Vienna Favorite Tips by Mariajoy
Vienna General: 611 reviews and 766 photos
Favorite thing: These are very cute and have little messages on the side like:
"Ich fuehl mich so leer!" - I feel so empty!
How could anyone resist a little plea like that ?? go and buy ten postcards at least and fill up that little yellow box - oh and by the way - the slot is on the side of the box!
Favorite thing: As I spent most of Saturday visiting galleries I didn't get too much time for shopping - but at least if I go back again I know where to shop! On Sunday we were in Mariahilfe Strasse which seemed to be full of lovely boutiques and great places to shop, but of course nothing was open except for restaurants and internet cafes.
Favorite thing: Open 9am-5.30 Thurs-Mon
9am-9pm Weds. Disabled access.
Opened in 1889 to house Emporer Franz Stephans 1748 collection of bits and bobs - there are now more than 20 MILLION!!! exhibits! Maybe I should make this a *Must See for my next trip* - or maybe not ;-)
Lovely building though.
Favorite thing: Modern Art museum - never got to visit this place as time was limited and I really wanted to see the Egon Schiele exhibition at the neighbouring Leopold Museum.
8E for Adults and
2E for children
U-Bahn U2 - Museum Quarter or
U3 - Volkstheatre
Fondest memory: These green blocks in the central area, surrounded by the museums are used for sunbathing - and very comfy they are too!! When I stood on one I expected it to be concrete, but they are in fact hollow and probably quite light and easy to move around!
Favorite thing: The interior of the cathedral was beautiful, particularly these medieval stained glass windows. At the back are 5 other windows telling stories from the bible about saints, prophets and Jesus.
Fondest memory: I would love to come back at a quieter time of year and have a better look round without the crowds!
Favorite thing: Built in 1713-1725, this beautiful yellow-ochre coloured baroque building dominates the whole of the museum quarter area.
