Why take this tour?

Listen to highlights of Vienna’s musical masterpieces on headphones along with expert commentary from your music historian guide on a walking tour that helps you discover the world’s most famous composers: Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven among others. This 3-hour Vienna music tour takes you by the major sites where these legends lived and performed. You’ll explore monuments built to honor them in the “City of Music.” As a counterpart, we examine the impact of the Habsburg family’s patronage on Vienna’s development into the world capital of classical music. Visit Stephansdom, performance venue for Haydn and Mozart, Salieri and Vivaldi. Stroll by Mozarthaus where Mozart wrote many of his famous operas and instrumentals. Pass by Beethoven’s monument and explore his erratic life, living in sixty apartments in Vienna. Pass by the palace where Archduke Rudolph took piano lessons with Beethoven. Consider the musical dominance of Vienna at the legendary State Opera House and Musikverein.
