Vienna has many beautiful squares and you'll take in St. Michael's Square, St. Stephen's Square, and Josef's Square. Afterwar, learn about Vienna during World War II and see Parliament, City Hall, Imperial Treasury, and the National Library.

Very Informative in history of Vienna

Our guide, Herbert, was extremely knowledgeable on the history of Vienna, it’s people and rulers. Our family of four happened to be the only ones on the tour on this particular day and time, which made it feel like a very personalized experience.
