Hietzing - The Village in the Shadow of the EmperorsThis Tour is suitable as a walking Tour
Where Johann Strauss triumphed and Gustav Klimt Died

Originally, Hietzing was a modest wine-growing village at the foot of the southern Vienna Woods. With the presence of the monarchy at Sch÷nbrunn, imperial summer residence since the 1700s, Hietzing became the coveted summer resort of the nobility and lower gentry, later also of the business elite, of successful artists such as Egon Schiele or Gustav Klimt, and whoever wanted to escape the heat of the city. Walk where Johann Strauss Jr. gave his first concert, where Emperor Franz Joseph put up his guests, where Josef Hoffmann built one of the icons of Modernist architecture, and where Gustav Klimt died and lies buried.
