Walk in the footsteps of ancient legends and modern myths, and see the city from a different perspective. Discover the background of various myths, but consider this: behind every story is a nugget of truth. You may even find some answers to questions that come up along the way.

Find out whether witches or even vampires wreaked havoc in the city, learn about the role Vienna played in the beginning of the “Dracula” novel, and discover which buildings in the city are the most haunted.

You won't see anything new or interesting, just hear stories.

I kind of expected we would be walked to interesting sights "off the beaten trail". Maybe into some cellar or see some tucked away building. But nope. Just the stuff you will walk by during the day anyways. The stories were a bit long but still interesting. I'd say this tour should be cut in half (1 hour instead of 2) and drop the price a bit and it would be perfect. As is though, I wasn't disappointed that we did it, but it wasn't what I was expecting.

Very interesting and well-documented legends of Vienna!

Very interesting and well-documented legends of Vienna! It was my first time in a night tour and it surpassed my expectations. You will get to know the old town form a different perspective, based on the myths and fears of antique European societies contrasted with recent historical and scientific research.
