The idea

Vienna Greeters welcome visitors to the city and take them on a free, personal, two-hour walk showing them the Vienna beyond the guidebooks and off the beaten track. 

Vienna Greeters are volunteers who love Vienna and are keen to share with you their enthusiasm and knowledge about the city. 

During your walk, you’ll discover the city on foot or using the excellent public transport network. Whether you’re visiting Vienna for the first time, or are a regular visitor, we welcome you to our city and look forward to showing you a part of “our” Vienna. 

Discover Vienna behind the scenes; hear what it’s like to live here; catch up on the latest city gossip and get to know the place in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. 

Come as a guest - leave as a friend!

We thoroughly enjoyed our time with our Vienna Greeter. She showed us many highlights of Vienna & offered great suggestions for places to visit. We were touched by her warmth & willingness to share her city with us. A terrific experience!

[Our greeter] was very friendly and informative.
— Jenni, Melbourne (October 2018)
All thoroughly enjoyable, informative and adjusted to our interests. When we showed particular interest we dallied, when we were less interested we moved on. [Our greeter's] range and depth of knowledge was impressive.
— Ann, Wirral (October 2018)
What an experience! We had the most wonderful walk around Vienna. [our greeter] was so friendly and informative and took us around such a variety of places. I cannot recommend Vienna Greeters highly enough.
— Judith, Sevenoaks (October 2018)
She was lovely. Answered all of our questions. I told her my husband was a slow walker and she made sure he found a place to rest. I would highly recommend using a greeter.

Really enjoyed the opportunity to get to know more about Vienna & Austria from a local & to be told about the history of some buildings other than the main sights.
— Carolyn, Essex (October 2018)
[Our greeter] was very knowledgeable about history and culture of Vienna and was enthusiastic to share his knowledge. He also invited us to email him if we had any further questions which was much appreciated. Thank you

I especially enjoyed the way in which [our greeter] gave us an historical architectural tour as being a semi-retired architect, this is my special interest.
