13:30 - 15:15: Guided City Tour (separate registration)

We meet at 13:30 in front of the main building of the Vienna University of Technology.

Tour Topic: Vienna's Old Town: Highlights and Hidden Treasures

We stroll through the Hofburg, the famous main and winter residence of the Habsburgs, which has been constantly extended and modified for 700 years. With its 19 courtyards, 53 stairways, and 2600 rooms it is a small city on its own. We will hear stories and anecdotes about the Spanish court ceremonial, the fast eater Emperor Francis Joseph, Sisi's (his wife's) craze for beauty, and much more.

Subsequently, we will continue to the Stephansdom, the predominant landmark of Vienna. The tour will be finished off with glances into narrow, quaint alleys and picturesque 'Pawlatschen' courtyards.

The tour will end between 15:00 and 15:15 on Stephansplatz.

19:00: Welcome Reception

Informal come-together, location: Great Hall (Festsaal) of the Vienna University of Technology
