“Beautiful buildings, great for exploring”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

Very pretty buildings. We just wandered around and didn't do any tours. Those who like culture could easily find concerts for the evenings and all sorts of museums for the day.

“Vienna is absolutely fantastic”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

Vienna is from now on one of my favorites central european cities, is amazing, beautiful and full of history, and yet modern and very well adapted. Elevators everywhere to go with either wheelchairs or kid prams.

“Not dissimilar to Paris or Budapest”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

nothing truly spectacular in the city centre. St Stephen's is impressive but otherwise typical turn of the entury architecture.

“Overwhelming volume of impressive architecture and sculptures”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

The first you walk there, especially if it's in the evening, you are simply astonished by the number of palaces, statutes, sculptures, gardens and what have you. I find it hard to remember another city with similar number of so many impressively decorated buildings on such a big, yet concentrated area. It's simply amazing and seems to overwhelm you. Especially since in these days Austria does not seem to be such a world center. But then when you stretch your memory (or google a bit, if you never learned about it) it comes to your mind, that this was the capital of the impressive historical Austro-Hungarian empire. And that explains it. With all the carriages roaming around, you can easily picture the way this capital used to look in the past.Astonishing sites and places to visit. Hard to take it all in a single visit.

“An Excellent place to go”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

You will find all the attractions in this area. Lot of good restaurants and quite many shops. Most of the attractions are within walking distance from each other.
