The city offers a fascinating mix of hidden gems with long history, as well as new, underground, hip venues. My goal is to show you this side of Vienna - loved by the locals and ignored by the city-center crowding tourist groups. Each tailor-made tour will consider date and weather conditions, with the aim to take you off the beaten track. The journey enables you to sample the real local cuisine (free of tourist rip-off prices), enjoy modern coffeehouse culture and explore quirky bars. You will stroll along the paths less travelled to see nice street scenery, hidden squares and parks. Occasionally we will also go to hand-picked private locations, such as ateliers, aristocratic homes or typically Viennese turn-of-the-century apartments. This tour is best done at the beginning of your journey to explore Vienna, as it offers valuable insider knowledge of what to do in this city, which comes in handy for planning the rest of your stay. There is more to Vienna than Classic Music, Pastries and Old Buildings, discover it!
As a passionate foodie and a true ‘Wiener’, I love to constantly discover new treasures in the city, find out “what’s hot and what’s not”‘and avoid what has already entered the dreaded zone of the mainstream. Since I rent out a private room in my apartment, I have long been sharing my recommendations with my guests. From the very beginning, I could see how glad they were to have some “insider knowledge” about special places and hidden gems. As a result, I wish to offer my services to those who wish to wander off the beaten track and gain a unique experience of this city.

The places we visit are always a bit different, depending on the season, the weekday and the opportunities at hand. Like Viennese people we will go with the flow.
