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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The tour in English was great. Sofia showed so much passion for the SR

Wonderful! I was really pleased to hear that no costs and effort are spared to give the horses the best possible lifestyle

Vienna Spanish Riding School Guided Tour Reviewed by Wendy, 01/14/2018

Good efficient city tour before highlights of Schooenbrunn Palace

Well organised, with free pick up from hotel, efficiently run and with very informative tour of both the city and the palace - a really good way to familiarise yourself with the layout of the city - the strudel and melange package in the Schoenbrunn Palace cafe is also an ideal way to fill the time after the palace tour

All great, very informative guide, great trip

We went to multiple places, the guide was very informative, he told us about the history and the river and the monastery. We had a special guide inside the monastery, so he didn't go in with us. The food wasn't great but it didn't matter to me because i was their for the tour not for the food. In general, i was very pleased with everything else.

Wachau and Danube Valleys 8-Hour Tour from Vienna Reviewed by Violetta, 01/07/2018

Very deep knowledge. Captivating presentation.

I wish it was all in English. Would have preferred to end seated, where discussion could be more focussed.

Wonderful food tour of a beautiful diverse city!

Patrick, our guide, was very knowledgeable of the city and it’s culture. He selected a variety of venues to truly highlight the diversity and multi-culturism of Vienna. It was a joy! I would highly recommend the tour to friends and family!
