    This museum is absolutely brilliant, it's so informative of not just the film but about Vienna too. No matter how many times you've seen the film here just adds more context to it, especially when you walk around Vienna and just randomly spot the doorway to Harry Limes apartment building. It might only be open on a Saturday but it's definitely worth a visit, the owner and the staff do an amazing job of looking after personal letters, signed photos and zithers

    Very cool to see, you can get some cool pictures and there is a space where you can learn about the structure and buy some souvenirs

    Fascinating museum devoted to the works of Hundertwasser. We particularly liked his designs for bookbindings and buildings. Great fun to walk around this building with its undulating floors and mosaic decorations. Sadly we didn't get to see much of the temporary exhibition as the fire alarm went off and we had to evacuate the building. So we were very glad we had visited the main galleries first!

    I enjoyed the exhibits devoted to WW I. As others have mentioned, Archduke Ferdinand’s car and uniform are highlights. The many weapons, uniforms, and territorial maps are also interesting. A lot of the exhibit is not in English so be sure to take advantage of an audio guide which is free.

    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.

    This place is cool! It had been on my bucket list for some time. We ubered from our hotel as this is downtown and very touristy and we figured it might be hard to get to. The uber dropped us at the door and we went right in for our self guided tour. Pictures were permitted and we took plenty. This was a very interesting place to visit and it took just under an hour.

    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!

    Great little museum, fascinating to get so close to the carriages with all their splendour & history. The hearse is incredible & used as recently as the 1980's! You only need a short time in there but well worth it, we almost didn't go in but very glad we did!

    As can be deducted from the relatively few reviews of St. Anna's Church (Annakirche) on TripAdvisor, this one is not well-known or frequented by visitors. Such a pity that most people miss it, especially considering it's located relatively near the city center. Perhaps it's because the church is very non-descript from the outside? But, step inside and, whoaaa... !!! The church is not so large but the beautiful baroque interior is fabulous. The ceiling frescoes are also fantastic. No entry fee either!

    This villa is certainly worth a visit. Ernst Fuchs was one of the most famous Austrian painters and sculptors. He was a co-founder of the "Viennese School of Phantastic Realism". E. Fuchs also was a composer, author, architect and planned the scenery for operas. His former residence plus its gardens are a wonderful sight for one's eyes.

    For something different to do on a Saturday morning i found out about the Vienna public transport museum (Remise Verkehrsmuseum) Im not sure the opening hours during summer, during early May it was only Wednesday, Saturday & Sunday, it is only 20 minutes by tram18 from the main station with a few minute walk around the corner to get there.
    The museum is housed in the old tram sheds and other than the cobble stone main entrance the layout is also quite access friendly, there are toilets and a cloakroom for jackets etc with a small ticket office and gift shop, tickets can also be bought online and at other Wiener Linien ticket offices.
    The collection dates back from the first horse drawn trams up to the modern units in use today as well as some of the buses that have served Vienna, there are audio handsets that guide you around not only the history of the city's transport but of the rise of the city as a whole.
    Cost for entry is 10 Euro for and adult but there is group and other tickets, the Wiener Linien website has details of costs and how to get there and other useful infomation.
    Overall I liked the museum and had a good couple of hours wandering around and would recommend a visit if you have a few hours

    If you are interested in precious, old furniture and pieces of art, this newly renovated and extended museum is an unmistakable must.

    After visiting the Royal jewels (2 crowns only) at the Imperial Treasury (meh!), we sauntered about two blocks away to the Dorotheum Auction House, and saw as many interesting jewels here as at the imperial treasury! Also saw lots of beautiful artwork, period furniture, porcelain, and oddities. Mostly we went here to get off our feet and have some lunch at the classy café on the second floor (4th floor). It’s a haul up the stairs if your feet are already tired, so look for the elevator just inside the entrance doors. Lunch was delicious — a curry chicken salad for me and a frankfurter for my husband, served in a beautiful, cushy, quiet café with excellent service. By then our feet were rested enough to look through all the jewelry and artwork, etc. Just outside the door on the nearby streets are a number of fun antique shops as well. I’m definitely more likely to go back to the Dorotheum Auction House than to the Imperial Treasury again.

    This is such a charming, small yet interesting museum tucked away down a side street (or two) close to the main thoroughfare near Stephansdom.
    So many clocks and time pieces from 1400s to the present. Use the QR codes to see and hear the clocks. Not all pieces have a QR code.
    There's one room where the various ticking of the clocks is almost unsettling, like it's pressing you to do something (assuming it is quiet of course, which, early Sunday, it was).
    Loved it! About an hour or so is ample time to spend there.
