Vienna centre is very beautiful and has plenty of things to do. First of all, we recommend to do a walking tour so you can learn lots about the history of the city and its imperial past – it used to be the capital of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, which is related to the history of many of its buildings. One of them is the Hofburg Palace, which was the past seat of the Emperor. You can go on a guided visit to the palace as well, which is well worth it: The inside is as impressive as its façade. You can also visit the many churches and cathedrals, such as the St. Stephen’s Cathedral
, one of the main symbols of the city, or Karlskirche, which is also an impressive view. You can go to Mozarthaus Vienna and visit the Vienna State Opera
so you can learn about the relation of Vienna centre and classical music.
You can’t leave Vienna without visiting some of its museums. In Vienna centre you will find the Albertina, which has an impressive collection of prints and drawings, and in Museumsquartier
you will find some other very important ones, such as the Leopold Museum, the MUMOK and the Kuntshalle Wien.
Another fun thing to do in Vienna centre is to go to the Naschmarkt
located next to the U-Bahn station of Kettenbrückengasse, a food market, where you can grab a bite and experience the lively atmosphere of Vienna. To get to know the modern Vienna, you can also get lost in the little streets of Neubau.
