From Empress “Sissi” to Tom Cruise
Do you wish to know where the first film screening took place in Vienna in 1896? How the lead actress of “Sodom & Gomorra” (1924) was able to prevent her own death at last second? Why Empress “Sissi” was not allowed to marry at St. Steven’s Cathedral? Where and when 200,000 extras filled Vienna’s streets for a single scene?
Come along with me to the sights of Vienna. Starting at the Secession, we will follow Alain Delon’s “Scorpio the Killer” down into the deepest manmade hole in Europe at the time and discover how angry local car drivers unwillingly became part of a scene with Burt Lancaster.
Sights which are also filming locations
We will visit the Vienna State Opera and “follow” Tom Cruise’s spectacular escape in “Mission Impossible V”.
We will explore Vienna’s Hofburg and find out how it was altered to look like Versailles in France for “The Three Musketeers” and take a look at the most expensive movie prop of all time.
Let me take you to the hidden corners of the city that still look the same as they did when they were captured on film and share fascinating anecdotes and suspenseful stories with you.
I offer you an enthralling exploration behind the scenes of Vienna as a movie city.
