Top Tours & Activities in Vienna
Vienna still bears the hallmarks of historic opulence, proudly displaying some of the most exquisite architecture in Europe, as well as many of Austria's top attractions. Here are the best things to see and do between your sausage and schnitzel!
Vienna's ornate Imperial Palace was the center of the Habsburg dynasty's power for seven centuries! Visit its chapel on Sundays for High Mass to see the Vienna Boys' Choir perform.
The picturesque grounds of Schönbrunn Palace, the Habsburgs' former summer home, boast a gloriette, palm house, zoo, and even artificial Roman ruins. Few tours offer so much bang for your buck!
Home to the most valuable collection of graphical illustrations in the world, the Albertina is located on the grounds of the Hofburg Palace, making it the perfect follow-up tour!
The Neo-Gothic town hall is one of the city's most famous landmarks, but the administrative building also houses the historic Rathauskeller – one of the best restaurants in Vienna!
The Vienna State Opera is home to one of the world's best and most prolific opera companies. You may well go on every day of your trip and never see the same show twice!
Visitors to this established family favorite can mingle with some of the most famous figures on the planet. At the Madame Tussauds Vienna you may also discover few Austrians you might not recognize!
From the huge church bells in its tower down to the famous bodies in its catacombs, the unmissable St. Stephen's Cathedral stands out as one of Vienna's best sights.
Located in Vienna's Museumsquartier, the Leopold exhibits one of the largest collections of modern Austrian art, including famous works by Egon Schiele and Gustav Klimt.
Mozart only lived in this house for three years but, as Mozarthaus is his only surviving residence, its central location makes it perfect for this comprehensive exhibition on his life and works.
The Jewish museum offers insight into the eventful history of Jewish life and culture in Vienna. It's actually spread across two locations: Dorotheergasse and Judenplatz.
You could see the sights of Vienna in three or four days but, if you can, it's worth booking longer in order to fully experience its exhibitions, concerts, and highbrow cultural life!
Vienna's public transport network is excellent. With buses, trams, trains, and relatively new metro lines, hiring a car will be more hassle than it's worth! Taxis are affordable and the city's bicycle friendly too, so consider renting two wheels for your stay if you've got the legs for it!

What people are saying about Vienna
We deliberately booked the last show. The facilitator was charming ... perfect personality for his job ... and the end result was a little slice of heaven! Well worth it.
What a great communicator Barbara is. I would highly recommend this tour. Excellent value for money.
The museum holds some extremely important Old Master works of art, and has a fabulous collection. It is a must see if in Vienna. The ticket experience was poor. After buying the tickets online, in order to use the electronic voucher, you must download the App from the App Store. This doesn't work very well when data is extremely slow. After finally getting the App, it took several tries to get the electronic voucher. Then upon entry, I was turned away, because the museum said they need a standard barcode, but "Get Your Guide" prints a 3-D Barcode that their scanner can't scan. After complaining because we already paid, I was sent to the desk inside, where they asked me to email the tickets to them,, they had to print them, then bring back to the entrance gate to scan the printed tickets. This all took about 30 minutes, and we only had 2 hours before closing, limiting our time to 90 minutes inside this wonderful museum. We asked if we could come back the following day, but no.
We bought two day ticket. Did all the routes including free night tour and free guided walk around the city. All staff very knowledgeable and helpful A MUST FOR FIRST TIME VISITOR TO THIS BEAUTIFUL CLEAN CITY
Such concert in Vienna creates lot of positive emotions: Thank You for the enjoyable concert.
