As the former capital of the Austro-Hungarian empire, Vienna entrances tourists with its almost seamless blend between baroque imperial palaces and modern architectural marvels. The grandiose façades of the Hofburg Palace, art, and natural history museums protect some of the finest collections of artifacts in the world, including the jewels of the Hapsburg Monarchy. Once home to Mozart, Strauss and Beethoven, Vienna is still the classical music capital of the world with an astounding number of concert halls and live music venues. For animal lovers, a visit to the Spanish Riding School may get them a glimpse of the famed white Lipizzaner stallions, one of the purest horse breeds on Earth. Kids and adults alike flock to the Prater amusement ... Read more
park and its giant 19th century Riesenrad ferris wheel. Vienna is also home of the world famous “Kaffeehauskultur,” and grand coffee houses featuring baroque to modern decoration dot the city. Tourists can stop by for a unique Viennese coffee or perhaps the famed veal Wiener Schnitzel or chocolate Sacher torte. Restaurant and hotel options are plentiful, ranging from budget to luxury, and a selection of nightlife choices include nightclubs, bars and casinos catering to nearly every scene. Vienna's public transport system blankets the city with a highly efficient network of urban railways, trams, subways and buses.
If you are heading to Vienna to experience its renowned music scene, try to plan your trip for spring, when the weather breaches the “tolerable” range, with temperatures ranging from 45°-70°F (7°-21°C), and the city flings itself headlong into festival season. Fall is a great second choice, with similar weather and plenty of operas and concerts to keep you satisfied. Much of the city’s cultural life goes into hibernation during the freezing temperatures of winter, but the Christmas season is festive and draws many visitors. Summer, similarly, doesn’t have as much on the calendar, but the warmer temperatures, averaging about 78°F (25.5°C), are perfect for an evening out on the Danube - when it’s not raining.

Vienna is a beautiful city to visit. I loved since my first trip there, and even if it is the foreign city in which I spent the longest time, I still want to get back. The city was included among top three cities to live in 2015. From beautiful buildings to splendid museums and attractions for children and adults, this is a not to miss capital of Europe. Great during the spring, beautiful during the summer and autumn and incredibly festive in winter with one of the most famous Christmas fairs, not to mention the amazing New Year’s concert, Vienna has something special for each visitor. Yes, it is a city I cherish.

Holocaust Memorial in the Jewish quarter near the city center. So many lives lost so brutally. A very sad reminder.

One of the most beautiful cities in all of Europe. With its stately buildings, tasty pastries, and rich history, Vienna is worth more than a stop on your Danube river cruise. Try to come in December when you can experience the lovely Christmas markets and drink in the atmosphere as well as the mulled wine.
