We are going to Vienna for the first time next week and have 4 days to see the sights. It is our first stop on a 3 week trip (Prague, Lake Konstanz and Swiss Alps afterwards). I love art and cities, husband loves history and the countryside, and we both love gardens and music. This itinerary is probably pushing it, but we would like any advice. Thank you!
