City tours of Timişoara

guided walking tours
through a historic urban landscape

The main city of the Banat region is an intriguing mixture of old architecture and fast-modernising city life. Timişoara played a role in many European events, from the time of the Ottoman conquest, through the reign of Maria Theresia and up to the Romanian Revolution in December 1989, which started here and led to the fall of the communist dictator Nicolae Ceauşescu. Within our guided city tours you will discover tons of top-notch Art Nouveau, captivating history and a young, friendly atmosphere.

The city tours of Timişoara are ideal for:

  • business or professional travellers: from delegations / teams visiting a company in Timişoara, to people attending conferences or other events (we highly advice including a city tour into the event schedule!)
  • leisure travellers: included within round trips, or for city breaks
  • ... both categories as individuals or groups

the past times of the Bega can still be read in the architecture of Timisoara previous picture next picture

Timişoara's love for the Bega, imprinted in the architecture

The façade of the eclectic Palais of Steiner Miksa shows the front side of a ship (a bow), coming right out of the building. The palais was erected 1901, and, at that moment, a sidearm of the river Bega was running right in front of it; the bow of a ship catches the reality of those times. On the other hand, we should emphasize that this beautiful building doesn't lie in the downtown, but in the Fabric district (neighbourhood) of the city. Timişoara's heritage of some 14,500 old buildings is divided between four old (historical) districts. Almost all tourists only see the downtown ("Inner City"), and so miss the other old neighbourhoods: Iosefin, Elisabetin and Fabric.
