Free guided tours in foreign languages at the State Hall of the Austrian National Library

The International Tourist Guide Day has a special jubilee to celebrate this year: For the 30th time in succession, the guides look forward to introducing their guests to another interesting site in the City.  This time there is special focus on the Haus der Geschichte Österreich in the Hofburg. Guided tours in German will be offered free of charge on Sunday, 17th February 2019.

The guides would be delighted to welcome not only the local Viennese, but also visitors from abroad, to our thematic tours and lectures under the motto „Contemporary Austrian History“.

The meeting point for all tours offered by the licensed Vienna guides is the entrance Hall of the National Library on Josefsplatz: So, not only the tours of the Haus der Geschichte Österreich start there, but also all other conducted tours such as tours of institutions belonging to the Austrian National Library, the Museum of Literature and external tours of the Hofburg. The lectures will also take place here in the „Camineum“.

Tours in foreign languages ar offered at the State Hall (Prunksaal) of the Austrian National Library. The meeting point for tours in various  languages is the entrance hall of the Austrian National Library, Josefsplatz, 1010 Vienna
