Vienna to me is one of the most beautiful and romantic cities in the world. The prices on food and hotels are much lower than in many other capitals in the world.

Just walk around and you will see so much beauty and culture, even just grabbing a wurst and a beer and sit and watch, or get some dessert, the buildings are amazing...just a nice place to visit...

Start your trip from this point and then work outwards to all the famous landmarks. Plenty of horse and carriages around this area for sightseeing around the inner stadt.

The city arranged a trip around the old town on an old tram, with champagne and a guide who babbled on as we guzzled the bubbly. Lovely to see the old city, and nobody mentioned the war.

In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards

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

The hotel is 20 minutes from the airport and 7 minutes walk into the centre of Vienna near the opera house. Don't think you will be able to cover too much sightseeing but with an early breakfast who knows

Hello...we will be in Vienna Dec. 23-26. Any suggestions for Christmas Eve and Day? Music in churches, or other? Any free walking tours on those days? Thank you for your help.
