10:00 AM

Meeting Point

Hotel Pickup (for 1st, 3rd = Belvedere area, 7th, 13th and 14th district possible) or at Albertina Terasse as described

10:00 AM

Upstair's at the Terasse, in front of the Albertina Museum (= underneath the Archduke Albrecht Monument, see title picture)

The Tour starts with a beautiful Kodak picture view: State Opera House/ or the Metropolitan of Art why is it sitting exactly there? - Hotel Sacher (with its famous chocolate cake but has Sacher always been a hotel? What was sitting there previously in front of the Opera House? Helmut Zilk Platz with the Monument against War and Fascism as well as Palace Lobkwitz (the same Palace as in Prague? why is it so?) and mainly: what is the function of the street inbetween Opera House and Sacher Hotel.

The Albertina Museum is sitting on the south-east most tip of Hofburg. As part of Hofburg it has always been the Palace of the princess and princes especially the Governor of the Netherlands (but what is the Netherlands?). Today Albertina houses the largest graphic collection and printings of the world.

10:20 AM

Flour Market

The previously "Flour Market" (the square for the "staff of life") - has become the most important square of the inner city ever since the expansion of the inner city by the English tax payer. Why? Explore the peaceful and perhaps most beautiful square in Vienna with the most famous fountain of the city. Listen to the story about the Babenberger & the Hapsburg's life between death and birth, see the hidden secret of this almost genious square and understand why it is so famous to women.

10:30 AM

Mozart's area

Was Mozart Austrian? No! 99,9% of Austrian would deny. Come and listen to the story without having heart attack. We will be wondering through the lanes and squares which has still kept the previous shape with the same facade that has been well maintained. Walking through these narrow alleys next to listening to Mozart's story, you will also listen to some other interesting stories such as where does the "ball" come from or why was there a square called "the little Tuscany of Vienna"? Does "Moses" really has horns? Why is he decorated with horns?

10:40 AM

St. Stephan's Cathedral outside

Finally reaching the St. Stephan's Cathedral after wandering through Mozart's hood. It's all about symbolism! You will see all the symbolism with me from the outside and receive the necessary information for the inside, so that you can explore the interior of the cathedral on your own.

11:00 AM

St. Stephan's Cathedral interior

Tour ends by the iron gate facing the giant altar.

Ending Point

St. Stephan's Cathedral

Vienna - Legacy of Beethoven

Vienna
4 hours

There are so many interesting stories, books about maestro‘s life and great compositions to be studied as a Beethoven freak. Or, you may leave all the research and reading jobs to your professional tour guide. The Heiligenstadt Testament reflects Beethoven‘s despair over his increasing deafness and his continued desire to overcome his physical and emotional aliments. Heiligenstadt was situated far outside of city wall by then but it is a picturesque place within 19th district today.
