The River Wien - Vienna's Hidden River This Tour is suitable as a walking TourThis Tour is ideal for school parties
A Rivulet that has Written Town History

Insignificant as it may seem, the River Wien or Vienna River (Wienfluss) has many a story to tell about the city whose name it bears. Following its course from the U-Bahn station Pilgramgasse through Naschmarkt and across Karlsplatz to Stadtpark, this illustrated walk takes us back into the "good, old times" of the Vienna of the Industrial Revolution, when imperial grandeur coincided with appalling sanitary conditions (which eventually caused Franz Schubert's untimely demise). We talk about its taming, the fine examples of Art Nouveau along its embankments, and the construction of the tunnel which gained word fame as Harry Lime's hideout in the cult movie "The Third Man".

Info:Depending on the time of year and weather conditions, a look into the Wien River tunnel and the main sewer may be included in the tour.
