    With the Vienna Pass we gained free entry to the Palace straight away, although tickets are timed, so in high-season, be prepared to wait for admittance even with a skip-the-line pass. The 40-room Grand Tour took us through large and intimate rooms, all beautifully decorated in different colour schemes and using exquisite materials including porcelain, exotic woods, gold gilt and glass. The grounds could take a couple of days to explore properly, but our highlights were the elegant Palm House and the Gloriette which we saw illuminated and reflected in the reflecting pool at dusk. The topiary, statuary, fountains and glorious rhododendrons in bloom made a sunny afternoon in the grounds quite magical. The histories of some of the residents are quite sad, like the friendless son of Napoleon who lived and died here, his only companion in this gilded cage being the lark that now sits preserved inside a glass dome in his former apartments.
    One minor niggle - the toilets in the grounds near the gloriette charge 50 cents. This seems petty and just encourages people to go in the woods if they don't have a 50 cent coin to hand - not very nice. Free, quality toilet facilities, really ought to be covered by the entrance fee!

    A lifetime experience. You need to have plenty of time to devote because it has many & unique collections. Beyond that, the museum is a piece of art itself. Sadly, a few sections were under maintenance but we are looking forward to visit it again.

    Beautiful views, wonderful historical buildings.
    Vienna has a good public transportation system so you can get there by metro or tram and explore by walking around
    We did the horse tour which was nice too for 50 euros

    We saw penguins, amazing!!! There are signs guiding you. Visitor can easily see which animals are at which direction. Be careful to ask the driver to leave you at the zoo entrance. Otherwise you will have to walk for 20 minutes through the royal gardens. Wonderful walk but not practical of you are in a hurry with 2 kids!!!

    Loved this museum. In addition to the iconic art, the interior of the Albertina is absolutely stunning. The layout was fantastic and easy to navigate. Spent 2 hours. Recommend! No student discount.

    Interesting artifacts and rooms. After seeing other palaces, they all start to look the same. Worth the time/fee but not a must see by any means.

    This museum offers one of the biggest exhibitions I have ever seen. It is beautiful and interactive, providing lots of different areas of interest.
    It has beautiful mineral and animal sections, but my personal favourite was the human evolution.
    What made me an impression was the signs next to some of the animal species saying how endangered they are. This, for me, is very important, as it provides the much needed awareness of our human impact on our planet while being not overwhelming.
    Almost everything is in English and I found the audio guide not of much need, although, it provides additional information. Just keep in mind that the audio guide is €6 which is quite expensive.
    If you plan to go there, I would recommend to go during a weekday in the morning, as it is less crowded.
    Also, it has easy access to toilets + for people with additional needs. And it had a lovely cafe with food at the centre of the museum.

    This is very easy to visit as it is close the centre - you can walk in about 30 minutes or get the D tram from Karlskirche. Tickets can be purchased online on the day which saves queing at the ticket desk and are slightly cheaper. Upper and Lower Belvedere have separate entries (and tickets) - there is not much at the Lower Belvedere but worth a visit if you want to see the current exhibition. The gardens are free.

    Though not religious, I love churches and cathedrals. This one is great! We were lucky to see and hear a musician practising for that evening´s organ concert so this added to the atmosphere. If you can, come here when in Vienna, if just for a few minutes. It is worth it even for non-believers like me :)

    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.

    Eight euro entry fee well spent. Its a great place to pop in to whilst touring the 'bigger' tourist spots or visiting the Albertina as its just next door. Its stunning to look at and very peaceful to wander around. The current exhibition of 'The Emperors Most Beautful Animals' is interesting and the paintings of the animals, birds and insects are exquisite.

    It was a really lovely time for exploration, the evening time in Vienna... There was a good atmosphere out and about, and the evening sun illuminated the church beautifully.

    The Imperial Treasure museum in Vienna is impressive: you can find here several jewels / precious metal / precious stones artifacts, a few portrait paintings, several historical garments (often studded with gold / silver / precious stones / pearls).
    The rooms are definitely too dark to appreciate all the treasures here, especially their details, but it looks like the subdued light is needed for a better conservation of the artifacts, so it's OK.
    A museum that should not be missed on a cultural trip to Vienna!
