Vienna is always seen as the imperial city with its historical monuments and its classical music, but the urban art scene is never mentioned. Big names in the scene like ROA, Blu, Stink Fish and Shepard Fairey already came to Vienna to leave their mark. Join the tour to follow their footsteps and get a different impression of our city.
Prime Tours is passionate about leading you to the most active street art places of Vienna.
We are locals, who are aware of the Street Art community and want to tell the interesting stories about the art and their creators!
We are passionate insiders who collect information about the art and the artists. Some work carry political, social and artistic references, while other are more personal.
Our mission is not only to promote street art, but also to create a platform for travellers and locals to meet, discuss and discover the city and its suburbs from another perspective.
Our tours are organized weekly on different days at 6pm. We choose the evening hours to escape the busy city life, enjoy pleasant temperatures and explore the city in its most beautiful light.
Due to the fact, that we have different routes in our portfolio, which lead to different neighbourhoods and walls, we’ll inform about the exact meeting point a day in advance.
"You will have the possibility to experience the real Vienna, where no tourist will normally come to. You might have the chance to try authentic Viennese Street Food and local drinks (beer & wine). We try to keep groups in a medium size to make the tour as pleasant as possible. All our guides work on a tip based level. They will try to show you the Viennese alternative art scene as they know it and enjoy it so they always appreciate a reasonable tip."
For all the street art tours we run, a valid ticket for the public transport will be needed, due to the fact that to get the most out of the tour some transport (metro, tram) will be necessary.
