    Easily accessible by bus from U-Bahn Heiligenstadt, or by bike and on foot if you are younger than I am (88). Splendid view of the city and the river from vantage points. Expensive cafés and cheap sau...  more »

    Look great! Climb directly on the pad can be both by car (free parking), and bus 38 a. In the morning on weekdays, little people. The Café opens at 11.00.

    Stunning views of Vienna and beyond. Hard to capture on film though. Well worth a drive up to Vienna Woods to explore. Very touristy place.  more »

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.
