Top 10 things to do 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!

Hofburg Palace

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.

Schönbrunn Palace

Schönbrunn Palace

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!

Albertina

Albertina

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!

Vienna Rathaus

Vienna Rathaus

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!

Vienna State Opera

Vienna State Opera

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!

Madame Tussauds Vienna

Madame Tussauds Vienna

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!

St. Stephen's Cathedral

St. Stephen's Cathedral

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.

Leopold Museum

Leopold Museum

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.

Mozarthaus

Mozarthaus

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.

Jewish Museum

Jewish Museum

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.

Planning Your Vienna Visit

How many days?

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!

How to get around?

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

Sam was a great guide, saw all of inner city and had a blast!

Sam was a good teacher: had my spouse up and running for 1st time on a segway in 30 seconds at 65 y.o. Saw a lot of Vienna in 3 hours which included a nice and needed coffee break and got to know our guide better and get questions answered. Loved it! So much fun!!

Vienna: City Segway Tour Reviewed by Janet, 10/27/2018

Well researched guide with an extensive knowledge of the time period.

Very personable guide who also had an appropriate yet dry sense of humor, which is a delicate balance in a tour such as this.

Great Wine Tour in the Beautiful Wachau Valley

Our tour guide, Grant provided a clear overview of the arrangements for the day. If you sit on the top of the train there's great views of the villages and countryside. The bikes are good quality and there are a range of sizes to suit all. The majority of the tour uses cycle lanes, so there is very little cycling completed on the roads. The pace of the ride was perfect and relaxed. Enjoyable cycling through the vineyards and villages. It's nice having the tour guide provide information about the wine and areas at the two wineries, with no pressure to buy any wine. It was a very informal and enjoyable day.

Excellent museum. E-ticket has to be printed out

Large variety of item: classical paintings, Egyptian objects, mummies, sculptures, section about fake elements in history. In addition there is currently an exhibition that I did not visit about Vermeer. Price on this site is a bit higher than at the museum but allows you to skip the line. However, there was an issue with using the e-ticket because it had to be printed out. So I had to email it to them to print it then enter the museum

Excellent! Change your voucher for ticket with seat at Musikverein

Amazing performance! Sound is outstanding! Don’t forget to come earlier and change your voucher for ticket. Seats are not assigned so best seats will be gone fast.
