Among the museums, churches, palaces and archeological digs, you can learn about the occupants of Vienna from pre-history through the Roman settlements to the Middle Ages, Renaissance, Age of Enlightenment, the remarkable 19th century, the World Wars up to the present. Reading at least one History of the Habsburgs in advance is recommended. It makes every museum or palace visit a deeper experience.

If you want to see Schonbrunn book on-line or as a 'Gold pass' at a less popular site because the ticket queues are enormous, even mid-week.

Vienna is a must-see European city. It is on my list of a few cities I visit repeatedly with pleasure. The 1st district is like an outdoor museum, the city has some something great to offer each season of the year. The richness and culture of the past are still very visible in the present. Makes for an excellent city trip back in time.

Spacious and plenty to see and ride on visit the Wheel in Vienna and take a trip across the top of Vienna then come back to the ground and look up. The stars look great above the park and if you lay down on the ground you feel your in the universe looking out.

Food in Vienna is quite diverse, and the quality is top shelf. Prices may not be that low, but it is to be expected with any European capital. Don't limit yourself to the old "schnitzel and strudel"

Slowly it is not a race, while your walking Vienna is alive around you, don't stare look and smile then think it is an old city with young people and older people enjoying the beauty of each other and the scenery.

The Vienna subway is reliable and at low-costs; if by car, I recommend to find a so called park & ride parking places, which are at a very good price, and to take the subway to visit the city center
