City of Legends
There is hardly another city as rich in legends as Vienna. Whether in alleyways or on street corners, in houses or on squares – in Vienna one can find myths and legends everywhere. Dark secrets lurk behind every corner and the closer you look, the more mysterious the metropolis on the Danube becomes. From the ‘Basilisk’ to the ‘Spinnerin am Kreuz’, the ‘Lieber Augustin’ to the ‘Stock im Eisen’ – you can find stories everywhere, because they are part of our history.
In this documentary, Vienna guide Barbara Wolflingseder leads us deep into the local legends and explains, which worries, fears and hope lay beneath them. The documentary gives a vivid image of Vienna as it once was.
