Private Half-Day History Walking Tour in Vienna: The City of Many Pasts

Your tour begins at Michaelerplatz where the Hofburg the Habsburg’s imperial palace and seat of power since the thirteenth century dominates the square. Clockwise from the palace is the green and gray Loos House designed by Austrian architect Adolf Loos (1870 1933).From there the tour continues down Kohlmarkt and the Graben
From $390.00
 
3-hour Small Group Vienna Wine Walk
"Vienna is buzzing with wine bars and vinotheks which offer fantastic arrays of Austrian wine (including home-grown Viennese wine). This tour will introduce you to both the wines of Austria and to some of our favorite neighborhood drinking holes. You’ll meet your guide (a certified sommelier and passionate enthusiast of Austrian wine) at a central location but the wine bars visited will be in residential neighborhood: places where locals meet after work to catch up with friends. You’ll also visit one bar at the buzzing Naschmarkt where people-watching is as much a part of the scene as the wine. You will taste a different Austrian wine at each location (as well as a selection of local cheese and charcuterie at one place) while you discuss the regions grape varieties styles

Hundertwasser Tips (9)

Hundertwasserhaus,Vienna

Fondest memory The Hundertwasserhaus is an apartment house in Vienna, Austria, built after the idea and concept of Austrian artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser with architect Joseph Krawina as a co-author. This expressionist landmark of Vienna is located in the Landstraße district on the corner of Kegelgasse and Löwengasse.

Kunsthaus

Favorite thing I can see why the residents are annoyed with all the tourists. I felt uncomfortable gawping at someone's place of residence. This is why I usually don't take sightseeing tours. All the tour buses dropped off their entourage on the embankment a few 100 metres from the complex, and it literally was being dropped off with one coach coming, another going. This at a constant rate.

Art or.... ?

Favorite thing The complext contains 50 apartments of various sizes. There is also a terrace cafe, doctor's surgery and a health food store.

Outside the complex where most of the tourists gather to take pictures (like me) there are souvenir shops selling postcards and other knick knacks.

Hundertwasser

Favorite thing These houses are today used by the local authority as part of housing projects. Most residents actually being artists.

Once it was possible to view some apartments, but with the burgeoning crowds the residents have become unhappy and are now unwilling to show their apartments anymore.

Hundertwasser House

Favorite thing As our stay in Vienna was a short one we decided to take a sightseeing tour with one of the companies that advertise outside the State Opera. "Vienna Sightseeing"

We decided on the Panoramic City Tour with Boat Ride on the Danube. As it was so hot we thought it might cool us down.

We started off by taking the coach round parts of Vienna, included was a tour of artists' Friedensreich Hundertwasser's residential complex.

Favorite thing See the Houses designed by the architect Hundertwasser: Hundertwasser-House
(1977-1986 )
an unusual house that does not correspond to
the usual cliches and norms of academic architecture.
You have to see it to believe it.
His philosophie:
Some people say houses consist of walls. I say houses consist of windows. When three window types of three different houses belong to one house, it is seen as a violation of the racial segregation of windows. Why? Each individual window has its own right to life.'

Favorite thing HUNDERTWASSERHAUS
This municipal housing building was build in 1985 by the artist F. Hundertwasser who wanted to live up the rigid architecture of its time. And he succeed, indeed!!
Everything in this building is curved, colourful, creative. You can't visit the flats (they are inhabited) but you can see the postcards of some rooms in the shop below.
Lowengasse/Kegelgasse. U-Bahn Rochsug (U3)

Look at the 'Funny House'

Fondest memory This is a house that was built to show an alternative approach to architecture. There is a synonymos for assymetria. Can you imagine a building with no straight lines? Well, rooms inside have the plain ground, and vertical walls (as it is said; I cannot prove or decline this, because I was not inside), but exterior is worth to name the building a 'Funny House'. As you can see, it is not only assymetric, it is also painted in a plenty of colours, that adds a little bit crazy element in the whole picture
