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.

    Free concerts in the park

    Vienna has a FANTASTIC music- night-life. Do a little research to find out when and where they show free operas, have free concerts in the park, etc. Didn't plan ahead this time, and really missed out. MUST DO for nature lovers: The Park at Schloss Shonbrunn.

    Nice place but too modern

    Nice place but too many modern decoration in the ground floor of old buildings. The music atmosphere is not so strong as expected, especially when comparing to Salzburg. But still a wonderful city.

    Vienna is are incredible city people are very good, the building are amazing as well the gardens and the palaces. Without a doubt a must be back city. Everything on it is amazing and the country is famous for their palaces, operas and mainly all cultural stuffs.

    Insider Tip:Visit the Palaces, BOTH of them, some people forget that there are two. At Schönbrunn Palace try to get there early there are a lot to cover, recommend the Classic Pass if you are not a fan of zoo. The Sisi shop inside is a good place to buy souvenirs. Even if you are not a fan go see an opera at Opera House, it is just amazing the inside it self worth it. There are standing ticket for about 4-5 euros, just be there around 2 hours early to get them. Shops are near the Opera house.
