What you'll do

The perfect way to explore Vienna's treasures and highlights! See Vienna in a different way and hear its fascinating stories from local tour guides and storytelling experts!

Vienna is effortlessly beautiful. To many newcomers, Vienna’s splendor is easily seen in the details of its palaces, the quiet holiness of its cathedrals, and the special tradition of its coffeehouses. But to us in Secret Vienna, the city, though truly a sight to behold on the surface, has a double portion of beauty tucked away and hidden. A kind of beauty that just needed to be shared with the world. You will see the best of the Austrian capital on this secret Vienna tour!

Wolfgang, Tatjana, Kathi or Chirstine will start from Albertinaplatz, a beautiful square with many secrets and a dark past. Then, we will take you to see the Hofburg palace, this is the winter palace of the Habsburg family. Another major treasure you will witness is the heroes square, a place where Vienna's most glorious and horrendous histories meet. The many other highlights we will show you include Michaelerplatz, Graben, Judenplatz, St. Stephen's cathedral and much more!

In this experience, you will hear stories from one of us, knowledgable and certified guides - Wolfgang, Tatjana, Kathi or Christine. After the tour, you will be probably shocked that 2 hours have passed by so fast. Join us and become a Secret Vienna explorer!

Nice to meet you! Exploring Vienna and its Secrets has always been my greatest passion. Our work as Secret Vienna explorers started in 2016 when we published a daily blog about the city. As our community in Vienna grew, we decided to transform the stories and secrets we uncovered into exciting tours in Vienna. Together with the local guides Wolfgang, Tatjana, Kathi, Chirstine & Co we take you on unique tours behind the scenes. We are living history and are collectors of books, artefacts or other historic objects. For us, showing you Vienna, both its highlights and its Secrets is the greatest mission of all. We are super excited to meet you and ensure you will have an unforgettable experience in our beloved city!

It was very nice of Sagi to still continue with the tour even given the COVID-19 situation. Even though there were only 3 participants the tour went on and we really do appreciate that. We had an amazing tour guide who has fantastic knowledge of the environment and culture of Vienna and we were really captivated by some of the histories and stories that were shared throughout the tour. Highly recommended tour to go for whenever you are in Vienna :)

Our guide, Wolfgang, made this tour magical. Vienna is a fantastic and Wolfgang’s love and pride of his home city comes through with enthusiasm and his extensive knowledge of it’s history and is delivered with warmth and humour. I would thoroughly recommend this tour.

Die Führung mit Wolfgang war super. Er erzählte viel über die Geschichte Wiens und gab dabei auch immer einen kleinen Einblick in sein Leben. Er bezog auch die Teilnehmer regelmäßig mit ein indem er Fragen stellte. Alles in allem hat es richtig viel Spaß gemacht ihm zuzuhören und mit ihm durch die Stadt zu gehen. Ich würde diese Führung noch einmal mitmachen.
