General information about the Tourist Guide Day

On February 21st, 1985 the World Federation of Tourist Guide Associations (WFTGA) was founded in Vienna. Four years later, the congress of the WFTGA decided to implement an annual „International Tourist Guide Day“ which is always supposed to be held around the founding date.

Since then, the Viennese Tourist Guides celebrated this day with various activities. This year again, we would like to draw your attention to two of the many attractions of the city of Vienna: the Austrian National Library (ÖNB) and the Kunsthistorisches Museum (KHM). With free guided tours and lectures we would like to demonstrate our profound knowledge and our professionalism.
