Full description
Find your Fiaker next to the world-famous St. Stephen's Cathedral. From St. Stephen's Square, begin your journey to old seat of government during the Habsburg monarchy, the Hofburg. Today, the President and Chancellor of the Austrian Republic have their offices at this impressive complex. Travel along marvellous boulevard known as "The Ring", where you have the chance to see the buildings of the Natural Museum of History and Fine Arts. The square between the two buildings displays the statue of Maria Theresia, the sole female ruler in the house of Habsburg. Pass by the Austrian Parliament, built in a Greek architectural style with the statue of Pallas Athene in front of it. Right after the Parliament, see the Vienna Town Hall with its impressive square. The square in front of the hall is very popular among the Viennese, many events such as the annual film festival and the Christmas markets take place there. Finish your ride back at the St. Stephans Cathedral where it started.

    We waited anxiously for our ride to turn up as we were booked for 10:20am. No need to have worried, the ride turned up with a few minutes to spare, obviously we must have been the first of the day! The driver spoke good English, pointing out landmarks, and gladly took our photos for us at the end when we wanted a family photo sitting in the cart. We would recommend the experience, it is magical way to see parts of Vienna and feel like royalty…

    Having a traditional horse & carriage ride around the Old Town gives a nice relaxed view of the city and despite the weather meaning we were in a covered carriage it will be a memorable part of our visit, it gave a good base for planning where we wanted to explore further on our trip.

    A small fine carriage ride through the old town along all important points. Our coachman didn't even throw us out at the specified stop but took us back to the starting point at St. Stephen's Cathedral. In general, the coachmen were very nice and charming with their Viennese charm. Absolutely recommendable and absolutely necessary.
