We are going to discover the 13th district: Hietzing

"The Schönbrunn Palace was constantly developed throughout the 17th, 18th and early 19th century and Hietzing grew with it. Nobility, officers and high-ranking civil servants needed to be close to the Emperor and over the years, Hietzing became the most aristocratic district in all of Vienna.

To an extent, it still is. Be it Austria′s (officially non-existent) nobility or other breeds of aristocrats: A walk through Hietzing shows you not only the obvious wealth of its residents, but also a fascinating collection of mostly Biedermeier and Gründerzeit villas. The approximately 50,000 residents of the 13th district stand out from most statistics in Vienna: Unusually high income and geriatric tendencies in terms of age. If the Empire has survived, it now lives in Hietzing."tmc

This tour will be lead by Frederic Fourmy, an official tour guide.
