Vienna: Heldenplatz Square and Gardens Walking Tour

10. Vienna: Heldenplatz Square and Gardens Walking Tour

Embark on a guided walking tour around Heldenplatz in Vienna. Marvel at the iconic square and gardens as you stroll around. For a long time, there was very little private green space in the city. Except for the so-called glacis, there were no public parks of any kind. After parts of the city wall were blown up at Napoleon's behest in 1809, new open spaces suddenly appeared. This laid the foundation for new green and garden areas. Of course, these gardens and parks did not allow for strolling as we know it today. But what did it look like there at that time and for whom were these green oases intended then? Come with me and discover two of the most beautiful parks in downtown Vienna!

Robert was an excellent guide and we really enjoyed his commentary at the various spots we visited around Vienna. He showed a lot of the highlights of the city and provided great background on those, but also included more unusual locations such as the graffiti walls along the (not-the-Danube) canal and the Gaudì-ish Hundertwasser Village. The bikes were in excellent condition, a basket was provided for me on request, the weather looked iffy so everyone was given a poncho (in the end it did not rain), and the three hour tour was the perfect amount of time. Highly recommend!

Horst is the guide with the most. He showed us around Vienna for three very entertaining and informative hours and made an effort to connect with all of the riders personally. Truly a lovely experience, that gave us a good lay of the land and an understanding of the history and culture of Vienna and how to get around. Thank you Horst!

Not only because it was 30° warm that day, but also thanks to guide Annette Schminke, who presented us with a relaxed, always confident and experienced presentation of this beautiful city and its lovely people, the bike tour was the right decision and a forgettable experience . Again any time!

It is a great experience to cycle through Vienna and discover the city. Horst in particular made the tour even more interesting with his funny but really informative sayings.

Very relaxed and interesting tour. 100% recommended. It's great fun and is director at the same time. ‍♀️
