Do not talk while walking around for the first time. If possible listen to Mozart while seeing the city for the first time. The perfect city in summer ..I must try to come in winter.. But summer is perfect weather. Read the history of Austria & Vienna. So you can feel connected to the city.

Vienna is incredible- beautiful historical buildings, monuments, cathedrals everywhere! And the historic center is always so clean! You can stroll the nice wide pedestrian section and window shop and people watch for hours. It's beautiful. And the Imperial Palace, St Stephens Cathedral and so much more are right there. Spectacular!

The day we started our vacation in Vienna, I knew I will be back again and soon. It is a fabulous city with lots of Imperial history. You can see today, the city's past glamour that is still shining. Lots of palaces to visits, some of the world's best museums. Vienna's building facades are extremely gorgeous. In every corner there... More

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
