    What to Expect
    Meet your guide in central Vienna and take off on foot through the city. Learn the fascinating stories of Vienna’s history, culture and politics as you travel, tracing back to its Roman roots and involvement in the world wars.

    Pass the city’s historic landmarks, walking through Heldenplatz (Heroes' Square), where Adolf Hitler made his 1938 annexation speech. Admire the iconic landmark of St Stephen’s Cathedral, a beloved mark of Viennese freedom, as well as the Sacher Café, known for its delectable chocolate cake. 

    Visit the Hofburg Imperial Palace, built in the 13th century and the former residence of the monarchs of the Habsburg dynasty. You’ll also stop at the Spanish Riding School, a center for classical dressage.

    After exploring the city’s grand structures and small streets, your tour will conclude at St Stephen’s Cathedral.
