A Fiaker-Ride through the city
The city’s horse-drawn carriages are as much a part of Vienna's traditions as the Sacher torte and Wiener schnitzel.
Day after day, they show tourists from all over the world Vienna's beautiful sights from a different and unique perspective. A ride on one of the two-horse carriages is the highlight of any visit to Vienna.
In a carriage and pair, surrounded by historic palais, you feel like travelling in time – back to the age of monarchy and the outstanding history of the city. Always featured by expert knowledge – only a few people know the city as the Fiaker do. The 150 horse-drawn carriage companies here in Vienna are happy to offer visitors the most convenient method of sightseeing.
The tour path goes past the Giant Ferris Wheel, along dark, mysterious lanes in Vienna's underground system and terminates at the Third Man Museum. Immerse yourself, with the help of the newest projection and lighting technology, in the world of sewer workers, film agents, smugglers and spies. The concierge would be happy to book you this unique Vienna city tour.

A true Viennese institution, Krapfenwadbad, called “Krawa” by locals, is as relaxing as a short trip to the beach. Under a shady pine forest and surrounded by Viennese families, enjoy a wonderful view over the whole city. For more than two centuries, the Viennese have come here for Vienna's highest bath and to cool down on hot summer days. Three pools, a playground and a beach volleyball court make this place perfectly suitable for everyone.
