“Well worth your time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Charming, historic and easy walking Lots of sights and restaurants. Nice parks. Good museums. Habsberg Palace has lots to offer - don't miss the Egyptian exhibit. You might want to miss some of the art - lots of it but not always the best work of the artist.

“Go out at night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Without the constant tourist hubbub, Vienna at Night, with the palaces, cathedrals and theatres lit up for you, makes so much more sense. You may get lost in the back streets, so take a map, and you may also be surprised to find some eateries closing about 8pm. Nevertheless, it's romantic, beautiful, and timeless.

“Lost time!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Even with a map it was very difficult to find places Signs giving the direction of the place of interest such as London has would be extremely helpful and also directing to where the subways stations are
