Underground walking tour
Go back in time to Vindobona, the Roman city that existed before Vienna was founded, on this exciting 90-minute walking tour beneath the capital’s streets. The tour begins at beautiful Michaelerplatz, where construction work in 1989 revealed Roman buildings dating back to around the end of the first century. The ruins are believed to be the remains of a complex of brothels, taverns and shops for Roman legionnaires. A 17th-century cellar and parts of the old city walls can also be seen. Then wander through the crypt of nearby St Michael’s Church, where around 4,000 people were buried between 1631 and 1784. See well-preserved mummified corpses, some dressed in Baroque frock coats and wigs, and coffins decorated with skulls and flowers.
