The Blutgasse District is one of the oldest and most interesting parts of the city of Vienna. The medieval houses present there were restored and improved in 1965 in an excellent historical fashion. The name ‘Blutgasse’ means Blood Lane! According to legend, when the French Chivalric Order of Knights Templar was dissolved, many templars were slain here and the lane ran red with their blood! Today however, one can find art galleries, quaint cafes and a bit of history in these lanes. Another attraction over here are the ‘Durchhauser’ (passage houses).
- Guided tours of the district are available with local tour operators.
- Stephansplatz stop
- Plenty of restaurants and cafes are present along the tiny lanes.
