Virtual Reality: Discover Vienna with the Future Bus

Witness the assassination of Emperor Franz Joseph I? Look over Maria Theresa's shoulder in her study? Or perhaps go on a coach ride with Empress Sisi? All this becomes possible with the Future Bus, an exciting multi-sensory experience that plays out on multiple levels. The bus ride departs from right in front of the Albertina, behind the Vienna State Opera. But what usually happens on a normal city tour – putting on headphones, listening, and looking out of the window – takes an innovative turn on the Future Bus after the first stop.

Spectacular 360-degree view

The gong sounds, the participants put on a VR headset and dive into the history of famous Viennese places. They then become part of past epochs in a free rendering of the motto "in the thick of things, instead of just being there". Thanks to a virtual 360-degree view, Vienna's history is tangibly close – a direct and impressive encounter with the past. Because the Virtual Reality sequences are beautifully produced and have been created by professional actors, animators, directors and sound engineers. A large number of special effects also contribute to this virtual adventure.
