    Oh we had so much fun! We had 5 adults and 4 children and everyone enjoyed themselves. I feel like a got a good overview of some of the history (although it was a little hard to follow when using a translated audio guide, I got distracted by the German audio. But other than that, everyone was nice and helpful and they made sure to have a chair for my mom (who had a broken leg) the whole time.

    This was a fun activity, unusual in that it was both entertaining and educational . We were led from room to room that had different interactive focuses. In one room we sat in a theater and experienced the 15 th century bubonic plague as it spread via rats that scurried over St Stephens Cathedral’s exterior . Another room led us through the bombing of fields in Austria during World War I .

    Novel and hugely entertaining guide through the many ages of Vienna. The 5-D cinema is brilliant. My kids loved all of it. The guide was great and all the staff were very kind and friendly. We arrived late for our booking, and they slotted us into the next show without any problems - much appreciated!
