Where to stay

Because the city is so easy to navigate, you don’t need to worry about being too far away from the sights. There is a huge range of accommodation available for rent, from cute bed and breakfasts through to self-catering apartments. Innere Stadt offers accommodation in the centre of Viennese life and prides itself as home of the cathedral, Vienna State Opera House and Hofburg Palace. Leopoldstadt is home to Prater Park, where there is an amusement park, tree-lined walking paths and a large stadium. Anyone staying in Landstrasse will be close to Stadtpark, Schwarzenberg Palace and Belvedere Palace. The small neighbourhood of Wieden offers accommodation near the Historical Museum of the City of Vienna and Kärnerstrasse, the main boulevard of the city centre. Margareten is a residential area a bit further from the city.

Things to do

The River Danube is at the heart of the city. It is the inspiration for many famous classical music pieces and the banks are lined with walking and biking paths, cafes and green open spaces. The Naschmarkt is worth a look, particularly on Saturdays when the 1.5km market comes alive with street food, market traders and small restaurants. Prater Park is a great place to get away from the busy city streets – there are small lakes and plenty of green spaces as well a large Ferris wheel. No trip to Austria’s capital would be complete without seeing a selection of the city’s palaces. Hofburg is one of the grandest palaces and is a good example of Habsburg-era design at its most lavish. Schönbrunn Palace is a UNESCO world heritage site and its sculpted gardens are worth seeing and are free to enjoy.

Eating and Drinking

There are many cafés in Vienna, so many that you’ll find it hard to decide where to go. One top tip is Café Drechsler, a traditional café which faithfully recreates the style of an old Viennese coffee house. Any cafe will serve a generous helping of tasty Apfelstrudel. A hearty plate of schnitzel is a must and is Vienna’s iconic dish. Again, most of the city’s restaurants will have this on the menu, but it is recommended heading to Restaurant Leupold to try the dish. Visitors can relax after each meal with a flavoursome glass of wine, or head to one of the trendy wine bars on offer. It won’t be hard to find one as Vienna is the only metropolis in the world that grows a large volume wine within the city limits. In fact, 700 hectares of vineyards shape Vienna’s cityscape and lifestyle.

Getting Around

Flughafen Wien (Vienna Airport) is situated 18 km to the southeast of the city centre. The best way to travel from here into the city is with the city airport train (CAT). Trains depart every 30 minutes and the journey takes approximately 16 minutes. Bratislava Airport is located 60 km away and there are several bus and train services operating between the two. We recommend you use Vienna’s extensive and reliable public transport system to get around the city centre. The Vienna Card is a ticket designed for visitors to the city. For less than €20, you can get free access to public transport and significant discounts at Vienna’s tourist attractions. Vienna’s public transport system runs until midnight and you'll find that most apartments and accommodation for rent are located close to public transport connections.
