Spread the love

Destination Vienna. The Austrian capital is a city where I go always with pleasure because it gives emotions. I have always positive feelings and surprises. It is a place where I usually go for work reasons, so I don’t have so much time for tourism. That’s maybe why I can have each time surprises. My last time I had the chance, at my arrival, to walk around. This is what I really like. Walk and discover monuments, attractions, and hidden corners. Yes, I really love to explore the places where I go in the less known points.

I have to say that traveling for work gave me the chance to visit places where only locals go. Anyway, in Vienna I could mix, so I saw the main attractions plus something that is usually not part of the tourism itineraries. In this post, I am going to give you some descriptions and opinion about the main things I visited. I also share here some of my pictures but keep in mind that I took them in different seasons and I selected the bests. Then I hope you will enjoy my short guide of Vienna, you can get inspiration for your trip.

Vienna: around the center

The city offers you a huge variety of monuments and museums, to visit them I suggest you use the Vienna City Card. It is valid for one (€ 17), two (€ 25), or three (€ 29) days. It includes the free use of public transports, discounts on the entrance fee of a big variety of museums. There is also a card called Vienna Pass, made by a private company for different cities. They propose also the fast track inside museums. I wrote this because I highly recommend you to purchase the card. You will save money and time during your stay. Also if I go there to work, I buy the card for one day, because I have the chance to see something for cheaper prices and move easily.

I also suggest you walk, because in downtown it is full of beauties. The buildings and the parks deserve to be seen. There are also very nice churches. The architecture shows the prestige of Habsburg. The shopping street, the main square, the park, and a lot of museums are located in downtown. Everything is in a walking distance, that’s why my advice is to visit the main part of the city on foot. It is also easy to find some small events on the streets, many of them are reminding classical music. Vienna is a temple for that and it has also a lovely museum, called Haus der Musik Museum, where you can interact with Mozart, Haydn, and Beethoven. It is not only made to explore the world of classical music, but also to learn how to listen to it.

Vienna: some information about the city

Vienna is the capital of Austria and the littlest of the nine government territories as districts. It is home to 23 regions and was first archived as a city in 1137. In 1155, it turned into the home of the dukes of the House of Babenberg, trailed by the House of Habsburg which ruled for no under 640 years. The city is a magnificent ornate city, which is outstanding for Maria Theresa’s rule just as Emperor Franz Joseph I and his cherished spouse, Empress Elisabeth of Austria (otherwise known as Sissi).

There are a couple of things you have to think about when visiting Vienna. The city is sheltered, with an incredible foundation of transports, cable cars, trains, and metros which are running on time and can take you essentially all over the place. This makes discovering convenience in Vienna a lot easier, in light of the fact that regardless of where you are, there is extraordinary open transport accessible inside minutes stroll from your home.

Vienna has a huge measure of eateries and cafés. Practically all extensive metro stations have pastry shops for a speedy lift me up a tidbit. For something valid, ensure you attempt different customary dishes and beverages. We prescribe the Viennese Schnitzel, the Sturm (Federweiss in Germany), Apfelstrudel (apple strudel) and obviously, the omnipotent Viennese Coffee. There is a must: Sacher Torte. You have to taste it if you are in Vienna. It is a chocolate cake with jam.

Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna

Out of the city center, there is the Schönbrunn Palace, a UNESCO Cultural Heritage Site. It is one of the most visited attractions. What’s that? Amid Maria Theresa’s rule turned into the majestic summer home. The Schönbrunn is a Baroque castle and has 1,441-rooms. It is a standout amongst the most essential engineering, social, and authentic landmarks in Austria. I highly recommend coming here! It’s very well laid out and interactive, with a free audio guide with your ticket.

The palace and museum focus on the royalty who lived here, particularly, Franz Joseph. He, at 18, became ruler and survived the suicide of his son and the murder of his wife Sisi. He was beloved by the country for his hard work ethic. The baroque beauty is inside and out of this lovely palace. You can even spend the night there. You can easily see that this is why Mozart was invited to perform here at age six. Don’t forget to check out the beautiful gardens and head up for a view. There is a zoo inside the palace grounds.

Art and history in Vienna

Vienna is full of art and history everywhere, in each corner. Anyway, there are some places in the city where you can see amazing artworks and get in touch with the most important stages of local and European history. Among the museums and spaces, I suggest you visit the Albertina Gallery. But it is not the only one. Let’s proceed step by step.

Vienna architecture 23 1440x1920 - Vienna: elegant beautyVienna architecture 24 1440x1080 - Vienna: elegant beautyVienna architecture 25 1440x1080 - Vienna: elegant beauty

State Hall Of The Austrian National Library

The State Hall of the Austrian National Library is one of the world’s most lovely noteworthy libraries. Today, the State Hall houses 200,000 important books distributed somewhere in the range of 1501 and 1850.

Albertina

Situated in the core of the city, Albertina is the biggest previous private Habsburg living arrangement. Today Albertina houses a stunning cluster of workmanship, including changeless and impermanent shows. On the off chance that I could prescribe one single activity in Vienna, a visit to the Albertina would be it. I cherished the accumulations to such an extent. I got the opportunity to see Monet and Picasso (perpetual), just as the Raffaello (transitory) and the Bruegel accumulations (brief). Many times they run temporary and thematic exhibitions.

Hundertwasser Haus

Just a couple of avenues from the Kunst Haus Museum, the Hundertwasser Haus is an excessively vivid condo. You can’t really visit it, yet you can take pictures from outside. Inside the house, there are 53 lofts, 4 workplaces, 16 private porches, 3 collective patios, and a sum of 250 trees and brambles. It is viewed as a social legacy.

Majestic Burial Vault

Otherwise called the Capuchin Crypt, the majestic entombment vault is the resting spot of the sovereigns and rulers of the House of Habsburg. It is intriguing to visit, as the Crypt itself has different designed pine boxes, at the end of the day it is somewhat dreary. I felt as I was in a memorial park. In any case, to be there was like to be part of the historical event described by this attraction.

Leopold Museum

The Leopold Museum is situated in the Quarter Museum and has some critical Viennese Art Nouveau, Wiener Werkstätte, and expressionism. I found really interesting to explore the art evolution in the country. Vienna is well known for the ancient architecture and for all the artistic expressions of the past, but it is also important for modern and contemporary art.

Mumok Museum

Mumok is the biggest gallery of present day and contemporary craftsmanship in Central Europe. On the off chance that you like Pop Art, Cubism, Futurism and Surrealism, at that point this is the spot for you. I love art and even if I prefer the ancient artworks, I am so curious to see all the expressions. This museum is well organized and it helps the visitor to accomplish a journey into the art, passing by the different periods.

History Museum

The Natural History Museum opened in 1889. It has an astonishing gathering, including the celebrated “Venus of Willendorf”, a 29,500-year-old ancient rarity. It additionally houses the biggest and most seasoned shooting star accumulation on the planet. Some of the finds are really surprising me because you expect the usual things that tell how was the evolution of the animals, or how changed nature in the country. In Vienna, there are spectacular objects. That’s why I suggest you visit it.

Upper And Lower Belvedere

The Belvedere is a UNESCO Heritage Site. It highlights wonderful greenery enclosures which interface two castles. The Upper Belvedere is home to the world’s biggest accumulation of Gustav Klimt’s craft. Instead, the Lower Belvedere highlights numerous brief craftsmanship shows. This marvelous site will leave you speechless, it is so amazing.

Bank Austria KunstForum

Another must in Vienna for art lovers is the epic Bank Austria KunstForum. This place is incredible for exemplary innovation, impressionism and vanguard darlings. I was so amped up for seeing some mind-boggling accumulations. You can see artworks of Van Gogh, Cézanne and Toulouse-Lautrec. It is an uncommon and precious collection.

Hofburg Palace

The Hofburg is the former principal imperial palace of the Habsburg dynasty rulers and today serves as the official residence and workplace of the President of Austria. If you are not a friend of the President, you can’t enter, but there are some wings open for visits because they are not part of the institutions. It is the case of the Sisi Museum, Imperial Apartments, and Silver Collection. You can relive the glories of Sisi age.

St. Stephen’s Cathedral

It is not only the main Catholic church in Vienna, but it is a superb example of Romanesque and Gothic architecture. The religious building is also an important piece of Austrian and European history. Habsburg family had many events inside the Cathedral. I suggest you enter and to see the marvelous artworks.

Opera

I have never had the chance to enter, but also from outside the Opera building deserve some pictures. The architecture and the decorations of one of the most important constructions in Vienna are really amazing. It is in downtown, so you don’t have to walk too much to reach it. Of course, if you love classical music, ballet or this type of art, you will be in the temple of it. So don’t miss the chance. On my wish list, there is the New Year’s Concert…

Attractions

In Vienna there are not only art and history, here you have some other suggestions. One of the pillars of the city, so you should attend a concert. Then enjoy the view from the top. Let me describe a few more places where you have to go to the Austrian capital.

Traditional Music Concert In Vienna

You are in the capital of traditional music, so getting tickets to an established show is a flat out must. I had an experience listening to Mozart Requiem at the St. Charles Church. It was a great concert, in a sublime atmosphere. The congregation was staggering, looked glorious, particularly around evening time. You can easily verify online about events and concert. Also on the official Vienna website. Purchase the tickets in advance because they are limited and many people want them.

Giant Ferris Wheel

The Vienna Giant Ferris Wheel has been turning since 1897. It offers a perspective on Vienna from above: extraordinary! The wheel pivots gradually which empowers you to get relentless photos of the city. Have a tour, you will be happy.

What else?

No, don’t worry, it is not George Clooney’s question for Nespresso. I want to give you a few more advice about what to see in Vienna. Something maybe less common. I discovered some nice places thanks to my contacts, but of course, I listed them according to my taste. Try to read and get inspiration. You know, I love to know better the real cities. The itineraries for tourists are interesting therefore they are somehow a must, but those places are not part of real life. That’s why I have to go around where only locals go.

Naschmarkt

According to my opinion, this is one of the coolest approaches to begin the day. The market offers intriguing sustenances and flavors from all around the globe, just as extraordinary leafy foods. There are a few eateries where you can appreciate informal breakfast. It can get a little occupied throughout the end of the week, yet it’s a fun spot in any case. I prescribe attempting the gigantic green olives and feta cheddar with some newly heated bread. You will be delighted.

Lainzer Tiergarten (Hike)

If you are sick of historical sites, I propose an alternative. Because you may need a break from all that art. A short climbing outing. Take the U4 tram as far as possible of the line (Hütteldorf), at that point pursue the signs to Lainzer Tiergarten. Once you are there go to the Rohrhaus by following either the red (longer course) or orange (shorter course) signs. En route, you will have a lot of photograph openings. Appreciate all-encompassing perspectives on Vienna, climb through thick woodlands and deeply inhale outside air. Nature is great over there. 

The Globe Museum

This is one of the exceptional accumulations of the Austrian National Library (however in an alternate space). It is the Globe Museum: the main exhibition hall on the planet with globes. Counting globes both earthly and divine (in the prime of globular maps, they regularly came in sets) the accumulation holds in excess of 600 examples, with 200 or so in plain view at some random time. There are inflatable texture globes, small handheld globes, and goliath globes as expansive as an individual. It is an amazing place, especially if you love geography.

Esperanto Museum

The second remarkable gathering supervised by the Austrian National Library is the Department of Planned Languages and Esperanto Museum, or the Esperanto Museum for short. This one of a kind accumulation gathers relics identified with the built language that was created during the 1880s as a conceivable all inclusive tongue. While it never truly got on in the manner in which its creator would have loved, it remains the best-made language ever. The accumulation holds such peculiarities as soft drink jars written in Esperanto just as a huge number of books, flyers, and bits of ephemera identified with the language. 

Gasometer Town

Four round structures, used in past for gas depressurizing, are now buildings for people. In 1984 the company closed them down. Because of the new gas control systems. Those buildings were out of date, so the city of Vienna transformed the group of four of delightful structures into lodging networks. Notwithstanding the living spaces, there are workplaces and retail stores. The gas houses keep on being utilized as lodging right up ’til the present time and have built up an astonishing feeling of a network.

Final thoughts

Vienna is an elegant city, full of things to do and to discover. It is safe. I have to say that walking in the late evening you might be in some dark and empty streets, but never in danger. You can spend there a few days or a week. More time you will stay in the Austrian capital, more chances you will have to see the surroundings. I can’t say how much time you need to see all the listed places, because I saw them in many different breaks, in various season. Anyway, you will be happy to have a long holiday in Vienna. It is full of opportunities for travelers.

You will have many options on where to sleep if you want my advice, read about the boutique hotel I have tried. It is the same for meals, you can easily find all that you want. There are Michelin star restaurants, fast food and so on. In my opinion, you should consider a dinner at the famous Hotel Sacher’s restaurant. Are you searching for traditional food? Don’t miss the Wiener Schnitzel and the Sacher Torte. I don’t know your taste, but I think they will make you happy, especially dessert.
