Sustainable Vienna — not something new but a way of life! Discover Vienna’s historical links with sustainability – from the Romans to today.

Let’s take a walk back in time to see how people in the Middle Ages coped with a lack of sanitation and clean water among the narrow streets of the old city. What innovations pioneered by the Romans were revived in the 19th century to provide Vienna with the pure water it is known for today? What was revolutionary about the concepts of “Red Vienna”? Who were the drivers behind measures to stem the spread of disease in the 17th and 18th centuries? What can an eagle on the Graben teach us about conserving wildlife?  Tour length: 1.5-2 hours, Cost: 15 Euros per person

Meeting point: On Franz-Josefs-Kai, In front of the McDonald’s at the corner of Rotenturmstraße.
