    A beautiful sunny Saturday morning to visit the Schonbrunn Palace! It was an easy U-Bahn (subway) ride from our hotel near St. Stephen's in the city center. Dating back to the 1700s, the Schonbrunn Palace was the summer residence of the Hapsburgs. This is an extensive campus, with many interesting sites to see: the palace, the Gloriette, Neptune's Fountain, gardens, a maze, a zoo, children's museum, carriage museum, and much more; some are ticketed sites. As we had time constraints and have visited other opulent palaces, we decided to skip touring the palace itself, both for time and cost (and we knew that we could see other royal state rooms in the art museums that were once palaces). Walking the grounds, we enjoyed the gardens and greenery and the walk up to the Gloriette, stopping to see Neptune's Fountain and to see views of the city beyond the palace. We enjoyed coffee and a quick bite at the Gloriette before taking our leave. Definitely worth a visit. Do your homework to decide how much time you want to spend there and what you want to see before arriving on site.

    The historic center of Vienna is a fascinating and fun place to visit. We spent a couple of hours just wandering the streets, admiring the impressive architecture, fancy shops, outdoor cafes, statues and fountains. Make special stops to view the Opera House, St. Peter's Church and the Plague Column. Much of the area is pedestrian only, so you won't have to worry too much about vehicle traffic. On the other hand, this area is VERY crowded on a typical day, so be prepared for that. Grab a coffee and dessert at a patio restaurant and watch the world go by. The street food is good too -- I tried a sausage on a bun and a warm, soft pretzel.

    To get there, the subway system in Vienna is very good and easy to use, so I would suggest not bothering with a car or taxi.

    This is a beautiful building that used to be someone's residence and now its a wonderful art museum. We enjoyed our visit there on our recent trip to Europe. The building itself is gorgeous and the art, especially the Gustav Klimt collection is amazing. Highly recommend a visit.

    This is a very magnificent library, which kinds of make me feel like I’ve walked into Harry Potters’s world. There were lots of book in this library. However, €10 for the ticket seems to be very overpriced even though it’s a great experience

    It was around Christmas time so that even added more to my overall experience. Definitely recommend visiting this place during this time of the year as I really enjoyed the atmosphere along with the amazing views.

    I had seen this building 25 years before and was amazed then. Still amazing architecture - a bit of fading in the color. BUT unlike any other architecture in Vienna (and most other places).

    It can get quite crowded - so go early. And the neighboring "village" has gotten very commercial. But ignore any of that and just marvel at the architecture.

    Note that you can't go inside as people live there full time.

    Many folks know of the Hundertwasser House - but this is the place that is a museum of much of his work - painting, silk screens, architecture. And a ton of info on his philosophy and ideas. Fascinating - one of the more interesting artists/architects that I've ever seen. His concepts and viewpoint were striking.

    Really good interactive museum. Had so much fun starting with walking up the musical stairs and later virtually conducting the Vienna Philharmonic! For musical history buffs there was a section with a whole room devoted to each composer with a link to Vienna. My non-musical partner enjoyed it as much as I did.

    Located in a small quiet courtyard , this is the most beautiful church I visited in Vienna. Unassuming looking from the outside, the inside is incredible and a feast for the eyes.

    Walked by on our first day in Vienna and we can’t resist a crypt! Had read about everything in German but Google translate easily helped.
    8.5e for adults which was fair. Wished we had been able to do a tour in English but timing was not right. I think it would have been 5 stars with the extra information.
    No audio tour or anything, which would also be great.
    See all the crypts - Maria Theresa, Sisi, Franz Joseph. An interesting hour was spent there. I would recommend going and taking the tours offered. Otherwise, if English speaking, download Google translate to read signs.

    A masterpiece. Must see! The surounding areas offer a very enjoyable walk. The setting of the church is beautiful. The inside is mindblowing. Two centuries after the Saint Charles church, Vienese architects proved able to keep producing the best pieces of architecture of their time and style. I enjoyed every moment of this visit and remain deeply impressed by the inspirational beauty of the church. Certainly one of the best moments of my one-week visit to Viena!

    Central Station (Haupfbahnhof) is major rail hub linking Vienna to various domestic and international destinations. You can also catch quick service to the airport from here as well. We recently completed return rail trip to Munich and found the station to be quite modern, easy to navigate and make proper use. You'll find expected facilities, food court, couple floors of retail shops and convenient access into Vienna to/from Hbf. We would have no problem doing rail journeys from Wien Hbf during future travel in the region.

    Gorgeous!! Like the rest of Vienna, the courthouse is majestic. Inspiring to see (not a lot of ground to cover but worthwhile). Warmly recommend.
