Vienna, the capital of Austria, is a beautiful city, but it is mainly underrated compared to cities like London or Paris.
Vienna is a quieter and less extravagant city than New York or London and certainly less highlighted in the big fashion and movie magazines. Still, Vienna has a unique artistic and architectural wealth worldwide.
The magnificent Schönbrunn Palace which is a large palace which was for a long time the residence of the Austrian emperor and Sissi the empress. This superb palace is well worth a visit, not only for the beauty of its 1441 rooms but also for its beautiful gardens and the adjoining zoo. Schönbrunn Palace is a famous landmark in Vienna.
Vienna also has the Vienna Cathedral. It is the most striking building in the city. The large cathedral is called Stephansdom and dominates the historic center. The cathedral was once a Romanesque church that burned down. The largest tower is about 140 meters high and can be visited. It takes some time, but once at the top, the tower offers a magnificent view of the city. The interior of the cathedral is also recommended! You will see historic tombs and the oldest painting in the West, which dates back to the 14ᵉ century.
You cannot come to Vienna and not visit the Hofburg residence, a complex of buildings. It housed the rooms of the emperor. In winter, the emperor stayed in Hofburg, but in summer, the emperor lived in Schönbrunn Palace. In addition to the imperial rooms, you will also find the Habsburg treasury. Several libraries, an equestrian center and the castle chapel houses a famous Austrian choir.
The heart of Vienna is the opera. Vienna is known for its great composers who, in the past, created classical music. Vienna is home to several large concert halls. The Vienna State Opera is one of the best opera houses in the world and is beautifully decorated with impressive balconies.
