Vienna's Former Textile Quarter This Tour is suitable as a walking Tour
Vienna in the Shadows of the Ringstrasse

Although a part of the ambitious urban expansion of the 1870s in the large area of the city fortification belt and ramparts, the neighbourhood between St. Rupert's, St. Mary's-on-the-Riverbank (Maria am Gestade) and Theophil Hansen's Stock Exchange (Börse) has always stood in the shadows of the Ringstrasse. We want to bring it into the limelight and introduce you to its eventful history from medieval suburb to Jewish Textile Quarter, and eventually hub of Vienna's nightlife. On this illustrated walk we tell you about the medieval salt barges moored along the branch of the Danube that once flowed through Salzgries street, take you into one of the oldest churches of Vienna, allow you to marvel at Theophil Hansen's Stock Exchange, explain what ecclectic architecture is all about, and talk about one of Vienna's most infamous addresses, the Gestapo headquarters on Morzinplatz and the expulsion of the quarter's Jewish population.
