Dear Visitor,

Step into the joy of Advent in Vienna, the perfect festive backdrop for a guided walk in this year’s run-up to Christmas! We would like to take this opportunity to provide you with some preliminary information about the Tourist Guide Day 2017. We are looking forward to seeing you again then at the latest.

Christmassy Vienna – a walk in the Season of Advent

Since the middle of November, Vienna’s squares have been transformed into magical Christmas markets, charming young and old alike.

There is no escaping the Christmas atmosphere with the aroma of mulled wine, roasted almonds, and lots of other tasty delights filling the air. Immerse into this delightful festive season by taking a walk through the many venues with your own personal guide.   

You can use the >>Vienna Guide Service at any time to book an exclusive guided tour.

Save the date: International Tourist Guide Day 2017

Sunday, 19th February 2017: National Library

We would like to draw your attention to the upcoming Tourist Guide Day. The Vienna Guides will offer a wide-spanned programme in and around the National Library.

The baroque State Hall is among the most beautiful historical libraries world-wide. Emperor Charles VI. authorized the construction of this gem of secular baroque architecture as his court library. The architects were Fischer von Erlach father and his son. The magnificent ceiling frescoes are the work of Daniel Gran. Among the 200 000 books which are kept in the State Hall, is the private library which belonged to Prince Eugene and was integrated into the imperial collection having been purchased by the Habsburgs after the death of the prince.  

We are pleased to offer tours for our guests who have lost their sight or suffer from bad sight. These will take place in the Kunsthistorische Museum on 17th February.  

We recommend following exhibitions and events:
