Vienna

Sophisticated culture and a sportsman's paradise, all in one city

Although Vienna is unquestionably one of Europe's great cities, its subtler charms sometimes go overlooked. Visitors who do visit this Hapsburgian playground will discover that Viennese delights come in many forms. The city's cultural treasures, for one, are almost overwhelming in their abundance. Baroque cathedrals mingle with medieval churches, and everywhere is art, music, and more art. Austria's most famous palace, Schönbrunn, was built to rival Versailles, and touring it is like passing through a giant, gilded music box. Vienna's actual music box, the stunning Vienna State Opera, is also unforgettable, and worth visiting even if you can't score tickets for a performance (which can be surprisingly inexpensive). Vienna also has attractions for those with a passion for the outdoors. Boating and water sports take place on the famous Danube, and escape to the verdant pleasures of the Wienerwald is quick and easy. The local cuisine is, fittingly, also rich and delightful. Fine restaurants offer perfectly executed schnitzel, savory goulash, and the decadent Sacher Torte. Or watch dusk melt into evening while devouring a char-grilled sausage at a laid-back wine garden. The fine blend of natural and man-made treasures makes time spent in Vienna both stimulating and uniquely relaxing. Bring your opera glasses and your hiking boots.

  • Vienna is indeed a beautiful city and it has heaps of nice things to offer: art, concerts, great coffee places, yummy food...it's a bit like strolling through a historic film set or living in a museum - and you could enjoy the architecture even more if you didn't have to look down on the sidewalk for every step, trying to maneuver around spread out piles of dog poo!!

  • The inner city is the best. All sights are so close together. I walked through the city with my mp3 player and the Your Friend Audoguide. This is the most comfortable way to get to know the city.

  • Great place to visit - over 50% of what you want to see is in walking distance in the first district, known as Innere Stadt (inner city). Get a private hotel in the first district or a hotel farther away near a subway station.
