INTERNATIONAL TOURIST GUIDE DAY
On February 21st, 1985 the World Federation of Tourist Guide Associations (WFTGA) was founded in Vienna. Four years later, the congress of the WFTGA decided to implement an annual „International Tourist Guide Day“ which is always supposed to be held around the founding date.
The International Tourist Guide Day will take place on Februar 19th, 2023 in the Belvedere (Upper Belvedere, Lower Belvedere and Belvedere 21) with free tours, lectures and a children’s program in german throughout the whole day.
We also organize an inclusive „Tourist Guide Day“ in the Lower Belvedere in Vienna on February 17th, 2023. Guided tours in german are offered for free from 10-12 for deaf people and for people suffering from dementia. From 13-17pm we offer guided tours in german for blind people and those with debility of sight.
