For some people, an ideal tour of a place they visit is by taking the bus or a rental car. There are others, however, who prefer a more unique way of exploring the attractions around such as doing a bike tour or taking a cruise.
But perhaps a more personal way to visit the tourist spots is going by foot. If you’re heading to Vienna, make sure you do a walking tour that can take you to some of the city’s hidden gems. Vienna has small streets and vistas that connect the famous attractions the reason why a guided walk can be the best tour for you.
This guided tour by foot takes around two and a half hourus around the Austrian capital. Popular spots you can visit are the Ringstrasse, the Sacher cafe (known for its delicious Sacher Torte chocolate cake) and St. Stephen’s Cathedral (Vienna’s symbol of freedom).
There are various benefits to be gained from a walking tour. For one thing, you get to see the landmarks up close and personal at a relaxing pace letting you see the details of the buildings from the exterior to the interior.. You also get to see the locals who may be walking on the streets as well.
