Love and desire in Vienna

Stories about love and desire in Vienna are a universally intriguing and almost inexhaustible topic. Viennese have partaken in the pleasures of the flesh for centuries – sometimes in clandestine ways, sometimes openly. The so-called Hübschlerinnen (prostitutes) of the Middle Ages and the courtesans of the famous Graben street of the Baroque era were part of the Viennese way of life and love.

The anecdotes and myths surrounding the Viennese courtesans of the 19th century surely contributed to the fantasies of many. This entertaining tour will give you insight into life inside those private dining rooms, and you will hear anecdotes about flirtatious encounters, but also about true love at the royal court.
