    If you have limited time in Vienna, but still want to experience the royalty of Franz Joseph, this is wonderful and far less crowded than Schonbrunner. Loved the display about Sisi and the royal apartments. Don't let current constructing dissuade you.

    This museum houses a number of key works including by Klimt and Egon Schiele. There is a great deal of interesting Art Nouveau art - the Gerstl and Kokoschka pieces are astounding. It was nice to see a lot of furniture from the same era. Well worth a visit.

    Located near the Volkstheater metro station. The main attractions are Leopold (classic art) and mumok (modern art). Between them there is a social space with many bars and places for chilling. Everything is well projected and you can have an overview at the top of the Leopold through a lift located on its left side. Entrance to each museum is around 14 €.

    A palace visit is essential if you come to Vienna. The imperial apartments and the Hofburg in general are a worthy experience.

    We used our Vienna passes for this attraction. We went only because of that. It’s a long time since we’ve been to MT in London. However we were pleasantly surprised by the layout of the wax works and how one could interact with the lifelike figures. It’s a fun visit, and great to have a photo or two to send to friends as a bit of fun.

    Judenplatz or Jewish Square is a town square in Vienna's Innere Stadt that was the center of Jewish life. It is located in the immediate proximity of Am Hof square. The memorial is to Austrian Holocaust Victims, a project based on an idea of Simon Wiesenthal and unveiled in 2000. Created by British artist Rachel Whiteread, the memorial is a reinforced concrete cube resembling a library with its volumes turned inside out.

    The Weltmuseum houses some amazing pieces of armoury from Austria, Europe and the rest of the world. Along with the armoury there are some beautiful pieces of historic art and treasures. Step inside the museum and you are instantly in wonder of the beautifully decorated interior.

    Open 10h00 to 17h00 Monday through Saturday 3D PicArt Museum is a fun way to spend 2 hours. Spread across two floors and 50+ stations this interactive gallery centers on quirky tricks of perspective for selfies. Fight a dinosaur? Mortal Kombat? Dissolving in acid? Great for a date and fun for all ages with exceptional customer service!

    This is a brilliant museum for clock lovers and historians alike. It covers hundreds of years of timepieces, not just from Austria, but with examples from all over Europe and the world. The museum is on three levels, and entry was approx 8 Euros. You need to place your bags in free lockers on the ground floor, but you are free to take as many pictures as you wish, but not with flash.

    This is literally my first place to go after my plane touches down Vienna. I have to move this time sink to my schedule’s very beginning – by far it’s the least-central attraction of my trip, requiring a ten-minute train ride from the Mitte Station followed by a fifteen-minute walk.

    Branding. The house can also be casually called a “Beethoven House”. But having been rebranded as a museum, it now acquires a bit more legitimacy to attract visitors to this Heiligenstadt, an otherwise suburban, residential district much less touristy than those with other composers’ houses.

    (Not to be confused with the “Beethoven Pasqualati House”, an apartment he lived in at a later period.)

    Background. The museum traces the time Beethoven was to visit Vienna for the second time – a time that that he was already well-established as a musical genius in his home town, Bonn. But then this time his visit had an expected twist – his father’s death and France's ambitious military actions towards the east eventually meant that he was to stay here, forever.

    Living here. In 1801 his hearing continued to deteriorate only to be complicated by stress and a questionable future. It was under this backdrop that his doctor recommended him to move away from the hectic Vienna. He moved to the house in 1802.

    Interactivity. A small number of devices scatter across the showrooms. Keyboard game – press the chord as shown to activate the music playing. Try not to struggle for too long, or face the humiliation of a staffer coming to rescue.

    Cold knowledge. On the first floor you can experiment using your skull bones to listen – much like Beethoven in his later years, when he used his teeth to sense the vibrations from his piano.
