The amount of historical buildings so close to each other is really impressive. There is something for each weather and taste - enjoy a walk in the generous pedestrian areas (Kärntner Strasse, Graben) and do some window shopping (or more if you can afford!), visit one of the famous and well taken care of parks or if the weather is...

We spent 2 days for the old town but it seems like there are so much to see, to explore, to discover, time is never enough. Vienna seems to have a distinct old world charm in every corner of the city that never failed to surprise us and made us love the city even more. We stopped in many coffee... More

What can I say what has not already been said? Vienna is stunning, full of history, one of my favourite cities. All is genuine and the fact that the city has not been so much destroyed during WW2 makes that there is this special historic atmosphere.

We did this on our last day in Vienna, and I wish that I had done this earlier. There are so many places to see, shop, eat, rest, drink etc. Hours will pass by without realisation. Worth a visit.

There is so much to see and admire. We only spent a day here but should have spent at least 2 or more! And we should have gotten a hotel close by to really enjoy the feel of the area. So, to really enjoy the beauty of the architecture and it's musical history, give yourself time to enjoy the sights... More

All the palaces, museums in Vienna are worth visiting. Best is to buy a museum pass. Vienna is one city where the transportation is excellent.
