Yang akan Anda lakukan

You will plunge into the world of formerly homeless Ferdinand, who has been hit hard by fortune. Born and raised in the 16th district Ottakring, he will take you on a tour full of witty anecdotes, tragic memories and insightful contemplations.
Ferdinand spent three years of his life in inadequate living conditions. During these years he has accumulated a wealth of knowledge he now shares on his walks through his home district. He shows places that offer free food and clothing, spots where you can use the toilets unnoticed or where you can warm up your bones. The tour halts outside the house in which he tended to his sick father and in front of a police station, where Ferdinand reflects on possible run-ins between the law and the homeless. Additional stops are a furniture shop and a retirement home, whose inhabitants always had some odd job for Ferdinand.
His moving story teaches us that anyone can become homeless, that there is always a way out and a path to go on. Please be patient with Ferdinand as he is not fluent in English and might sometimes need a moment to find the right words. Yet he loves to share his story with an English speaking audience to improve his language skills.
Other things to note
Ferdinands tour takes place in all weathers, which is why we recommend to bring weatherproof clothing.
To get to the meeting point e.g. take tram 44 from Schottentor (U2) until stop "Familienplatz".

As a tourism expert, tour guide and project manager, I am deeply rooted in the Austrian sustainability movement. For me, the support of our SUPERTRAMPS-Guides is a great privilege, as I work with unfortunate yet fascinating personalities, helping them to develop their talents. In the responsible role of tour guides these formerly homeless people can once again live reciprocity, experience normality and regain their self-confidence.
I am passionate about building up solidarity and mutual respect as well as immersing into other everyday realities. Your Host and Guide for this Tour is Ferdinand.

From the police station, Ferdinand will take you on a tour to his personal sites of homelessness. You will discover nice public squares, places steeped in Ferdinand's history and other places that are metaphoric for the daily struggles of a life without a home. Ferdinand will also introduce you to local organisations that helped him out of misery.
The walk ends at Wurlitzergasse 89 from where you can easily make your way back to the city center.

Ferdinand was a very kind host. His personal story is a sad one. ‘There but for the grace of God go I ‘ You won’t see the hot spots of Vienna but you’ll get an insight into a life less fortunate than yours.

It was unique to hear out the story and explore the non-touristy area. I was expecting it to be more structured rather than spontaneous. There was some German accents but in general the communication was good. I would recommend this as this will help you have a better understanding of the city and people rather than just going to nice wine gardens and hoping on/off site seeing.

Ferdinand gave us an insight into what his life was like before, during and after homelessness. He was open to all our questions and answered them patiently, with constant reminders of how homelessness could affect anyone. This is definitely a tour that makes one reflect and be grateful for the comforts & privileges we take for granted.
