Stop At: St. Stephen's Cathedral, Stephansplatz 3, Vienna 1010 Austria

The spiritual and geographical heart of Vienna is the great St. Stephen's Cathedral. It's construction spans many centuries and styles.

Stop At: St. Rupert's Church (Ruprechtskirche), Morzin Platz on Ruprechtsplatz, Vienna 1010 Austria

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Judenplatz Holocaust Memorial, Judenplatz 8, Vienna 1010 Austria

Jewish history in Vienna is an interesting tale that must not be ignored while exploring the capital of Austria. Vienna is a tolerant and liberal city today, but it is not that long ago that the city was the scene of some of the most dispicable crimes ever done against fellow humans.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Graben and Kohlmarkt, Vienna Austria

The two shopping streets, Graben and Kohlmarkt, are among the most expensive streets in whole of Vienna. Big brands such as Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Cartier, Armani, Dior, Gucci, and Demel, are lined up one after the other. Their display of over-the-top products fit remarcably well in with the surrounding: at the end of one street stands the impressive Hofburg palace, and at the end of the other, the powerful baroque plague column. Both over-the-top experiences.
