Scouting Visit: Vienna’s Hidden Courtyards

Hidden behind the bustling streets of Vienna’s first district are countless Pawlatschen (the Viennese word for traditional courtyards of residential buildings). Back in the 18th century these courtyards would have been a hive of activity: tenants would have met there, chatted, done their laundry, and fetched and carried water from a central well. But now, these courtyards offer an oasis of calm away from the busy streets.

On 27 February 2016 from 10:00-12:00 we are delighted to invite you to join us on our FREE photo walk, where we’ll show you some of the finest and oldest courtyards in the city.

To give you an idea of the sorts of things you’re likely to see, here are some photos from our scouting trip.



So, what are you waiting for? Register to join our FREE walk today! 🙂

P.S. In case you can’t make it, and/or if you fancy exploring the courtyards by yourself, then there’s an excellent map showing many of the courtyards here.
