City Walks
First City Walk:

Vienna at a 1st Glance

This City Walk provides a first impression of the Viennese and Austrian History. From Albertina Square along the Imperial Palace (Hofburg – the winter residence of the Habsburgs) right to St. Stephen’s Cathedral.
The ”Hofburg“ is the largest palace compound in Europe. No wonder – construction time was nearly 700 years. This walk will also lead us through historic parts of the inner city, which have close links to the former Imperial Era.

Second City Walk:

The Jewish Vienna in Leopoldstadt (2nd District)

A walk through the vanished world of Vienna's Jewish Quarter between the Danube and the Canal. Leopoldstadt, Vienna's second district, was once a hub of Jewish life. Some of the town's finest synagogues were to be found there, also a wide array of Jewish shops, clubs, theatres and coffeehouses, and the splendid Grain Exchange, focal point of Jewish commercial interests. Leopoldstadt was also a central-European stronghold of Zionism and Chassidism. Sigmund Freud spent his youth there, composers Arnold Schoenberg and Oscar Strauss were born there. This Jewish world was brutally destroyed in the Shoah, but new Jewish life has come back. On this tour we also follow the "Path of Remembrance" commemorating Jewish victims of the Nazi terror.

Fee: 18.00 €/person

Third City Walk:

Freud’s Vienna

Sigmund Freud spent almost 80 years of his life in Vienna. Together with his parents and siblings, he lived in Vienna’s second district – the famous “Leopoldstadt”. He attended school there and completed his diploma. As a young intern in Vienna, the General Hospital was both his place of work and his home. In autumn of 1891 he moved to Berggasse 19, where he lived until he escaped to England following the Anschluss with Nazi Germany in 1938. This address was the base for his psychoanalysis practice as well as for his stringent personal daily routine: going for walks, visiting coffee houses, and touring the various antique shops in the outer districts…..
Join us as we trace the path of his life and travel in time to “Freud’s Vienna”.
