Beautiful and historic - plenty of architecture and buildings to visit - and plenty of meuseums for the meuseum buffs. Pleasntly central, you can easily reach one place of interest to the next easily. Be prepared for plenty of walking if you intend to spend time here.

Get a good map and tie your walking shoes, because you can see all of the important historical places and get a real feel for the city by strolling around. I wish I had an extra day to spend there (or maybe two). Also, don't miss Schoenbrun Palace (might require taxi or bus). We did not have time to tour... More

The buildings were almost beyond belief.. Museums excellent. St Stephen's is breathtaking the plazas add so much to an evening out. Could spend many days exploring this area.

As part of a riverboat cruise, my wife & I visited Vienna with a tour group on 5/7-9. What a magnificent city! We first saw Vienna by night on a bus tour followed by a walking tour in the Historic Center. The lighting of the buildings, sculptures, fountains, & monuments was beautiful beyond words. What a lovely area to stroll.... More

Wow, Old Vienna is a gem! You could wander/stroll for literally days taking in all the beautiful things to see from the architecture of buildings and churches, the shops, the narrow streets, the fountains, the statues, the signs and everything else in between. Restaurants and cafes abound. Even going down the same street you notice different things about it. It... More

We enjoyed visiting the museums and parks in the old historic city centre of Vienna. The old buildings are really beautiful and the museums we visited were all very interesting.
