What to Do in Vienna
Vienna – is not only the capital of Austria but is also considered Europe’s capital of music. Important composers of the Viennese classical music such as Joseph Haydn, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Ludwig van Beethoven felt comfortable in the magnificent and historic buildings located in the streets of Vienna. More reasons to visit the multifaceted city are the many museums and public squares rich in history. Castle Schönbrunn, summer residence of Empress Sissy, the Stephan dome, the Viennese Prater or the zoo Schönbrunn belong to the most important sights of the city. And lovers of regional and culinary specialties will also find lots of things to indulge in when savouring a piece of Sacher cake and a genuine Viennese Schnitzel. Apart from the cosy flair of a major city a hiking trip to the Austrian Alps is also highly recommended.
