Vienna is a magnificent and fascinating city full of history and incredible architecture. Once the seat of the Habsburg court and its various empires, the capital city continues to thrive as the political, cultural, and economic center of Austria. Vienna International Airport
serves as the gateway to the region, but there are a number of other airports that may offer a more convenient and less expensive alternative to reaching your destination.
Vienna will be an absolute treat for lovers of culture, history, and architecture. The city is divided into a number of districts, and an excellent public transportation system ensures an easy flow of traffic through the city. If struggling for a place to start exploring, sightseeing tours are aplenty. Any itinerary should include a visit to the breathtaking Belvedere Palace
, Schonbrunn Palace, or really any of the palaces that can be found here. Schonbrunn Zoo will be a unique stop as this is the world’s oldest and only baroque zoo and was built in 1760. Founded in 1572, the Spanish Riding School still practices classic dressage in its purest form, and St. Stephen’s Cathedral
graces the city center as one of the most famous Viennese sights since its construction in 1147. Shopping can be done at one of the many outdoor markets, and there are even shopping tours available. For adventure seekers, the Alps provide a playground for skiing, hiking, and snowboarding.
