“Astonishing architecture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

The historic centre is amazing. Unless you have an official guide with you, it's a good idea to study a little bit beforehand.

“Grand buildings, nice and clean”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

Vienna is a beautiful city, full of grandiose buildings, alive with restaurants and cafes. I wasn't blown away by the coffee, but it wasn't bad neither. I had a fantastic time enjoying Christmas markets and the mandatory gluhwein and wurstels that go with it. Savour the classical music at the Musikveiren or the Staat Oper as well
