City Guide Vienna, Austria

Visiting Vienna

Vienna is a city full of surprises. For every breathtaking building you expect to see, there are another two beside it that you don’t. Due to its passionate relationship with classical music grand theatres and ornate opera houses adorn the city centre, but it is also a city bursting with bars and clubs that would feel at home in the hippest of cities. And while it was the seat of the Habsburg Dynasty for so many years, you can live like a king here without upsetting your bank balance.

    This city was very beautiful, clean, and charming! This city offers a bit of everything, to suit different tastes. However, because I went to Vienna in October, the weather was a bit cold.

    Capital of music for sure

    Vienna is a city I know, after the first night, that I will come again. I love the fact they have so many concerts, operas, ballets, performances, museums to visit at a reasonable and even cheap price! This is how art should be made, be accessible. The concert was simply wonderful I almost cried. Love the cafe as well. Overall a city with great culture.

    Vienna is an absolutely fantastic place to go. Brilliantly lit up monumental buildings and public parks littered around the city. It is also a very walkable city with major sites in proximity to each other.

    Insider Tip:If you want to try the local cuisine, it can be hard to find at times. I would suggest checking with the hostel/hotel for the local place to go.
