Vienna Sights

With romantic nostalgia and modern hype, Vienna combines present and past. Its historical center is one of the most beautiful urban areas in the world. Grand palaces, churches, parks and museums are everywhere in Vienna. This is a gracious old-world city on the banks of the majestic Danube River. There is no doubt why the historical center of Vienna is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Lovers of culture will feel right at home with Vienna's cafes and pastry shops, timeless art and music. Often regarded as the world's music capital, Vienna is where Mozart and Beethoven made history. This vibrant tradition continues today with musical and theater performances daily across the city.

Vienna Tourism

It's hard to go wrong sightseeing in Vienna. There seems to be an Austrian palace around every corner. The city center known as St. Stephen's Square features the gothic cathedral of the same name. Visit Stephansdom – St. Stephen's Cathedral – to enjoy a wealth of art treasures and climb the 343 stairs for breathtaking views over the city and square. A splendid boulevard called the Ringstrasse circles the center. It is lined with grand Imperial buildings and defines the 'Innere Statdt' where you will find the grand Hofburg. Further out lies the majestic Schönbrunn Palace, a former summer residence of the Habsburgs. The Belvedere Palace is another must-see. A stroll amongst Vienna's bustling walking streets makes for an enjoyable day of shopping. You could also cruise on the Danube. Or just relax at one of the famous Viennese coffee houses.

Where to stay in Vienna

All the accommodation choices we will present to you as part of your customized vacation package proposal are located in or very close to Vienna's Innere Stadt, the historic city center. You can be sure you'll be close to all the major central sights.

Things to do in Vienna

You'll find most of Vienna's main sights are in the city center, such as St Stephen's Cathedral, the Hofburg and the opera house, so a walking tour is a great way to get to know the city. Private guides in Vienna are costly but offer the advantage of flexibility versus an excellent small group tour that doesn't run every day. We will advise accordingly. Another pair of Vienna experiences that you'll want to fit in if you can are a visit to the Spanish Riding School, for a performance, or a practice session, and perhaps a performance of the Vienna Boy's Choir. Beyond the Ringstrasse Schonbrunn Palace is a marvel of imperial grandeur and a must-see. To get a taste for another aspect of Austria we highly recommend getting out to the Wachau Valley, one of the country's major wine-producing regions. When we send you your customized itinerary you will be able to choose additional excursions to included in your vacation package or consider for adding later.

What I love about Vienna...

“I love how Vienna, although a big city, has this tranquil vibe about it. This is the city you'll want to take in slowly, every street is artistic display of facades, monuments, caffes. And let's not forget delicious cakes at every corner :-)”
