  • No other city in the world can be like Vienna. It would take three life times to see it all, and then a fourth to see what you have forgotten! Don't get into the tourist traps, but read about Vienna, get a good city map, learn some German, and venture out into the city filled with secret, small passages, Cafés, wonderful museums and very good food.
  • A truly beautiful sight. There are several buildings in this location. All with amazing and intriguing designs, statues, patterns and carvings. The area is very clean. Taking pics and stopping to admire can be uncomfortable as the area is extremely busy(as it should be). So better go in the morning or early afternoon on weekdays. During holidays, the area is decorated beautifully. Taxis and cars will find it difficult to pass the streets here due to excess pedestrians. All in all, amazing place, definitely a most visit when you are in Vienna.
