Vienna Art Nouveau: 3-Hour Guided Walking Tour

6. Vienna Art Nouveau: 3-Hour Guided Walking Tour

During the late 19th century Vienna experienced a rapid population expansion, and a modern system of public transportation became essential. The city’s leaders engaged urban planners to draw up metro lines to connect the suburbs with the city center along the Ringstrasse. The architect chosen for this assignment was Otto Wagner. From the beginning, his aim was to create a metro design that would be iconographic, easy to recognize, and highlight Vienna’s cosmopolitanism. It was not surprising that he chose to work in the international avant¬-garde Art Nouveau style. On this 3-hour guided tour you’ll visit 2 of the remaining stations, where you’ll begin a discussion about Viennese Art Nouveau and its ideological underpinnings. Starting out at the beautiful pavilion at Karlsplatz, you’ll visit the small Wagner Museum and then walk to the Stadtpark station, which is the best-preserved of the original metro stations still in use. Your next metro stop is Kettenbrücke station. Along the way you’ll visit the famous Sezession House, the icon par excellence of Viennese Jugendstil. You’ll also see 2 beautiful apartment houses designed by Otto Wagner. Learn more about the philosophy behind Art Nouveau and consider the symbols and materials favored by its practitioners. From Kettenbrücke station, step onto the metro for your last stop, which is a visit to the imperial station. This outstanding building was erected outside Schönbrunn solely for the emperor to use. The crown jewel of the line, this station had a symbolic meaning as well, namely to show critics of Vienna’s metro that the emperor supported the line. Note the methods used by Wagner to translate the generally bourgeois style of Art Nouveau into an aesthetic with imperial grandiosity.

Good, friendly guide (Marco) who came up with many facts about the city. But above all, the feeling of the city came across, not just the dates and architectural styles. Nice to do on your 1st day so that you get a feeling where everything is, you can estimate your distances better and you can immediately cross some sights off your list. It was also nice that we could leave our luggage there, as there was no time to go to the hotel after arriving in the city. Message sent via this system and was called almost immediately by the bicycle shop

Brilliant! We ended up having a private tour as there was just my husband and me booked. The guide, Horst, was brilliant and very knowledgeable. He made sure we were comfortable on the Segways before we set off. We saw more of the sights in Vienna than we were expecting, and less of the Danube, but we were happy with that. Using the Segway was more physical than we expected but lots of fun. We would definitely recommend it.

We had such an amazing adventurous time. Our tour guide was Horst and if you want a lot of laughter, try him as a guide. he was also very knowledgeable in the field and very friendly.
