“Very crowded, and toristy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

When over half of the city was destroyed in WW@, they allowed the builders to put "modern" buildings next to the old buildings, the result is a jarring mishmash of beautiful old, and ugly glass and steel buildings.

“Many palaces, wide windy streets”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

The opera is awesome, wonderful sculpture all around the city
However, the place is rather grey, cold stone is everywhere

“Lots to see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

Lots of monuments and memorials. If you are into history, you'll be in your element. Franz Joseph seems to be quite popular. Beethoven's burial place is miles away.

“Old city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

This should be your starting point, about 4 hours of walking if you do it according to a guided book whick walk through all the small allies. A must!
