1. Vienna: Meet Strauss Private Guided Walking Tour
The first stop accompanied by your guide will be Theater an der Wien, where almost all of Strauss’ operettas had their premieres. On the way, see the Stadtpark Strauss’ golden memorial, with its intricate sculptural details. Be enraptured by this meditative space, and the background your guide gives it. Karlskirche at Karlsplatz is the church where Strauss said his wedding vows. Pass by mainstay the Vienna State Opera and enter the Old Town, where you'll end up at Strauss' official residence. Get a glimpse of his instruments, furniture, and paintings, in which his personal and musical lives merge in perfect harmony. Extend the tour to 4.5 hours to experience an exclusive evening concert of classical music in a marvelous venue such as Theater an der Wien, the State Opera, or Musikverein Concert Hall. Concerts are performed by some of the titans of the Viennese classical scene, and feature works by Beethoven, Mozart, Strauss, or Schubert.
