What you'll do

This is an intense adventure for the mind and the senses, a three in one experience only possible with an experienced local - three hours that immerse you in the culture and history of Vienna's past and present, as well the irresistible atmosphere of Vienna Christmas time. To warm-up, we'll meet in a typical Viennese "Kaffehaus" and have one of the endless variations of coffee that are typically offered, served by one of the famous gentlemen called "Herr Ober" dressed in formal black and white with a serious look and Viennese charm. We stroll through the "Inner City" of Vienna, a World Heritage site, and this way can experience and enjoy three things at the same time: > We discover the most impressive sights, learn about the history of Vienna from the Romans to the Austrian-Hungarian Empire that perished 100 years ago as well as the last Emporer's legendary wife Sisi > We take a closer look at how the most famous artists and musicians impacted and still impact the cultural life in Vienna and take a short look into some of the most unique museums and exhibitions to give you a taste which location would be interesting for you to maybe explore > We cross through Christmas Markets, clouds of delicious smells, parks with artfully enlightened trees and people enjoying ice skating - and end up with delicious "Punch" with (or without) berries and a surprising variety of flavors.

I'm from Vienna, Austria but have traveled about 50 countries and experienced different cultures. So my wife and I met people from abroad - and many visited us in Vienna in return. We picked them up, showed them around, organized activities and gave them a fully-fledged Vienna experience - and found this interesting and inspiring. This way our friends could use their time efficiently and had a local guide who took care of every aspect of their visit according to their areas of interest. After a while, we got more and more experience in organizing their visit and serving them as their hosts. When they told us how happy they were, we decided to offer our service to other travelers to Vienna. Our experience with other cultures came in quite handy and even if we hardly had known these people in the beginning, they always left as friends...

Where you'll be

The whole "Inner City" of Vienna is a world heritage region and worth exploring intensively. But you will also experience my favorite places and "secret" routes that lead us through historic and contemporary Vienna. You will gain insights into how the cultural and political past merge with life in today's most vibrant and up to date metropolis in the middle of central Europe - and find the best Christmas markets to bring you into a festive mood.
