Won't reveal what happens when you get here, but definitely worth a visit. One who visits will build up more empathy towards blind people. Tip - Travellers with vienna pass (not vienna card) get discount of EUR 5.00 on the price of the ticket.

There is nothing really what can prepare you for this experience. At first, the darkness is a bit uncomfortable and you cannot decide whether to keep your eyes open or shut. I even experienced illusion of vision. But after a while, you get more relaxed and you move around more freely. You understand how difficult it is, how with strong... More

I actually went here with not very high hopes, but came out pleasantly surprised! You're guided through a variety of different rooms in complete pitch black darkness and your senses are really put to the test. You feel around as to where you are (or what scenario you might be in). You feel wind, and hear loud noises of traffic... More

Great concept. I really wanted to enjoy it ... but I couldn't get anything out of it. The guide was very poor, had nothing to say, couldn't open us up to anything. The hour was taken up by simple logistics ("get on the left hand rail!") without ever developing into anything more profound or educational. At 18 euro it was... More

I went with my two boys (aged 6 and 10)...it was a remarkable mix between sound-scape, educational, theatre and science and philosophy...we walked in the dark through streets, into shops and bars, across busy roads, through forests and up mountains...after we emerged from our hour of darkness we headed straight for cafe landtmann where the children and I didn't stop...

Take about an hour to stop at that experience. The tour guides (all blind people) lead you through a world of absolute darkness. They do a good job keeping you entertained and safe, plus some of the guides speak several languages that make it entertaining for all. Definitely go and check it out, you will appreciate your eyesight like never... More

This is a great experience for everyone - a 60 minute guided tour in utter blackness. Our blind guide Nelli was great and gave little tips so that also the kids were not afraid, but the group (8 people) had to find their way through this course. Complete with simulated road crossing, boat cruise and a cave hike, all ending... More

When we went there we did not really know what to exepect. After we had been split up in small groups of six, one of the receptionists explained how to use a blind people's stick. And the we were sent right into the dark. Some of the younger folks were quite nervous, some even scared. One of them had to... More

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
