You've got to do the mandatory walk around here and, if like me you have kids, let them buy a few souvenirs at the over-subscribed shops on the main drag. But like every other European capital's central square its over-subscribed and busy through the summer season so don't loiter too long, it'll exhaust you and drain you of energy better... More

The historic city center (basically within the burgring) is beautiful. The streets are clean and safe and there is good public transportation. Just walk around the city center or use the tramway to go around it to get an idea of the city topology, then hop off and walk through the streets. Or rent a bicycle. Don't forget to raise... More

Vienna is packed full of amazing buildings and architecture. Could keep you busy for weeks!! A lot of it is within walking distance of the city centre, but lots more a bit further afield - good public transport though.

Attach on a capital of Greek Pantheon the naked putti, insert a lot windows with a shatters and at the top attach Brunelleschi dome - and you will get the typical building in a center of Vienna ) It looks really geogreouse.

My spouse and me have been visiting Vienna since 1996. We usually stay at hotel Post which is a couple steps far from city center. We walked a lot by Kertner strasse, Graben and other big and small streets. An we enjoyed very much because the same streets and places are completely different in different seasons. We even like to... More

One of the most beautiful city centers i have seen. Gobble stones, not one road is straight, great local makrket with local specialties from food, wine, beer to hand crafts. Main square is full of life and there is no traffic. Prague is a beautiful city just to stroll the streets.
