“Baroque streetscapes and imperial palaces set the stage for Vienna’s artistic and musical masterpieces alongside its coffee-house culture and vibrant epicurean and design scenes.”

Lonely Planet


What to see and do

Sightsee on foot as the Innere Stadt is small and most places are a short walk from Stephensplatz.

Use the tram or the U-Bahn to explore outer neighbourhoods

Spend time over coffee and cake at one of Vienna’s living rooms and enjoy the Beisins (bistro pubs) and wine bars.


The Stephandom (St Stephen’s Cathedral) is a Gothic masterpiece and towers over Stephansplatz, the pedestrianized central square. Highlights are the cathedral’s spectacular main nave, stone pulpit the catacombs and the South Tower with views over the city.


The Hofburg

The Hofburg palace complex was the seat of the Hapsburgs. Exhibits include relics of the Holy Roman Empire and the Hapsburg crown jewels. It is best explored during the quiet hours of the morning and early evening.


The MuseumsQuartier

One of the world’s most ambitious cultural spaces. It is a collection of museums and galleries that cannot be seen in one day. Don’t miss the Scheile collection at the Leopold Museum and Viennese Actionsim at the MUMOK.


The Belvedere

One of Vienna’s finest baroque palaces. Do not miss the world’s largest Klimt collection, frescoed apartments and the gardens full of sculptures.



A square framed by four monumental public buildings: the Rathaus which is the City Hall, the Burgtheater, Parliament and the Universität.

Schloss Schonbrunn

Magnificent rococo former summer palace and gardens of the Hapsburgs. Visit the frescoed, gilded, chandelier filled glory of its ornate apartments


The Kunsthistorisches Museum
