Special Seminar

Special Seminar at PEU/Bratislava on "The influence of systemic transition on jurisprudence and doctrine" (Moderator: Jürgen BASEDOW; limited access - registration is based on first come first serve)

Sightseeing Tour 1


We take you on a stroll through the old city, seeing selected points of interest. You will discover some of the delightful features of Vienna and visit parts of the city only a true Viennese can point out. This tour takes you through various eras from the middle ages up to the present time.
The first district is the oldest part of Vienna, where even some sections date back to Roman times. Narrow roads, many still with cobble stones, and the buildings are prime examples of architectural styles from Renaissance to Baroque and up to modern times, the whole place is steeped in history and delightful to walk around.

The special highlight is St. Stephen’s Cathedral, the finest Gothic building in Austria. It has a high Gothic choir and a late Gothic nave with a steeply pitched roof covered with a decorative pattern in glazed tiles. The regularly tapering South tower, popularly known as „Steffl” is Vienna’s principal landmark. The tour ends in the city centre where you have time to take advantage of the great shopping opportunities that Vienna offers or you can just relax in one of the famous Viennese cafes with a „Melange“ and a piece of delicious cake.
(For max. 2 hours walking tour incl. English-speaking guide and entrance fee to St. Stephen´s Cathedral, min. 20 persons, max. 40 persons)

Sightseeing Tour 2


This tour shows the most important sights of Vienna; The Hofburg Palace - the former winter residence of the Habsburg Family, the Ringstrasse with its magnificent and impressive buildings such as the State Opera House, National Museums, Parliament, the Burgtheater, the University and the Votivkirche, as well as the Karlskirche (Vienna’s most beautiful baroque church) and the Musikverein (Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra).

The highlight of this tour is an interior visit of the famous Schoenbrunn Palace with its lavishly decorated rooms shows the glamour of past times. Schoenbrunn was the former summer residence of the Habsburgs. It was built by Leopold I, the grandfather of Maria Theresia after plans of the famous architect Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach. Leopold I died before the palace was finished in 1705. Further considerable changes were made 1744 -1749 by Nikolaus Pacassi. The palace has remained substantially unchanged since Maria Theresia. Until 1918 it was, together with the Hofburg, the principal seat of the Holy Roman Empire and subsequently that of the Austrian Emperor. Napoleon had his headquarters in Schönbrunn in 1806 and 1809. His son, the Duke of Reichstadt (known as „L’Aiglon“) died here in 1832.
(For max. 4 hours tour incl. English-speaking guide, comfortable transfer by coach and entrance fee to Schönbrunn, min. 20 Persons, max. 40 persons)
