  • It was not that difficult to go to this place using public transportation. You just need to use the OBB website to get the directions. This is an excellent day trip off the beaten path. An excellent c...  more »
  • The walk (1.1 km) is no challenge, especially as it goes through a shady trail. The arrival is no problem: tram (60) is from Kennedy bridge to the Hermes road and then the bus (55A) up to the Lainzertor. From here we walk as described above. The Villa itself is a gem. Already the panelled staircase gives an idea of what more expensive establishment Emperor Franz Josef wanted to keep his Sisi in Vienna. A room more beautiful than the other, especially Sisi's is very refined bedrooms. And also the outbuildings have been restored beautifully. On the way back you will pass on a deer enclosure, very romantic!

  • Who no longer endures the scorching heat of the city, noise and hustle and bustle of the city centre on the nerves go whom and who lacks green, green, green again, finds on the outskirts of Vienna on 2,600 hectares of the former imperial hunting ground, the Lainzer Tiergarten, hiking, walking, running or just the look in the (good forest) air. Who here also a small curl little imperial culture and history, who visited the so called Hermes Villa, a former hunting lodge built by the Emperor of his wife Elisabeth at the western edge of the vast recreation area. Well, the emperor has not even built it, he commissioned the ring roads architect Carl von Hasenauer, managed the feat to create a gem, even the capricious Empress called her "Castle of dreams" within only four years (1882-1886). The turbulent history of this House is located on the first floor, surrounded by numerous pieces of the Imperial institution, wonderful study. Can more than one hundred years zurückbeamen while strolling through the rooms and determine that the good old days without the modern amenities only in cinema and television was really good. Who would like to add yet a biological culture and enjoyment of art then, finds a lab job, which perfectly quenches thirst and hunger on the ground floor.

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.
