Brilliant architecture, great museums, lots of gardens to walk around with your kids, fabulous experience
If you are in Vienna don't miss the Museum Quarter, even if you are not the museum type at all, you 'll love the young crowd, the bars, the cafes, the restaurants, there. (even the gift shop was fun!)
