The tour was well attended, despite the late hour. Our guide was well prepared and had a lot of knowledge. Not everything was scary for informative. I expected more spooky legends, I got adverts for other museums. That bothered me. I still had fun, learned a lot of new things, even without the scary effect.

The tour was a lot of fun due to a dedicated, very passionate and enthusiastic tour guide who was also able to answer every individual question competently. This made the tour a great experience despite the small group size and low temperatures, which also gave you a different view of Vienna. Always my pleasure!

Two hours of history of a different kind

The meeting point was the Swiss Gate inside the Vienna Hofburg. The tour led from here through various squares and alleys to St. Stephen's Cathedral. At selected places, our guide told interesting stories about events that took place at these places. Something like this is not offered to a "normal" tourist when visiting Vienna, nor is it taught in any school history class. So it pays off to book such a tour if you want to get to know Vienna from a different side
