Vienna has a fascinating history and is one of the most culturally rich cities in the world. The city is famous for its vibrant music scene, and its historic city centre which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Whatever you want from your city break you’ll be sure to find it in Vienna.
As imposing as it is beautiful, one of the former homes of the Habsburgs, the Shönbrun Palace is an amazing place to visit. The Baroque-style Palace has over 1,400 rooms, and is one of the most popular attractions in the city. 40 of the Palace’s rooms are open to the public, and are authentically furnished in the same way they originally would have been.
The Palace’s gardens are an attraction in themselves, and along with the beautiful collection of plants, they are home to a maze and a labyrinth.
Vienna has a great selection of museums and art galleries for you to explore during your break. One of the best galleries to visit is the Museum Moderner Kunst, otherwise known as MUMOK.
An excellent way to make sure you don’t miss any of Vienna’s many sights is to book yourself on a cycling tour of the city. The tours include bike hire and are run by professional guides who will take you through the streets and give you personal insight into the attractions you pedal past. You get the chance to see the Vienna Opera House, which is built in a neo-Renaissance style, as well as Heldenplatz (Heroes Square).
If you would prefer a tour of the city that requires a little less pedal power there are also city tours that can be enjoyed from the top of a bus. The tours are run in a hop-on, hop-off style and have 15 stops dotted around the city.
Don't miss the city's famous Christmas markets if you're traveling in between mid-November and Christmas.
