- Travel back in time with an horse carriage ride in a "Fiaker"
For the ultimate Viennese experience, couple your hop-on hop-off bus tour of Vienna, free guided walking tour and cruise along the Danube with a horse-drawn carriage ride to experience Vienna in a vintage way.
These historical horse-drawn carriages served as Vienna’s taxicabs for centuries, and are just as integral to the city as St. Stephen’s Cathedral. A visit to Vienna wouldn’t be complete without taking a ride in one.
Vienna has a lot of ground to cover and the hop-on hop-off bus ticket allows you to take in as much or as little as you want in 48 or 72 hours. The many stops at all the important Viennese highlights allow you to create your own program or just to go with the flow.
- RED LINE: The RED LINE takes you to the most important buildings along the Ringstraße boulevard, from the State Opera past the Imperial Palace, the Museum of Art History, Parliament and Vienna City Hall to Burgtheater. From there, the route continues on past the Augarten park to Schwedenbrücke and back to the Opera via Stadtpark and Kursalon.
- YELLOW LINE: This line takes you from the State Opera to Schönbrunn Palace. Other stops along the route are the famous Naschmarkt, known for its culinary delights and international atmosphere, Vienna Main Station, the Museum of Military History and Belvedere Palace.

The route continues past the Prater amusement park with the Giant Ferris Wheel - one of Vienna’s most famous landmarks – the 150-metre Danube Tower and the Old Danube, a quiet sidearm of the mighty river.
- GREEN LINE: The GREEN LINE takes you from the city centre to Grinzing on the outskirts of Vienna, famous for its vineyards and the many traditional wine taverns (Heurigen). From there, the route takes you up Kahlenberg, which affords a magnificent view of the city.
