“Stunning, busy, friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

Arguing with the spouse over the foot-map, a lovely Austrian young man, smiled throughout giving us directions and showed us where we went wrong.....complex maze with changing street names...arghhh, but a lot to shop for, see and do. Go early and be the first through the doors

“Relaxed Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

A lot of it is pedestrianised, not too many cars about. The atmosphere is quiet and relaxed, does not feel like a capital city centre.

“Vienna in a nutshell”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

A visit through the Innerstadt (Historic center) gives one a very good idea about Vienna since most of the interesting sights are within this area surrounded by the ring: Hofburg, Opera, Albertina, Stephandoma nd some museums as well.

“The whole city is a monument”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

Lot of old buildings and other sightseeing points. Sometimes they are to eager to charge you for everything.
