» A tour around Spittelberg

Discover Vienna

Have you ever thought of taking a tour around the Spittelberg? Let us accompany you through this beautiful neighbourhood which is located right behind MuseumsQuartier. The area is famous for its romantic alleys and charming Biedermeier-style houses. However, in bygone days this neighbourhood was known as the “Mountain of Venus”, given the many small taverns where patrons could purchase more than just food and drink. Enjoy an outdoor guided tour to investigate the history of this enchanting area and its eventful past. 

Duration: 1,5 to 2 hours.

» A tour through the Central Cemetary Vienna

Discover Vienna

In 1874 Viennese citizen Jakob Zelzer was the first to be buried in the newly-opened Central Cemetery. Today this cemetery with more than 3 million graves is the largest in Europe (only Hamburg-Ohlsdorf is larger in area). Besides countless normal citizens the cemetery has the largest number of graves of celebrities: Musicians such as Beethoven, Schubert, Johann Strauss or Falco; actors such as Hans Moser, Theo Lingen or Curd Jürgens; painters, architects and sculptors and other luminaries are interred here next to Presidents of the Republic and Mayors of the city. Sectors for various religions – Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Islamic or Buddhist—offer people of all faiths the possibility to be buried here. Particularly impressive is the Art Nouveau Church of St. Charles Borromeo.

Duration: 1,5 to 2 hours.
