This wonderful 4-hour Highlights of Vienna Accessible Driving Tour is the perfect way to experience the most and best of Vienna in the shortest amount of time! The tour combines a relaxing and convenient driving tour with opportunities to get out of the vehicle and experience different sites firsthand.
This accessible guided tour starts with your private, professional guide and accessible van meeting you at your centrally located accessible Vienna hotel. From there, you’ll head out on a memorable drive, starting with the Vienna Ring Boulevard, a grand circular road around the historic Innere Stadt district of Vienna.
As you are escorted around this beautiful city, your private guide will share fascinating history and memorable anecdotes that you won’t soon forget. See the spectacular Vienna State Opera and Stock exchange, be mesmerized by the historic Imperial Palace and experience the Vienna city Parliament building where the Austrian government is located. You’ll also pass by The Burg Theater, which serves as the National Theater, and the breathtaking City Hall, constructed from 1872- 1883 in a unique Neo-Gothic style.
This wheelchair friendly Vienna tour continues to Votivkirche (Votive Church, which is another Neo-Gothic masterpiece in Vienna. Following the attempted assassination of Emperor Franz Joseph in 1853, the Emperor’s brother Archduke Ferdinand Maximillian inaugurated a campaign to create a church to thank God for saving the Emperor’s life. You’ll also visit the Minoritenkirche (the Church of the Minorities), where your guide is eager to show you the beautiful replica of Leonardo da Vinci’s “Last Supper”. This is a life-size, 19th century piece created by Italian mosaicist, Giacomo Raffaelli.
Several other city highlights are covered in the second part of your tour; see the Prater with the Riesenrad (giant Ferris Wheel), enjoy spectacular views of the beautiful blue Danube, and visit the City Park with the famous Johann Strauss monument. Your guide will also take you to the famous Belvedere Palace. The palace is considered one of the world’s finest Baroque landmarks, with extensive and impressive gardens. From the upper side you will enjoy a splendid view over the entire old city of Vienna, and after this, your guide will escort you on a short stroll around the Belvedere park, while sharing secret stories and anecdotes about the place with you.
The final stop of the day will be another must see item in Vienna, the notorious Hundertwasserhaus. This unique apartment house stands as an expressionist landmark built after the idea and concept of Austrian artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser.
