A Village in the Shadow of the Emperors – Hietzing Deutsche Version dieser Tour
<div>Originally, Hietzing was a modest wine-growing village at the foot of the southern Vienna Woods. When Maria Theresa chose Schönbrunn Palace as her summer residence in the 1750s, its neighbourhood became the coveted address of the nobility and lower gentry, later also of the business elite, of artists, and whoever could afford to escape the heat of the city. In 1850 it was incorporated into Vienna.<br><br>Walk where the ‘King of Waltz’ gave his first concert, where Thomas Alva Edison and Richard Tauber stayed during their visits in Vienna, where Emperor Franz Joseph had breakfast with his soulmate Katharina Schratt, and where Josef Hoffmann built one of the icons of Modernist architecture. Time permitting, we can also include in this walk Gustav Klimt’s last studio or the Hietzing Cemetery, the final resting place of celebrities such as Alban Berg, Otto Wagner, Gustav Klimt or Austrian Chancellor Engelbert Dollfuss. </div>
