I think this is the most beautiful area I have ever been to. It has so many attractions. It has museums, restaurants, iconic cafes and its just great to wander around. You can spend days just walking around, stopping for coffee or a quick bite, then moving on.

The title says it all. Steeped in history, and magnificent. On this visit we did to manage to get to see the the Empress Elizabeths apartments but we have done previously- her diaries could have been written by a Princess of modern times.

the wide pedestrian mall is wonderful. One need never to buy a ticket to anything to be continually entertained. In addition, there is an overall sense of calm and security. Never once did my wife nor I have any feelings of apprehension as regards our personal safety.

Even in the rain, Vienna offered excitement of years gone by. I highly recommend using the hop on/off busses because they really do a great job of helping you expedite your time, and educate you on sights. I just wish there was more nightly entertainment around town in September. Even the bars were quiet. Our three days were plenty to... More

Loved the art galleries and the Belvedere as I'm a big fan of Klimt. The buildings are all very grand and easy to access on foot.

Walk around Vienna and simply soak up the history, or do the city tour on the bus. There is one that drives around for an hour and a half (not a hop on hop off type) and it was only €14. It leaves from right opposite the Albertina Museum. There is another one which goes for about twice as long... More

went on a day trip here from Bratislava and a day was no where near enough, only downside was the drizzle that was ongoing all day. But the buildings where great to look at and all the cafes and bars where rammed was a centre bustling with life and culture well worth getting lost in.
