Vienna (population: 1.8 million) is full of history, an easygoing lifestyle, old world adventures, ancient alleyways, exciting museums and a lively nightlife. It makes you fall in love with you the moment you lay your eyes on it, but your bond and affection for the city keeps increasing with every moment you spend in it. Vienna is also known to be a city that really loves its music. Musicians like Mozart, Schubert and Beethoven became famous through venues such as the Musikverein and Staatsoper, and Bach and Handel is still played in the city’s churches. A trip to the Haus der Musik also introduces you to a delightful collection of ancient musical instruments that let you dive deeper into the world of music.
It is difficult to imagine a city that is more inviting and hospitable than Vienna. You have the best of everything here. From groovy beislns to traditional cafes, just about every experience is special. Start your adventures with trips to the Schonbrunn Palace and the Hofburg Palace, ranked among the most beautiful palaces of Europe. Tiergarten Schonbrunn, the oldest zoo in the world, also warrants a visit while in the city. Culture vultures can spend days in the MuseumQuartier, one of the largest cultural playgrounds on the planet. And before you call it a day, spend the evening in Innere Stadt, a historic city center that dates all the way back to the Roman era.
