I lead art, architecture, and cultural history walks in Vienna on behalf of Context Travel and as a private contractor. I cover the extraordinary art and architecture of the city, as well as its history from the Romans to the present. These are lively, engaging, and customizable experiences.
The Kunsthistorisches Museum – Intense immersion in the highlights of one of the world’s great collections of Old Master paintings.
The Kunstkammer – Extraordinary objects (gold, gems, ivories, bronzes) created for the Habsburgs as a demonstration of their mastery of all of art and nature. A truly unique museum collection.
Jewish Vienna – Experience Vienna’s first and second districts through the lens of a millennium of Jewish history, from the Middle Ages through the Habsburg Empire and the Nazis to the present day.
Vienna 1900 – See Vienna through the works of the artists, architects, and urban planners who attempted to reshape it from a medieval town to a modern city. Includes the architecture of the Ringstrasse as well as Art Nouveau and Modernism.
“Lisa was extremely knowledgable. She was able to adjust her tour to our level of knowledge and our specific interests. Her presentation was clear, well-paced, and very interesting. I can’t think of anything that didn’t work.”
“Lisa was excellent. She was very knowledgeable and articulate. It was an accomplishment that she kept the attention of our group of six people, with ages varying from 10-82. We also appreciated the pace of the tour and it seemed as though she was able to successfully hit on the places she intended to get to.”
