This is the first stop on arriving in Vienna! Take a stroll and watch history unfold as you see the old and new architecture construct a city like no other in the world. Forget the naysayers who complain of inconsistency in building styles - its a city that's over 1500 years old! And the best part of the historic center? It's free! Let me mention that again: IT'S FREE! If you get tired, stop for a coffee and strudel, reenergize yourself, and carry on. You'll definitely find parks and other places to sit and enjoy, so get out and explore! This is easily the best way to get your bearings and decide what to do.
