To accompany the symposium 'Bretteldorf revisited. A century of informal urban development', guided tours are given on foot in originally "wild" populated districts of Vienna.

Where Otto Wagner had his villas built in complete seclusion not long before, a whole range of more or less self-organised settlements emerged in the 1920s and ’30 following “wild” incursions into the Vienna Woods. The walk takes us to the allotment and settlement houses of Am Wolfsberg, through the Eden estate and into the Kordonsiedlung, erected at the time of Austrofascism.
