A witty, quirky, amusing walking tour of unusual mostly modern buildings in the second district of Vienna then Schwedenplatz area by Eugene Quinn, an Englishman living in Vienna, who runs the space and place website. Highly recommended for a refreshingly different view of Vienna.

Catching this rare walking tour opportunity is much more valuable, educational, beneficial and funnier than sitting on a cafe or strolling trough touristic streets.. Even the first 10 minute's information and humor is worth to join, rest is bonus.

Whatever else you do in Vienna, don't miss the Ugly Walk. It is informative, educational, subversive, entertaining - just good fun. Eugene conveys a deep knowledge of, and affection for Vienna, and walkers learn about more than just the featured buildings. Highlight for this walker...More
Eugene knows how to entertain the group while showing some architectural highlights of Vienna that no one would expect in a city like this. It is totally worth taking part in the 2.5 hour long tour, I wish there would be a part2 or something...More
