Storyline

It’s 1679, and the Great Plague has brought the imperial city to its knees.

Follow the footsteps of local legend Augustin through a city crippled by an epidemic claiming thousands of its residents.

As Marx Augustin arrives back at the gates of Vienna after a long tour around surrounding cities, the famous balladeer finds out that his hometown is struck by the plague. By following the life story of Vienna’s most famous balladeer, you will rise from the dead, and become the symbol of hope for a city in despair.

To get to the starting point of this quest, use the exit metro exit Rotenturmstraße. Once you exit, turn to the right and walk for 200 meters with the river on your right side until you find the stairs on your left, those near a big marble relief (a city-view on medieval Vienna).

Fabulous quest, really interesting. Took us away from the bustling city and down little cobbled streets, beautiful. Couldn't read some of the answers at night time, best to do in the daylight
