As well as its grand historical architecture Vienna has many interesting modern buildings. This tour will show you the best of these and treat you to a cruise on the Danube so you can view the city from the water.
See some of the tallest places in town. These include the 65 meter giant Ferris wheel at the famous Vienna Prater fairground and the unmistakable Danube Tower, a sky-piercing structure 252 meters tall.
View the six Y-shaped towers of the United Nations Building – their authoritative style reflecting the seriousness of their purpose. Quite different are two exciting buildings designed by revolutionary Austrian artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser.
Hundertwasser, described by some as a ‘hippie trippy artist’, hated straight lines and loved plants and vibrant colors. You will see his signature style at the Hundertwasserhaus, where fully grown trees protrude from windows and all the apartments are painted different colors.
End your delightful half-day tour with a cruise on the Danube and enjoy seeing the city from another perspective.
