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.

    Give yourself enough time!

    Unfortunately we only had a day and two nights in Vienna and I wish we could have stayed longer. I definitely want to return to spend some time looking around the estates that surround the city. There were some beautiful churches to visit though, very comfortable cosmopolitan city and some great museums. (Partying left as average as we didn't have time).

    Insider Tip:Give yourself enough time to see as much as possible!

    No free walking tours

    It was unfortunate that Vienna does not offer free walking tours (you leave a tip at the end). This is a big miss for the city compared to other European cities.

    Vienna is a beautiful city with lots a great sites all within walking distance of each other. The entrance fees are, however, very high for all the buildings and museums.. I did not gopartying or eating out so I scored those as average.

    Insider Tip:The Schönbrunn might be 15km out of the city centre but it is definately worth a visit! It is only a short trip with the tube. The gardens were free of admission when we were there.

    Perfect city break!

    Vienna has sooo many sights and bars and cafés and clubs to fill your days with. The weather was lovely (mid August). It is slightly more expensive than Eastern Europe but we'll worth the visit.

    Insider Tip:You can get a train to Bratislava in Slovakia really easily and only takes an hour! Good for a day trip.

    Expensive city. Like extremely expensive city. Your money will not go a long way there. It's nice beause its very clean and pretty, but if you are a broke backpacker like myself I would not recommend more than a few days there
