About Vienna

Including tips for the best time to visit Vienna

With all of Vienna's imperial palaces, countless architectural achievements, and a world-renowned cafe culture, there's almost too much to do in Austria's amazing capital.

The historic city center is like an open-air museum, so it's no surprise it was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Ringstrasse Boulevard is lined with beautiful buildings like the Rathaus (town halll), the Spanish Riding School, and the Hofburg Palace. However, the best place to check out the city's main sights is in the MuseumsQuartier – a collection of great museums, as well as cozy cafes and bars all housed in former stables. Highlights include the MUMOK, Leopold Museum, Kunsthalle, Architekturzentrum, and the interactive children's museum Zoom.

Enjoy the unique atmosphere of Vienna's coffee shops at Café Schwarzenberg—the oldest café on the Ringstrasse—which serves traditional liver dumpling soup and apple strudel. There's also Café Central, where icons like Leo Trotsky and Sigmund Freud used to gather. Then head over to the Riesenrad for some beautiful views over the city. This classic Ferris wheel is 215 feet tall and takes about 20 minutes to make a full rotation.

Vienna International Airport is right outside the city limits and can be reached easily by train, bus or taxi.

March 16, 2020

Unfortunately, because of Coronavirus, the Austria government decided to close most of the public places that tourists go. We were unable to visit many places we planned on going, so there's nothing much to give a review at this time. Stores and restaurants close kind of early. If you can navigate the public transportation system, it is very convenient to get around the city, and buying a 24 hour (or 48 hour, etc.) pass is worth the money.

The city is just beautiful, though I'd recommend to travel in the Spring/ summer as it's a bit grey in the winter. The city center is just close to everything, you can walk from one place to another, very comfortable and easy transport and delicious food.

I really enjoyed going to the Tiergarten, and the market. I wish I would have had time to go see any of the museums, or go to something at the Opera house. We also enjoyed doing the musical event at St. Anne's Church, and can highly recommend it (You can find it on trip adviser as one of the top rated events). You can pass on the Sachar Torte at the Hotel Sachar- we found the torte dry and uninspiring.

Vienna is a city for the soul.

March 8, 2020

Vienna is a city for the soul. If you don’t have one, then go to Paris. Vienna takes time to get to know. You should explore on your own, not with groups. I like Vienna as a foodie town. The Austrian wines are the best with their foods. Their winds are underrated, which makes them the best value. Vienna has vineyards to hike through, within the city limits, and small wine villages to explore. There is so much culture here. But do fun stuff too, like Prater Amusement park, wich is older than the US Republic.

it was mainly a business trip, but I had time to visit some places in Vienna. I wanted to go outside the city, but the weather was not so favorable. I recommend visiting during spring and summer (May-Jully).
