How does it smell? Since we are looking at the westside of the city, you get hints of the Vienna woods, of mountain air and a fresh breeze, but also sausages, coffee, chocolate, beer and street markets. We step inside some legendary establishments to go deeper into the olfactory qualities of this fragrant capital. But also visit the dark side: U6 underground line, some public toilets, a highway and the whiff of horse urine left under the Fiakers.
We will do some breathing exercises, tell funny stories, and compare how Vienna smells to other big cities worldwide. What are the fragrances that tell you immediately you are here? It is a special sensation to come across a scent and instantly be transported back to a person, a place, or a part of your life. In an age of global corporate blandness, we are looking for smells that remind us of home, and a sense of place.
Why should walking be associated with grass and trees, instead of architecture and people and LIFE? We want to take Vienna on some urban adventures, into public space and innovation and lively groups of people coming together for good conversation and discovery.
The tour is led by Eugene Quinn, our English-speaking Vienna local and guide extraordinaire, who will show you a different Vienna than the one you've come to expect.
