Top ways to experience Historic Center of Vienna
The area
Neighborhood: Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.

Walk around from Karlsplatz metro station, through Kärntner strasse, the Dom, Graben, Hofburg and the little streets around them to Am Hof and Freyung squares, everything is nice and well maintained.

Lots to see. Just make sure you have a little clue where you are walking and have a good city guide. Otherwise you might just have walked past the place where Mozart lived and not noticed it or missed the most famous cake in the world or ... There is something to see at every corner. Just make sure you have enough time and keep your eyes open!!!

Great historical place! Especially since the trip coincided with the period of the Christmas fairs ... Which are magical and fairytale!

You can do a self-guided walking tour in the old town of Vienna. Lots to see including St. Peter's Cathedral and the old Vienna Opera House. Allow plenty of time.

One thing about the city of Vienna is that it is breathtaking and you are constantly wowed by the buildings, architecture and just can't stop looking round. So much so we nearly got run over a few times. Opulent is my one phrase for everything that is Vienna

Best to experience by walking. Nice houses and sights to see. Better to visit in spring or autumn. Online reservation for highlights is recommandable!
