Vienna Pocket Guide

Images Of 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.

Vienna City Reviews

    Vienna - August 2015

    The city has nice palaces, gardens as well as museums. Very good architecture. I feel 2-3 days would be sufficient to see the city.

    Insider Tip:Try and see a concert/opera at the Opera Haus.

    See you in 30 years, Vienna!

    We can't wait to go back to Vienna when we're older. We're both 21 at the moment and I feel that we could've happily spent just one day here. It's a place of relaxation and spending money on eating out and drinking... Which we don't have the money to do as students.

    Insider Tip:If you're there during the film festival go down and take a look if only for the food carts!

    Short trip

    Only stayed for 1 afternoon passing through. You can definitely see all the sights in 1 day. Beautiful city but wouldnt stay longer than a couple of days.

    Insider Tip:Parks near the university have free deck chairs to chill in the sun. Good shopping and pretty sights.

    Imperial city, pricey but lovely

    The charm of Vienna leaves Paris in shame. Its streets and monuments all speak of a glorious past. Visiting it in autumn is just perfect and with the Christmas markets going on in every square of the city, the whole experience is just marvelous. Metro network is very convenient as well.

    Least Favorite CIty In Europe

    I did not like Vienna at all. Mediocre food (unless you love sausages), high prices, the people who work in transportation are the rudest I have ever come across. I love to travel, and have never want to turn people off from going to a location as much as Vienna.

    Insider Tip:Honestly, just skip it.
