This city always finds ways to surprise and delight you. Just take in its unique atmosphere, which is rich in history and tradition, yet also fresh and upbeat.
The city centre is a small universe in itself: discover historical palaces face to face with modern facades, and elegant boutiques next to trendy fashion stores.
When it comes to food, you should definitely try famous Austrian dishes such as 'Wiener Schnitzel' (breaded escalope of veal) and treat yourself to coffee and a slice of cake at one of Vienna's many cafés.
Music lovers may jump at a chance to see 'Le nozze di Figaro' or 'Tosca' at the Staatsoper, while others may prefer more modern fare offered during the annual 'Wiener Festwochen' festival.
Get a feel of Vienna's art scene during a city walking tour, or while visiting one of Vienna's many museums. Must-sees will include Gustav Klimt shows both at Albertina and Belvedere Palace.
Sights not to be missed are St. Stephen's Cathedral right in the heart of the city, Schloss Schönbrunn, and the Giant Ferris Wheel at the 'Prater' fairground.
