FAQs

WHAT IS VR TOURS VIENNA?

VR Tours’ 2 hour-long walking tour (depending on group size) takes you back in time, to experience the defining events in Vienna and to live through all what we could only read about in history books before.

The tour takes you through six historical periods from the 15th century Whit Sunday procession to the end of the terrible events of World War 2. At each station, utilizing state-of-the-art technology, you can relive historical moments with virtual reality. Between the scenes, the audioguide (available in German and English) explains what lead up to the events in the scenes, and how they shaped the history of Vienna and Austria.

With incredible visual content, it’s an experience you never had dreamed of before.

This programme is not only unique in Vienna, but all over Austria!
