The night hike was a very interesting and instructive event. In order to give the whole thing the appropriate framework, I personally lacked the tension a little. In addition to mysterious or mystical tales, legends and ghost stories, a night hike may also be associated with lanterns or people who underscore what is being told and thus make it unforgettable. Nevertheless, it was a highlight for me in Vienna, because the next day the individual stations could be inspected again. Thank you for this experience.

The late night tour was great, the tour guide was very personable; she spoke very vividly. Luckily, the whole thing wasn't presented in a lurid way, but a lot of historical background information was given about the events and 'legends' in question. It was great fun, was informative and presented in a differentiated way (with references to the historical sources). I have already recommended the tour and would be happy to do it again if I get visitors from outside Vienna (I'm not a tourist, I live in Vienna).

The tour was very informative and beautiful spots in the city center were visited. The guide knew a lot and not only told the "stories" and "legends" but also the true history behind them. Personally, I didn't find the permanently ironic undertone that great, but that's subjective. So I wasn't carried away.
