"Vienna and its never-ending history" Vienna by Fam.Rauca

Vienna Travel Guide: 7,778 reviews and 20,200 photos

Vienna is a city of the past, present and future

Vienna is, for many visitors and tourists, a very important city.
Visiting Vienna is a pleasure, but living here is a real privilege.
The city has 1,600,000 inhabitants, on a surface of 415 sq km.
The official language in Vienna,
just like in the unmitigated Austria, is German.
Every time when I go to the city, I am exactly as enthusiastic and curious,
as 18 years ago, when we came here.
Here you can go for a walk in the middle of the night
and be as fearless as if you would take a walk in the middle of the day.
Vienna is: history and music, poem and nature, modernism and tradition, silence and civilization

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Splendid edifices, magnificent palaces, and imposing churches spanning the centuries all make Vienna a wonderful city to visit, oozing both charm and atmosphere

    Fascinating travel page of your home city. It certainly brings back fond memories of our trip to Vienna last Christmas. Schönbrunn, Hundertwasser House, Opera House and Hofburg were our favourite attractions. We hope to revisit Vienna one day. ~ho & pang

    You live in one of the most elegant and dignified cities of all Europe. It has such history and fame of the past to present, and operas all over town. We hope to visit again some time, even after 4 visits of the past.

    Mariahilfer Street is a good place for a middle-class tourist, like Oxford Street in London or Yonge Street in Toronto. But the real elegant shopping street in Vienna is Kärntner Street, between Stephanplatz and Karlsplatz.
