Self-Guided Walking Tours to Explore Vienna, Austria

Vienna is a fairy tale book, and you can walk around the pages that you like the most. Teeming with imperial history, musical and architectural heritage, the Austrian capital has a lot to see and do. If you are visiting for the first time, our two introduction walks (Walk I + Walk II) will take you to the most essential sights. Make sure not to miss a stroll through the atmospheric, largely pedestrianised Old Town, and take time to appreciate the city's charming Art Nouveau landmarks (Art Nouveau I + Art Nouveau II). Special walks dedicated to Vienna's most famous residents – Johann Strauss, Gustav Klimt and Mozart – will help gain a more complete understanding of their lives and work.

In all, we have prepared 12 self-guided walks for you to explore Vienna, which cover everything from world-class architecture and museums to shopping opportunities. Not only that, but you can also create your own walk with the attractions that interest you most and even set your hotel as the walk's starting point!

How it works: Download the app "GPSmyCity: Walks in 1K+ Cities" from Apple App Store or Google Play Store to your mobile phone or tablet. Each walk comes with a detailed tour map as well as photos and background information for the featured attractions. The app's navigation functions guide you from one attraction to the next. The app works offline, so no data plan is needed when traveling abroad.
