“Very busy and crowded”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

We went into the city center most days. It was very crowded and busy--lots of tourists--almost like being in New York. There were great small restuarants and shops, but it was busy most of the time.

“Astonishing architecture”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

The historic centre is amazing. Unless you have an official guide with you, it's a good idea to study a little bit beforehand.

“Grand buildings, nice and clean”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

Vienna is a beautiful city, full of grandiose buildings, alive with restaurants and cafes. I wasn't blown away by the coffee, but it wasn't bad neither. I had a fantastic time enjoying Christmas markets and the mandatory gluhwein and wurstels that go with it. Savour the classical music at the Musikveiren or the Staat Oper as well
