Discover the real Vienna, off the beaten track!
You can now put your guidebook away. On our tour of discovery through the city of Vienna you will receive an insight into real Viennese life. We will take you through the 1st, 8th and 9th districts, the centre of Vienna, and show you not only the classical sights but also provide you with lots of insider tips and tell one or another (amusing) Viennese anecdote.
In case you are wondering what a “Grätzl“ tour is: the “Grätzl”, an Austrian synonym for the “immediate surroundings”, can be mainly found around Vienna’s first municipal district, which is how large Vienna originally was within the city walls. What were once villages on the outskirts of the city are today Vienna’s hip and trendy districts.
