5 out of 5 stars (2 reviews)

Description

On this walking tour in Vienna you will see where it all began! How did an Austrian postcard painter turn into the world’s most hated man? Where could Hitler and Stalin have met? Let us show you the scars of World War II and the remains of the divided city. Take a deeper look into the darkest days of Vienna’s history.

  • Heroe’s Square - The location where Hitler announced the annexation of Austria
  • Holocaust Monument - Commemorating the victims of the Austrian Jewish Community
  • Academy of Fine Arts - The university where Hitler wanted to study arts
  • Monument against war and fascism - Modern monument recalling terrible times

Itinerary

Our walk will begin at our meeting point in front of the Albertina museum, next to the State Opera House (Staatsoper). On this walking tour you will gain insight into what, where and why it all happened. Find out what and who influenced young Adolf Hitler’s mind, hear and see the impact of 53 bomb attacks with more than 100.000 on the city, learn what happened to the once enormous Jewish community of the city, see the only Synagogue that would survive the Nazi regime, and visit the Holocaust memorial. Let us tell you how Vienna was divided after the war, why it was the only city in the world where the Allied Powers managed a zone together, and why a Heroes' Monument of the Red Army remains in the city to this day.

We will stop by major historical landmarks and after this tour you will certainly have gained profound insights into the darkest days of our history. The “Hitler’s Vienna” walk is not to be missed!

" Great experience "
5 out of 5 stars
My family of four including our 10 and 8 year old really enjoyed this tour. Dieter was a fantastic guide and quite knowledgeable. The kids plan to return to their schools and provide a summary of all they learned!
" Very informative "
5 out of 5 stars
I felt like I had received an education following this tour which provided so much information on the man that was responsible for one of the darkest times in our history. Our tour guide (I’m sorry I’ve forgotten his name) has a background in journalism and was so knowledgeable! Initially I was apprehensive about going on this tour for the negative feelings that I anticipated it would evoke in me, but the tour is very factual and I found myself reflecting on these facts for a long time after. And it amazes me how one chosen megalomaniac can completely change the course of history by feeding into the hatred and irrational fears of the general population.
