As we turn back toward the city’s heart, we’ll discuss what drew artists, musicians, and authors to Vienna, and introduced a strong sense of Viennese culture. Our final stop will be at the Stephansdom, Vienna’s cathedral, an architectural marvel of Gothic design and an icon of the city’s centuries of survival in the midst of political and religious upheaval. By the end of our time together, we’ll have a sense of the many layers of history that have built up over centuries and make the city what it is today.

Yes, certainly! This walk can be booked on a private basis for any day, any time. In winter (November-February) it's better not to start later than 1:30-2:00 pm because it gets dark by 3:30-4:00 pm.
