Walk in the footsteps of ancient legends and modern myths, and see the city from a different perspective.

You won't see anything new or interesting, just hear stories.

I kind of expected we would be walked to interesting sights "off the beaten trail". Maybe into some cellar or see some tucked away building. But nope. Just the stuff you will walk by during the day anyways. The stories were a bit long but still interesting. I'd say this tour should be cut in half (1 hour instead of 2) and drop the price a bit and it would be perfect. As is though, I wasn't disappointed that we did it, but it wasn't what I was expecting.

Very interesting and well-documented legends of Vienna!

Very interesting and well-documented legends of Vienna! It was my first time in a night tour and it surpassed my expectations. You will get to know the old town form a different perspective, based on the myths and fears of antique European societies contrasted with recent historical and scientific research.

A lot of fun

We really enjoyed this tour and Vienna by night! Our tour guide was really nice and she gave us quite a lot of info about old buildings and historic happenings connected to them, as well as stories that were told were you don't know if they are true or not. Very fun tour and a little different form the usual tourity stuff.
