“Beautiful city!!”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

We loved the city's ambience. The intricate details of the historic buildings are just gorgeous. Vienna is a walking city. You need to walk to really appreciate the sites.

“Ideal to get around on foot”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

Full of surprises the center of the old city is pedestrian only and closed to vehicles. Starting at St Stephens Church as the most obvious landmark one can tour palaces, churches, homes ( Mozart's) and Crypts. There are many tours leaving from the center near the information center by carriage,or on foot in all languages. Large pedestrian outdoor streets offer many places to eat or dine in patios, great shopping and sculptures dating back to the 1800's as a back drop. Take your time and leave at least half a day for all there is to see and do.

“Just walk around”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

We walked a ton in Vienna. Just get off the mass transit anywhere and just start walking. Almost every corner we went around we found something to make us say 'Holy cow, look at that!' Also, you might come across some interesting cultural fair or something tucked in an alleyway.
