The Ottakring River - A River Goes UndergroundThis Tour is suitable as a walking TourThis Tour is ideal for school parties
Vienna's Forgotten River

Vienna has over 70 subterranean rivers. Once tributaries of the Danube, they were covered over in the course of urban growth, integrated into Vienna's extensive sewer system and largely forgotten. The Ottakringer Bach is one of them. Ottakring, now the city's 16th district, started its existance as a small village along its banks, the name of Maria am Gestade (St. Mary's by the Riverbank) goes back to the times when Tiefer Graben street used to be its riverbed. On this illustrated tour we follow parts of its hostoric and present course. Time of the year and day of the week permitting, we can end the tour with a look into the "▄berfallskammer" on Karlsplatz where it joins the main Wien River sewer, a spot well known from Carol Reed's cult classic "The Third Man".

Info:Sewer visit only possible Thursday-Sunday from May-October, early booking required, max. size of group: 20
