viennacontemporary 2019 | Guided Tours

From 28 to 29 September 2019, viennacontemporary offers a wide range of Public and Private Guided Tours through the fair. Our tours make for an excellent introduction to the fair and are the perfect way to get the most out of your visit, especially if you have limited time. Designed both for small groups and individuals, you can decide who to bring with you — your colleagues for an after-work stroll and a drink, your family for an annual get-together, a friend to share your art experience – or indulge in choosing your first artwork all by yourself. 


Public Guided Tours invite you to embark on an inspiring journey with Fiona Liewehr and Harald Krejci, the curators of the special shows ZONE1 and Explorations, while the unique KIDS! Tour turns a visit to Austria’s international art fair into a worthwhile experience for the entire family. Public Guided Tours can be purchased along with the admission here.

This year, three formats of tours are available: Group Tour, Curators Tour and KIDS! Tour.
All Tours start at the Meeting Point.
