    Not sure why, but this was always one of the first impressions of Vienna for me. Probably because, apart from being dominant by itself, this gate has such a potent surrounding which makes the whole pi...  more »

    These large stone built gates were first erected and then opened in 1824 on the site of older fortifications which Napoleon's army believed were now obsolete. They separate the Burgring road from the ...  more »

    It is a great arch which have to cross before you get to the national library or the Hofburg Palace. It is a place full of history

    Like many European cities, a triumphant gate to march through is not uncommon. There has always been a desire for such arches, from Romans, to Napoleon's Arc de Triomphe in Paris and the BrandenburgerTor. The Äußeres Burgtor is the Habsburg's. Built into the former city wall which has now become the Ringstrasse, the gate commentates the victorious battle against Napoleon.

Where to stay in Vienna

As a former imperial capital, Vienna is full of lavish hotels reminiscent of the city’s royal past. If you’re traveling on a budget, it’s not hard to find hotels for a more affordable price. Consider staying in the Innere Stadt, or First District, if you only have a short time in town, as you’ll be within easy walking distance to many of the city’s main tourist attractions. Outside of the central core, Leopoldstadt, or Second District, lines the Danube and offers peaceful walks through tree-lined paths. For shopaholics, Mariahilf, or Sixth District, is a central neighborhood with busy shopping streets and lively markets.
