There's so much great architecture in Vienna that I can walk its streets for weeks in amazement. Old and new coexist with amazing harmony. Trams, metro, and buses make traversing this city very easy. For the more fit of us, you can rent a bicycle and enjoy twice as much in the same time. There cafes and bars everywhere, but beware less than half of them accept credit cards. Major bummer for us, americans.

What is there not too like: lots of history and beautiful architecture, all within a very compact area that can easily be walked (with the exception of Belvedere and Schönbrunn).
Vienna offers some of the world´s finest museums, great music, excellent restaurants and great shopping (except on Sundays).
Much of the inner city is pedestrian area, filled with lovely cafes, great for enjoying the wonderful Viennese coffee and cakes and people watching.
There are lots of things to see and do all year round, there is never a bad time for Vienna.
Come and enjoy!

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 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.

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