      Vienna's history has been influenced and shaped by many different forces; the Celts, the Romans, the Ottomans, the Nazis, and – of course – the Habsburgs. 

      On this tour of Vienna's First District, you'll examine all these influences, examine how they impacted the development of the city, and discuss what drew composers, artists, and authors to Vienna.

      Your journey begins at the Romanesque St. Rupert's Church, the oldest church in Vienna, and ends at St. Stephan's Cathedral, where the exterior still proudly displays a symbol of Nazi resistance.

      To know Vienna one must understand all the layers that compose it. This tour is an excellent start.

      Full refunds issued for cancellations made 7 full days prior to the date and time of requested services. Cancellations made within the 7-day and 72-hour window will receive a 50% refund of purchase total. Purchases are non-refundable inside of 72 hours.
