Vienna is the capital, largest city, and one of nine provinces of Austria. It is also the largest of all cities on the Danube River.
Austria’s capital offers a blend of old and new, imperial and art nouveau buildings meet modern architecture, art, festivals, and the famous Viennese cuisine.
The city owes its beauty and great development to the Habsburg monarchy that ruled over for many centuries.
Start your tour from the heart of the city, with the Gothic St. Stephen's Cathedral and continue to the three large palace complexes: Hofburg (seat of the Habsburgs for centuries), Schönbrunn (summer palace of the Habsburgs with a landscaped park) and Belvedere (two Baroque palaces).
A stroll along Ringstrasse will take you to the Vienna State Opera, the Museum of Art History, the Museum of Natural History, the Parliament, the Burgtheater, and the City Hall.
Don’t miss the historic Prater amusement park that houses the Giant Ferris Wheel built in 1879, but also one of the highest chain carousel (117 meters), the oldest wood slide in the world, and the roller coaster with 180 degree turns.
