7 Things You Can't Afford To Miss When Visiting Vienna!

Vienna, the sophisticated cultural capital of Austria, artistic and intellectual. Mozart, Beethoven, and Sigmund Freud to name a few iconic figures who resided here.

Where to stay ~ HOT TIP! Stay at the Austria Trend Parkhotel Schönbrunn Wien!

This is the former guesthouse of Emperor Francis Joseph, it's so elegant and beautiful! Staying here will make you feel as if you have stepped back in time, in a super royal style that is!

7 Things you can't afford to miss when visiting Vienna:

Tip: Book your tickets in advance to avoid long lines.

Go see a Mozart & Strauss concert in the iconic and absolutely stunning Palais Palffy: It was built in the 14th century. In all honesty, I'm not a big fan of classical music or opera which is why this was perfect for me and people like me. I still wanted to experience the musical magic that took place here, only in a lighter version if I can call it that. The performances all take place in the original Figaro hall- This is where Mozart gave concerts in 1762 together with his sister, he also performed here in private his opera "The Marriage of Figaro" for the very first time. We saw a performance combining classic pieces, opera, and ballet. The atmosphere and decor are so unique! If you are an opera lover, visit the main opera house, the Staatsoper.

Enjoy a traditional apple strudel & city views on the Ferris wheel, featured in iconic movies including James Bond- 'The Living Daylights'. It was built in 1897 rising to 65m, making the scenery from up here is spectacular!

Visit the Schloss Belvedere museum: This historic building complex consists of two Baroque palaces, Orangery, and the Palace Stables. It's one of the world’s finest Baroque palaces! The grounds are beautifully decorated featuring fountains and Baroque sculptures, with landscaped gardens. Artworks by Klimt, Schiele, and Kokoschka; this place is worth spending a few hours exploring.

Take a river cruise along the Danube river: Admire the longest open street art gallery in Europe; the Danube canal while cruising. Along the way, you'll be able to see over 100 different street art pieces among other things.

Visit the Kunsthistorisches Museum: This was one of the Habsburgs' most dazzling palaces, housing the imperial art collection. The imperial stables have been transformed into the innovative MuseumsQuartier!

Visit the Stephansdom Cathedral and the historic center

Enjoy your visit, and let me know what you think of Vienna!
