    Busy place we visited as part of a tour but can visit independently with headsets. Can get there with public transportation too.

    Lots to see in this dramatic setting. Some familiar treasures (Bruegel, Arcimboldo) but so much more to explore.

    Without question Vienna isn't just about the waltz.

    The architecture is stunning and kept clean.

    Yes it is like a lot of cities, a city, but Vienna seemed to have a Vienna feel about it. A feel I cannot describe but it felt different.

    Tour guides bring history into the open which really is a must.

    Thank you Vienna

    Definitely the best zoo I have ever been in. It is beautifully laid out, and features a large selection of animals and other displays. While the variety of exotic creatures is interesting, my personal favourite is the collection of farm animals that you can get up and close to. The little hut restaurant on top of the hill is also just lovely.

    You can breeze through and see everything in about two hours, but if you take your time you can easily spend a day in there.

    This was a great museum to visit. Not too big that you'll get lost, but just big enough to satisfy all art lovers. We went to see the exhibition of Munch, but were pleasantly surprised by the extensive, colorful collection of the other artists. Worth spending a few hours.

    Stunning buildings are just the wrapper. So much to see in the various exhibitions that we had to be selective - even though we had two visits.

    This is a great day out with the ids and is totally free, they ask for a contribution which i think is great cause you can give what you can afford rather than ruling it out by cost. We loved it.

    Our trip to Vienna was fairly last minute so no time to pre-book opera tickets before arrival. We're certainly not opera buffs anyway but love the cultural experience of visiting iconic places such as the Mariinsky & Verona Arena & of course the Vienna State Opera.

    So the only way to get tickets was to queue for standing ones. We popped into the box office in the morning to get the low down of what to do. A very helpful girl told us where we would need to queue & that the doors opened to purchase at 5,30pm but it was advisable to get there at least an hour before, preferably an hour & a half & to bring something like a scarf to mark place,

    Armed with a cloth bag, a tea towel, water & a "traveller" (rum & cokes in cooler cups) we arrived at 4.30pm to find we were 3rd in the queue. In fact the queue didn't grow massively whether that was due to the really hot weather or the opera, Capriccio, I don't know. Anyway the time went quickly & it was a very convivial atmosphere chatting with the other people in the queue who were mostly real opera buffs & told us a bit about the performance we would be seeing & the best options for standing (apparently upstairs for better acoustics or downstairs for better views).

    At 5,30 pm doors opened & we were able to buy our tickets. 10 euros each cash only. We were then taken around to some stairs were we had to queue again in pairs, all quite regimented before eventually being allowed into the standing area. We found ourselves right at the front with fabulous views. We tied our teatowel & cloth bag to mark our place & were then free to explore the Opera House, even being allowed to try out the proper seats. The bars were reasonably priced too.

    The performance started at 7pm & each seat & standing area has a small screen for subtitles. Any idea of leaving at the interval if we were tired/bored was scuppered as there is no interval in Capriccio. That said we really enjoyed it. The sets & costumes are wonderful the opera itself is actually very funny in places & the final aria very moving. You don't need to look at the subtitles the whole time as it is easy to get the gist of what is going on. We had a fabulous evening & so glad that we"d gone.

    Fnal couple of points, there is no strict dress code but they don't allow men in shorts, it is a very long time to stand but we managed it at 65 & 68 & there will be ticket touts while you're queuing who'll try & sell you 14 euro tickets for 30 euros, please don't encourage them.

    This is a beautiful church and if you have the energy climb the stairs of the south tower for great views of the city

    This was a surprising stop and definitely worth visiting. Here are impressionistic works of art from painters I’d never heard of. Additionally, rooms of architectural furniture are interesting in their own right. Located on the outskirts of Central Vienna, it’s found in an area called the Museum District, so there are other minor places to visit besides this stop.

    English headsets are provide for this free tour. It was 35 degrees the day we visited and there is no air conditioning so keep this is mind if it's a problem for this walking tour including stirs. We enjoyed the tour and the history we learned.

    Wow, what an amazing library! This place is a must see while in Vienna. Pictures do not do the place justice; you have to see it for yourself. When we went there it wasn’t too crowded, lots of great photo opportunities (even if you had to wait for “influencers” to take their 100 photos). One of the prettiest buildings I have ever seen.

    Peterskirche was my favorite church in Vienna. Beautiful baroque design with so many lovely details. While we were there, we spoke to one of the pastors who was very kind and took his time to explain some of the symbolisms inside. A must see while in Vienna.

    My boyfriend and I spent a little over an hour at this museum, I really enjoyed it, thought it was just the right size with a nice variety of objects to see. I especially enjoyed some of the jewels, so impressive!
