Vienna First Impressions
Vienna First Impressions ( 2 Hours )
During this tour you will see the most impressive buildings of this wonderful city. On the RINGSTRASSE we pass the HOFBURG (the imperial Habsburg winter residence), the two MUSEUMS, the PARLIAMENT, the TOWN HALL, the BURGTHEATER, the UNIVERSITY and finally the VOTIVKIRCHE. Then we will visit the oldest part of the inner city, which the big sight-seeing coaches cannot enter. Passing the FREYUNG with the SCHOTTENKLOSTER (an old monastery), the square AM HOF, the JUDENPLATZ, and the CLOCK MUSEUM, we will reach the very centre of the town, ST.STEPHEN`S CATHEDRAL. Before reaching the DANUBE CANAL (Little Danube), we pass by the HOHER MARKT (ancient square) with the world famous ANKER-UHR (noon time historical figure-show). We continue to another Viennese landmark, the RIESENRAD (The big ferris-wheel) and the WURSCHTELPRATER ( a fun-fair). From there it is not very far to the river Danube. On our way back to the hotel we will see the impressive buildings housing the United Nations, the DANUBE TOWER and the HUNDERTWASSER-HAUS. This tour may be subject to alterations, if you wish.
