“Lovely lovely old buildings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

We loved how the old buildings were so carefully preserved. The city hall, the parliament building, the park, Goethepladz statue down to the Albertina. All great.

“Lots of History”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

You need to go there.This was my second time. Don't be surprised by people dressed in funny clothes- they are not crooks- they are doing they jobs. However, if they tell you that you will be going to the concert in the most beautiful room in the palace- don't trust them.

“Great sites at every turn!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

The historic city center of Veinna is a lovely area full of sites, cafes, and great little shops. This is the perfect place for any type of traveler as there is something for everyone! I hightly recommend Cafe Diglas right next to the Mozart House as it had wonderful soups, drink, and out of this world sweet treats!

“Vienna at it's best”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

This was my first time in Vienna. It’s a really nice city in which you can feel the presence of “old” middle Europe with magnificent buildings, broad streets or rather avenues, beautiful churches etc. I kept, however, comparing with some of my favorite cities in Europe, like Paris, Rome and Florence and in comparison to them Vienna definitely comes short.
