LEISURE PROGRAMME

CITY TOUR – HAVE YOUR FIRST DATE WITH VIENNA

First dates with a city are always special. A little nervousness, tingling in the stomach, but above all anticipation. Discovering as much as possible would be nice, but no stress, three-four time is enough – especially on historical ground. What to expect? VIENNA. From St. Stephen’s Cathedral to the Hofburg Palace and the State Opera, we will show you all the postcard places and must sees of the city center. It’s important to make a good first impression after all. We are always by your side to ensure that your date goes well. If it does, we also organize weddings, but step by step.

MONDAY, 25 March, 2024: 10:00 AM (2h tour)

VIENNA HISTORY RUN – SPORTS MEETS HISTORY

Sport meets history. To understand the course of Viennese history, it’s best to just start running.
Whether you are a marathon finisher or a bloody beginner, everyone is welcome. Step by step we will explore the city together, with open eyes and ears – around the Ringstrasse, through parks and gardens. While we introduce you to exciting stories and historical backgrounds, you will not only get fitter, but also smarter. Let’s go!

GETTIN’ ARTSY IN VIENNA – WE INTRODUCE YOU TO THE KUNSTHISTORISCHES MUSEUM

The Kunsthistorisches Museum introduces itself. A real eye-catcher both inside and outside. The museum was built as a home for the artworks of the Habsburg Family. Because we are always visiting, it already feels like our second home – we just get along really well with the residents. Mr. Caravaggio from the first floor for example is super charming and Vermeer with his Dutch accent… just hilarious. In the meantime, we have also become such good friends with Mr. Rubens that he has even revealed the secrets of his masterpieces to us. Come on our highlight tour and we’ll be happy to show you around.

Available dates: 

SUNDAY, 24 March, 2024: 10:00 PM (2h tour)
WEDNESDAY, 27 March, 2024: 14:00 AM (2h tour)

COSTS: 30€ per person payable directly to Rebel Tours via the booking process (+ ticket for the Museum which is currently 21€)
MEETING POINT: Entrance Hall inside the Museum

HIDDEN TOUR – VIENNA IS A GEM

A walk through hidden gems full of exciting anecdotes and history. Turn left behind St. Stephen’s Cathedral, walk through the historical passages, past the open balconies and suddenly it’s quiet. There is neither the sound of the carriages nor from Schnitzels being pounded. It’s as if someone had turned off the Viennese city music. The centuries-old inner courtyards of the first district lie in the shadow of the grand buildings, yet they can still compete with them. From the infamous blood alley and Vienna’s oldest Inn to the site of the most famous ass-kick in the city’s history. Vienna as you have never experienced it before.

Available dates: 

SUNDAY, 24 March, 2024: 14:00 PM (2h tour)

COSTS: 30€ per person payable directly to Rebel Tours via the booking process 
MEETING POINT: Eissalon am Schwedenplatz (Franz-Josefs-Kai 17)
