Vienna in winter

Last Chistmas we were in Vienna and it was some sight to see with all the light everywhere in the pedestrian section of the center.
There were "glud wine" and sausage stands were you could warm yourself up.
It was not to cold there to my" Canadian standard" but at times the wind would be chilly.
There are plenty of "Chistmas Markets all over the best ones we seen were at "Schonnbrunn palace" and at the" Maria Terrisa plaza" also the is a big Market at the "Rathaus".
The concerts are not to be missed there, but do your homework and you will see a good concert for a reasonable price. The Golden Hall" is very good for around 80 euro or you could check out some of the many churches that will give concerts for just your donation,just show up early and enjoy the music.
We found that during the winter there are more people than during the summer months visiting the museums and concerts than in the summer so book in advance.

Vienna in summer

We just returned from there in August and it was awesome there at this time of the year. Be sure to visit Schonnbrunn Palace and the gardens behind the palace and also the ZOO.
The Belvedere Palace is also not to be missed with it,s extensive art collection, and gardens.
It is recomended to buy the Vienna pass and you will recieve discounts on enty fees and your transit is unlimited.
