Private tour: Vienna with a Viennese


Being a native Viennese, I'd love to show you the highlights of my beautiful hometown - all that in one day! After pick-up, we circle the Ring to view the impressive palaces and main monuments such as the City Hall, the Parliament and the Burgtheater. We leave the old town behind and head to Schönbrunn, where we enjoy a walk in the park. The Gardens always show their beauty, no matter what the time of year. During Christmas season, there will be a chance to visit the charming Christmas market in front of the Palace for some mulled wine or punch to warm up. Optionally, the Palace can be visited as well (Please contact me beforehand if you wish to do so. The tickets need to be reserved in advance because of the great demand, especially in high season. The visit of the Palace is not included in the price). Having explored Schönbrunn, we take a ride through the famous Vienna Woods all the way to Kahlenberg. From top of the hill, we enjoy great views on Vienna, the Danube and the surrounding hill chains. After all these activities it is time for a break in a wine tavern in Grinzing, where you can try wine of the region and some snacks (optional, not included in the price).

Why take this tour?

We will circle the Ring with its impressive palaces and monuments and head on to Schönbrunn Palace & Gardens, where we take a walk in the park. After exploring the area, we pass by the Vienna Woods and enjoy amazing views on the city and the Danube from Kahlenberg. We end the tour in a traditional wine tavern in Grinzing, one of the old wine towns of Vienna besides Nussdorf and Neustift. Please note: I am not a licensed city guide (only hiking guide), so I will not be able to tell you about the history of Vienna or specific details. Being born and raised in Vienna, this tour is about showing you the city from my personal perspective.

About operator:

Hi, I'm Karin. I'm the founder of Das Leben Spüren - Embrace Life, an outdoor activity organiser, offering guided hiking tours and excursions for travellers, expats and locals. Already before that, I voluntarily organised similar trips for a global expat network. I'm a professional hiking guide and have a master in tourism & leisure management. I love meeting people from all over the world as much as I love nature. Combining both and showing travellers the natural beauties of my home country is what I enjoy most. Besides my passion for nature and exploring new trails, I love yoga, photography, gardening, fashion and delicious food. I was born and raised in Vienna, but lived, studied and worked in foreign countries, such as UK, Italy, France, US and Germany. On my tours, I invite participants to be present at the moment by finding joy and contentment in the sheer beauty of nature, rather than boring them with facts and figures.
