Full description
Explore Vienna's medieval past by embarking on a quest on a mobile phone app. Uncover Vienna's history in a unique way by solving riddles and following clues to complete your challenge.

Download the free Questo app on to your mobile phone and begin your self-guided tour at the starting point. Then, head off to discover Vienna's taverns and narrow medieval streets.

Unearth traces of the greatest tragedy in Vienna's history, the plague, as you are guided by the bizarre story of the city's most famous balladeer, Marx Augustin. Learn more about the man locals call Lieber Augustin (Dear Augustin) because of his charming humor in bitter times.

Unlock secret stories of the places you visit every time you solve a clue or riddle. Upon the successful solution of a clue, you will receive exact directions to the next location, removing the need for a map, GPS, or guide for your city exploration adventure.

For larger groups, one person can purchase access for the entire group by selecting the number of people in the group. All group members will be able to play the city game on their smartphone. Alternatively, each person can purchase their own ticket.

You can play as a group and solve the clues together as you walk, or you can split into smaller groups/teams and compete against the others. Each person can also play on their own, separate from the group, and meet the group at the end.

I highly recommend this tour. You are independent, but not lost, the instructions are very clear and you get the chance to discover some nice places. I would suggest starting it in the first part of the day; the story leads you to charming Vienna corners and landmarks. You will need some time to wander the streets, take photos, stop for a coffee or lunch and visit some nearby attractions. At the end of the day, you will want more. :)

So many things to do and see in Vienna that we felt we didn't really know where to start. We only had a few days. Found this tour and thought it might be a good way to explore the city. The process was smooth....just paid the money (extremely reasonable compared to the likes of open top buses etc) downloaded the app and off we went. We meandered around the streets if Vienna solving the clues and marvelling at all to be seen along the way. The story of Augustine was both informative and fun. Had a lovely stop at an old Vienese coffee house where some famous people had called before us....not giving anything away. Lovely way to see the city on foot with the added fun of solving clues along the way.
