“The present PAST...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

Its a travel back in time ... forget the cars and loose yourself among small streets, and experience the 18th century atmosphere. Take time to se the details of the sculptures and paintings, palaces, gardens...imaging yourself linking in Habsbrug court...is not that dificult im modern Vienna.

“Very crowded, and toristy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

When over half of the city was destroyed in WW@, they allowed the builders to put "modern" buildings next to the old buildings, the result is a jarring mishmash of beautiful old, and ugly glass and steel buildings.

“Many palaces, wide windy streets”

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

“Lots to see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

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.
