selected neighborhoods show the architectural variety.
Welcome to my wonderful Vienna!
Welcome to Vienna, the city of music, art and culture in the heart of Europe. Accompany me to discover the city’s mysteries, the hidden corners, the secret passageways and cellars which are often overlooked, but which document a nearly 2000-year long history. The guided tours reveal social and economic backgrounds which make Vienna’s cityscape, its personalities and its society come alive in a historical context. An experience for all five senses, always with contemporary references.
Due to the COVID-19 regulations, guided tours can take place from May 19, 2021. I look forward to seeing you again on my tours.
Here you will always find the latest news.
