Our alternative guided walking tour!


Discover the different challenges that homeless people face and the diverse possibilities that the Viennese social system offers when people need it the most.

During this two hour long tour your guide – a (former) homeless person himself – will provide you with a mix of facts and personal stories that illustrate the complexity of homelessness. Together we will walk along the thin line of poverty and wellfare. We will pass places that are related to homelessness and will make you realize the contrasts of the city. 

The content is homelessness, its challenges and the solutions that the city provides. While you are learning something new, you contribute to the re-integration of the guide into a stable living and housing situation. 


This is not a sightseeing tour – this is a tour about life.  It therefore is an educational tour on a socio-politic topic. Please note that the tour does not visit shelters or expose homeless people. Our guides are affected by homelessness and reject social voyeurism, thus neither other homeless people will be showcasted, nor former hideouts are shown.


You will receive the exact meeting point with a download link in the booking confirmation! 


SHADES TOURS is looking forward to seeing you!
