  • Globe Museum in Wien in Museum Quartier was the surprise of the Austrian capital. The tourists who visit the city for a short time usually ignore this museum and choose for the most gamous ones howeve...  more »
  • one of the few Viennese attractions at reasonable prices (4 euros adults) for a truly original collection well done the multimedia stations while lacking captions on Windows the ticket can combine with that of the Museum esperanto wardrobe available

  • I'm fascinated by globes, and was surprised but excited to hear of this museum. It seemed popular too, with a number of people visiting at the same time, so clearly not an unknown attraction in Vienna...  more »

  • Wow- this place is magical. The building itself, the architecture and art are incredible alone. The State room at the top of the building really transports you back to...well actually that’s tough to say because it contains over 650 years of history. The exhibits are exquisite and there is something for everyone: music, cartography, ecology, religion, history. The frescoes on the ceiling are breathtaking and there is an informational and interactive exhibit to tell you all about it. Go to this library. 8€ to get in.
  • Beautiful building, I’ve never seen a library like this before - it’s a work of art. Relatively cheap entry fee. Interesting exhibit on Freemasons, including original artifacts. The library even includes a hidden room. Unfortunately everything is an exhibition, so you’re not able to see the books or enter some areas (like the hidden room).
  • Absolutely stunning library with modern equipment, superkind staff which are very helpful, and an encouraging atmosphere which promotes reading. If you live in Vienna, make it parts of your weekly schedule. Very astonishing and modern!
  • O.M.G. One of my highlights in Vienna. Incredibly beautiful old library, stunning frescoes, giant old globes and regularly changing special exhibitions. I just need a couch and a good book...
  • Awe-inspiring. The state hall and library is some of the most amazing places in the city. With so much history you can find your self memorized for around an hour. Steeped in history you learn a lot about the freemasons and history of the city. I would recommend a visit.

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.
