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

  • 90%



    This city needs the time you can spare to get to every inch of it because you'll want to see every inch! There is so much culture and history and the sights are just amazing! I cannot stress enough the richness of how beautiful it is and how incredibly friendly the locals are!

    Insider Tip:Take a bus tour or walking tour and get the feel for the city first, its huge and theres so much to do! Go to the opera house 2 hours before a performance for standing room and tickets are only 3 euros!

    Not worth the trip

    Vienna is not all that beautiful or interesting, there isn't that much to do there. Not worth the trip

    One of the most amazing cities in the world

    It's really astonishing the sheer amount of buildings worth seeing, the museeums and the quality of the expos presented, and all the cultural activities going on pretty much all the time. I just wish I had enough time to see it all.

    Insider Tip:Download the app quando Wien for super easy navigation of the whole public transit network. And you should definitely go to the opera. If you cannot afford buying normal tickets to the events, you can always try and get Standing Area tickets. They are just 4€ so money is definitely not an excuse, especially when you are already willing to pay the same sort money for tacky souvenirs or beers.

    Posh City!

    Vienna is ripe with elegant history and a hub for the arts. Could spend several days here just looking at the museums.

    Insider Tip:Schedule a visit to the Spanish Riding School morning practice and a day show if you have the time. The Royal Library is a treat for bookworms. TeWa in the Nachmarket for those who like middle eastern cuisine. People seen to dress very tailored here, I wouldn't recommend wearing jean with holes etc. if you are looking to blend in.

    Vienna is an amazing city, definitely at the top of my list. I had just a day, and I was able to get around to see everything that I wanted that day, public transport is a dream (although it was a very long day!). Definitely wish I had more time!

    Insider Tip:Buy the Vienna transit ticket (either 24hrs, 48thrs, 72hrs, and so on), it's so much cheaper than buying each train/tram/bus ticket! I got the 24hr one and it was unlimited, so I used that thing all day. Only €7.80 I believe for the 24hr one, and I got it from Wein Westbahnhof.
