  • Tour code: 3585AT005VS
Discover Vienna by night on a 3-hour sightseeing experience, led by a knowledgeable guide! After learning about the city’s monuments on a coach tour of the Ringstrasse, head up high for panoramic views from the Wiener Riesenrad, the ferris wheel that doubles as one of Vienna’s top vantage points. Soak up the nighttime scenery, and then finish with a glass of wine in a traditional Grinzing ‘heurige’ (tavern), where Viennese music mingles with the chatter of locals.

Highlights

  • See the sights illuminated at night
Start your evening with a hotel pickup from central Venice or alternatively, meet your guide near Kursalon Wien. Then, take to the streets of Vienna to see the nighttime cityscape from the comfort of your coach.

Where better to start than the Ringstrasse to see Vienna’s top attractions illuminated at night? Once considered the center of the Habsburg Empire, the Ringstrasse is now flanked by a bounty of important monuments including Vienna Rathaus, the Imperial Palace and more. Hear fun facts and historical anecdotes about the sights, and then hop off your coach by Prater Park for a ride on the Wiener Riesenrad ferris wheel.

Lit up in all its glory, the Weiner Riesenrad is not only a spectacular sight to behold at night; it’s also one of the world’s oldest operating ferris wheels, having been in operation since the late 1800s. Step aboard the historic attraction with your guide and savor the views over Vienna’s rooftops as you glide up to a dizzying peak of 212 feet (65 meters).

After your rotation on the wheel, return to your coach, and prepare to wind up your evening with a visit to Grinzing, a quirky neighbourhood known for its heurigen. Head inside one such tavern for a glass of local wine and savor the venue’s cozy surrounds and Viennese music. Where you finish your evening tour is up to you; either stay inside the heurige to enjoy more wine at your own expense, or finish with a drop-off at your Vienna hotel.

That was a nice experience. I strongly recomend it.

There were only two couples on this tour including us which made the tour a little more intimate. Obviously, the tour guide spend a lot of time with us and answered all our questions. The wine at the end of the tour and the restaurant with the violinist and accordion player were surely a highlight of this tour. They played any song we wanted, in english or otherwise. Great tour!
