Full description
Walk through the former Jewish and the Greek district, past Vienna's oldest "Beisl" (restaurant) to the wonderful Heiligenkreuzerhof, in which some Roman constructions are still preserved. See narrow streets, old craft workshops, and other historical buildings.  Listen to fascinating stories about the old university, and tales of those who studied there. Learn about the history of musicians associated with the city such as Schumann, Haydn and Schubert.  Finally, admire the old university church with its brown-golden marble splendor. This magnificent building - together with the Jesuit theater and the university - was once supposed to impress protestants and make them return to the Catholic Church. The Jesuits, who were called to Vienna by the Hapsburg family, stayed influential until they were banned by Maria Theresia in 1772. Today they are responsible for the church once again.

      Mal auf touristischen Abwegen

      Die Tour hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Wir wurden durch viele Gassen geführt, die einem als normaler Tourist so nicht "auf dem Weg liegen". Auch das jüdische und das griechische Viertel waren sehr interessant, zumal wir gar nicht von deren Existenz wussten. Dazu ein paar interessante Erklärungen und der Rundgang war perfekt.

      Sehr empfehlenswert!

      Frau Kindl hat uns sehr engagiert und kompetent die Wiener Seele näher gebracht. Wir haben viel kennengelernt, was uns bei früheren Aufenthalten entgangen war. Fakten gepaart mit Anekdoten machten den Spaziergang zu einer sehr angenehmen, abwechslungsreichen und informativen Führung. Ein ganz kleines Minus: sie erzählte sehr zügig und gab keinen Raum für Rückfragen - erst ganz am Ende waren Fragen erwünscht. Bis dahin hatte ich diese aber aufgrund der zwischenzeitlichen anderen Informationen bereits vergessen. Aber wie gesagt, dies nur als winziger Kritikpunkt, das sollte niemanden von dieser Führung abhalten!
