Vienna Ghosts and Legends Tour

We'll meet at the indicated time at Helmut Zilk Square to begin this chilling tour of the mysteries and legends in Vienna. Are you ready?

First, we'll stop in front of the Vienna State Opera, an iconic building where we'll remember the expulsion of the Jews by the Nazis and how its structure was left after the bombings of World War II. This and many other gory facts hide behind this building's walls, so keep your eyes sharp.

Then, we'll walk along Augustinerstrasse to find out who Erzsébet Báthory was, nicknamed the 'Blood Countess', who murdered over 30 young women because of her obsession with retaining her looks.

During this tour, we'll pass past St. Joseph's Square and St. Michael's Square to reach the parish of the Friars Minor, where you can still see the cannonball holes from the war between the Habsburg Monarchy and the Ottoman Empire.

In our next destination, we'll unravel the hidden meaning behind the name of the House of the Five Murders and stop at the Am Hof square, the former site of public executions in the city.

But that's not all! We'll also discover the mysteries lurking at Hoher Markt, the Heiligenkreuzerhof building, the Schönlatern alley, and the 'bloody alley', where a massacre from the times of the Knights Templar took place.

Lastly, we'll arrive at St. Stephen's Cathedral - what is the significance of the gargoyles on its façade? Spirits and legends loom over this imposing temple.

After an hour-and-a-half route, the tour will end at the entrance to the church.
