Highlights

  • Explore Vienna’s past guided by the bizarre story of Augustin’s legend.

  • Get to know more about the man who is called ‘Lieber Augustin’ (Dear Augustin) by the Viennese because of his charming humor in bitter times.

  • Join him on his tour along taverns and narrow medieval streets and find the hidden traces that remind us of the largest tragedy in the city’s history.

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).
