A witty, quirky, amusing walking tour of unusual mostly modern buildings in the second district of Vienna then Schwedenplatz area by Eugene Quinn, an Englishman living in Vienna, who runs the space and place website. Highly recommended for a refreshingly different view of Vienna.

Catching this rare walking tour opportunity is much more valuable, educational, beneficial and funnier than sitting on a cafe or strolling trough touristic streets.. Even the first 10 minute's information and humor is worth to join, rest is bonus.

Eugene‘s walk along some particular architectural sights in Vienna makes up for a fun 2.5 hours around „ugly“ Vienna. It was great to be shown this different face of otherwise beautiful Vienna. Also, Eugene adds great humor to his commentary and creates a very cool...More

I’m writing this review on behalf of a school trip I took to Vienna rather than our usual family travels. Keeping a group of 16-18 year olds enthused and engaged for three days is no easy task, but when asked what their favourite part of...More

I enjoyed a very extraordinary tour with Eugene and, though a local,saw places I have not seen before. It was funny to listen to the guide's explanations and have the possibility to see my town through an exceptional point of view.

Just returned home from a cold, dreary walk through the neighborhoods flanking the canal. The guide takes walkers to questionable architectural and design choices in the city and a humorous and though-provoking conversation occurs. I really enjoyed the walk and the commentary. It's great to...More

We were really lucky to discover that this walk was running during our few days in Vienna - it only seems to run once a month. The buildings we visited were really interesting - the idea is that boring does not equal ugly but there...More

Whatever else you do in Vienna, don't miss the Ugly Walk. It is informative, educational, subversive, entertaining - just good fun. Eugene conveys a deep knowledge of, and affection for Vienna, and walkers learn about more than just the featured buildings. Highlight for this walker...More

Eugene knows how to entertain the group while showing some architectural highlights of Vienna that no one would expect in a city like this. It is totally worth taking part in the 2.5 hour long tour, I wish there would be a part2 or something...More

Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The
second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from
medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from
pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current
hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative
crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city center and
take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old
townhouses, churches, theaters, discount shops and
