Starring Orson Welles and considered one of the greatest movies of all time, The Third Man is set in post-war Vienna. Hear intriguing anecdotes about this dark espionage story as you walk along the cobbled alleys that inspired the movie's screenwriter and see some of the filming locations.

On this guided walking tour, step into scenes from The Third Man, a British film noir released in 1949 that captures Vienna's atmosphere of immorality, insecurity, and poverty in the years after World War II. Praised by many as one of the best movies ever made, the film features Academy Award winner Orson Welles playing the main character, Harry Lime.

Walk through hidden lanes and courtyards of the Austrian capital that inspired author Graham Greene and the film's director, Carol Reed. Hear insightful stories from your knowledgeable guide who puts the city's days during the Allied occupation and Cold War espionage in context as you stroll along the Danube Canal.

See some of the movie's locations such as the famous Hotel Sacher and Café Mozart, where Holly Martins secretly met Baron Kurtz. Walk past the apartment on Josefplatz, where the film's hero stayed during his time in Vienna. The scars of war are long gone, but most spots in the cinematic masterpiece remain intact—making this tour thoroughly enjoyable for movie fans and the historically inclined.
