The opera is awesome, wonderful sculpture all around the city
However, the place is rather grey, cold stone is everywhere

Lots of monuments and memorials. If you are into history, you'll be in your element. Franz Joseph seems to be quite popular. Beethoven's burial place is miles away.

This is a true, Imperial city, meant to awe the empire's lowly subjects. They've kept the massive buildings intact and they are a joy to see. The Hapsburg Palace is the center jewel, with massive library, Spanish Riding School and the Household Museum filled with gold- and silverware, copper cookery, porcelain dishes and Meissen candelabra. You really get a feeling for how the Emperors and Empresses lived.

The cathedral is magnificent and worth going in to see. But if you are interested in shopping, go to Kagran (near the end of underground line U1). The Mall right outside the station is massive!!
