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!

Our greeter was so thoughtful and knowledgable. We had a great time. We would like to thank "Vienna Greeters" for such a wonderful initiative. Keep up the good work.

Very knowledgeable, friendly and full of wonderful anecdotes. Learned a lot about Viennese culture, it’s historical figures and landmarks.
— Diana, London
We had a wonderful time with our greeter. He is a very interesting person, plenty of knowledge and very kind (like all the Austrian people). I think it was one of the most interested walk we made during our staying in Vienna.
— Ariel, Kfar Saba
Our greeter was very informative and helpful on the walk. We had a great conversation, and I felt more comfortable in the city after the walk. Our conversation and simple tour of the city was a great introduction to Vienna.
— Katherine, Covington, USA
Our Greeter was lovely in every way. He was well organised, knowledgeable, kind, and thoughtful. He gave us insights into the Innere Stadt that we would not otherwise have been aware of had we simply done the walk on our own.
— Michael and Jean, Sheffield, UK

— Vasily, Yaroslavl, Russia
Our greeter was a very kind, well-prepared and open-minded guide. He knew Vienna well and also would give us some tips for the next day. We hope to meet him next year.
— Marta, Amsterdam
Our greeter was amazing! He knows so much about Vienna. He even knew the architect of our building that was off the beaten path. This was a highlight during our visit. I would definitely recommend!
— John, Salt Lake City
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. We learned so much about the history and culture of Vienna, including many little known secret spots and facts. Our greeter asked about our interests in advance and then customized our tour to fit our group. ... We highly recommend Vienna Greeters!
