The capital of Austria is one of the classiest, romantic cities in Europe. From the imperial architecture left behind by the Habsburg monarchy to its rich cultural and artistic heritage, Vienna is at once a contemporary city and a tribute to the great minds of the past. In Vienna, you'll get to experience a unique mix of art and music, architecture and dining, and much more. Strolling through the cobblestone streets amid Baroque architecture and museums will keep you busy all day long.
For a smallish city, there's a lot to do, see, hear, and taste. Home to some of the great composers like Mozart, Beethoven, and Strauss, it's no surprise that Vienna is known as the City of Music. The city also boasts a variety of magnificent venues where you can take in a night of classical music. If you prefer the art and design scene, visit the classical and imperial art museums or the contemporary galleries in the MuseumsQuartier. And of course — no visit to Vienna is complete without a visit to the elegant Schonbrunn Palace.
After a long day of sightseeing, sit back and enjoy some fine Viennese cuisine. Famous for being the home of Wiener schnitzel, Tafelspitz (prime boiled beef), and apfelstrudel (apple strudel), try as many local specialties as possible; you can even pair them with a glass of fine Austrian wine. Vienna's dining scene is world-renowned for both its local and international delicacies.
From refined restaurants and lavish architecture to classy exhibitions and cultural museums, you don't need to be royal to feel regal in Vienna. The magical atmosphere will have you wanting to extend your stay just a little longer.
