The "must see" is only because it is popular and has a great history. There are however way more exiting things to do in Vienna. So if you have the chance to go there take it and enjoy.

Not the longest ride of your life but for sure worth doing. The Ferris wheel offers really good views of the city with plenty of chances to take amazing photos. The Ferris wheel is within an amusement park so plenty to do around.

The best part about this wheel, is the fact it is over 100 years old. Magnificent engineering, takes you up to see some wonderful views of Prague. Don't let over reviewers put you off, this is a must in Vienna.

Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The
second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from
medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from
pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current
hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative
crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city center and
take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old
townhouses, churches, theaters, discount shops and
