"Vienna - suggestions" St. Peter Church Tip by MichaelFalk1969

St. Peter Church, Vienna: 37 reviews and 87 photos

  Ringstrasse view

To fully take in all the sights without a rush, one would need a week here at least. Wien cannot be appreciated in a daytrip in my opinion. Among the most interesting sights (the list is not complete by far) are

- the Schönbrunn Palace (including the historic zoo)
- the Belvedere Palace (including the art collections)
- the Hofburg (Imperial Palace, with several museums)
- the Ringstrasse (with many major sights along this boulevard, i.e. Parliament, Burgtheater)
- the Museum of Fine Arts (Kunsthistorisches Museum)
- the Stephansdom (cathedral)
- churches: Karlskirche, St. Michael, Dominikanerkirche, Jesuitenkirche, Peterskirche
- at least one Opera or Ballet performance
- a visit to a typical Kaffeehaus (Cafe Sperl for example)
- Hundertwasser House
- Secession Building (art noveau)
- the Prater theme park
