Vienna City Guide

Vienna is a Germanic capital city, touched by the arts. The music scene extends back to the time of Mozart and continues to weave its way through the magic of the city. It’s time to discover Vienna.

Getting Around

Vienna is very easy to get around on foot but there are also buses and trams available. Be sure to take the Vienna Ring Road which passes through the oldest historical city centre, Innere Stadt district of Vienna.

Attractions

Schönbrunn Palace is hard to miss with its grand, yellow façade. The former imperial summer residence has 1,441 and is one of the country’s most important architectural monuments. Walk around the beautiful Schönbrunner Schlosspark and stop by the café for a coffee with a gorgeous view.

Mozart Memorial Statue

Keeping on with the castle theme, Hofburg is the former imperial palace, built in the 13th century. From here it’s a short stroll through Heldenplatz to the Mozart Memorial Statue. The statue is located in Burggarten, a beautiful park with a lake and butterfly house.

At the end of the park is Staatsopernmuseum, the opera history museum.

The streets of Vienna

Discover the city’s religious history at Karlskirche, a beautiful baroque church located on the south side of Karlsplatz. The church’s beauty is matched only by the city’s Catholic Church, St. Stephen’s Cathedral.

There are a number of museums scattered throughout the city. We didn’t have time to explore them ourselves but that just gives us more reasons to return to the beautiful city.

Recommendations

If you can, be sure to watch a live performance at the Vienna State Opera theatre. It’s a great way to experience Vienna’s history. It’s a little pricy but if you’re a musician or simply appreciate good music I can guarantee it’s worth it!
