New Year's Day - what is open?

I will be in Vienna for the first time over New Year. I have Jan 1 free to sight see/shop. What, if anything, will be open ?

Will the shops be closed? If most things are closed, has anyone got any suggestions on what to do?

1. Re: New Year's Day - what is open?

Most all shops will be closed on New Years Eve and Day.

Major sightseeing places will be New Years - exception those that usually close on Monday ( New Years Day) such as the Kunsthistoriches Museum ( Fine Arts Museum) will be closed .

Schönbrunn Palace is open daily.

Most all music venues are open also-

Thus much to do.

Schönbrunn is a good place to go this day as fewer tourists at least in the morning Hofburg Palace too.
