  • There are almost all art and culture vultures looking for. Modern to classic. Abstract up to "normal". Not so liked my children. What more for adults.

  • Are several museums with a square well cool in the middle where happen several cultural attractions. I didn't get into any of the museums for lack of time but the area is super nice with super cool banks and a coffee shop/Café. Still has public toilet which is rare in this area of the Hofburg.

  • This museum you surprising exhibitions with since they are great. For those who like good deeds this is all which have more quantity and quality. Just to see the pictures you can see that it has so much more than what you expect from Picasso, kandinsky, klimt, van Gogh, Shiele, Monet... With fewer people than the belvedere (where is the Kiss by klimt) and more quality artists. If you like the painting is incredible!

  • This place will always be one of my all-time favorites. Whenever I go there, I feel energized, cosmopolitan and historically enlightened. There are a bunch of museums, from classic paintings to modern sculptures and countless of restaurants and bars. It never gets boring. People from all over the world make this place one of the most crowded in Vienna.
  • Always nice to visit, many events, a lot of open areas, museums etc. my personal favourite is Leopold's but depending on the exhibition MUMOK could be nice to. Some nice "modern" cafes to eat and have a drink, but nothing extraordinary as it comes to restaurants.
  • A meeting point in the city. nice bars and plenty of space to chill with your friends. Most of the young people meets there when the weather is good and the atmosphere is great during the christmas time
  • Another breathtaking area of Vienna with a multitude of amazing, best-in-class museums. Lots of places to get food and drink nearby, too! It would be too easy to spend a whole day here.
  • An absolute beautiful and memorable place to visit. Surrounded by museums and well trimmed hedges. Whether you tour the museums, or just lay in the grass and watch the clouds roll by, it's all good here :-) ∆

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.
