Laid back and very cool
The best thing about Vienna is that it's pretty laid back for a very large city. And we are talking about a city that used to be the capital of a large empire in Europe, so you have lots of palaces, museums, cafes, cathedrals, parks, monuments. On top of that, you have major events happening all the time and almost little traffic. You get the vibe in the cafes and restaurants that the Viennese are really relaxed and friendly. This is probably one of the best places to relax in Europe.
Insider Tip:Lottery tickets often come with free museum admission on some days of the year. This will shave the cost of seeing museums tremendously, so do check what is available.
