“I wonder what the sewers looked like in “The Third Man?” my friend Rosie asked. One of the most famous scenes in the classic 1949 movie takes place in Vienna’s underground – in the city’s sewers.
Karin from The Third Man Museum
was able to provide photos
and the stairwell to the underground
that Harry Lime used in ‘The Third Man’
to escape through the sewers.

Harry Lime and Vienna’s Underground
One of Vienna’s most popular guided tours is available again after the recent completion of the main intercepting sewer below Vienna river. This Tour is sponsored by The Sewer Department of the City of Vienna. Thus Visitors can follow the tracks of “The Third Man” in the historic vaults of Vienna’s sewers. These are the same sewers which formed the background to the 1949 movie classic starring Orson Welles.
