Vienna, Austria is a European city that should be in your “travel wish list” if it isn’t already. I loved this city, it is brimming with culture and arts. It is stunning to look at and it has plenty to explore and experience.
A few of the many places to visit in beautiful Vienna:
This palace with vast gardens, labyrinths, and fountains house the history of the Habsburg monarchs.
One of my personal favorite places; this apartment building was built after the idea and concept of Austrian artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser.
Haus der Musik
The Haus der Musik (House of Music) in Vienna opened in 2000, and is the first museum of sound and music in Austria. I enjoyed this place immensely. The building is full of exhibitions teaching about the world of music from the earliest human use to present day. It has several interactive and high-tec presentations. I especially enjoyed the famous composer rooms as I am a classical music fan.
Attend A Live Music Orchestra
If you enjoy classical music, you mustn’t skip this activity if you are in Vienna. There are countless places and opportunities to do this.
The Albertina Museum
The Albertina is a museum in the Innere Stadt (First District) of Vienna, Austria. It houses one of the largest and most important print rooms in the world with approximately 65,000 drawings and approximately 1 million old master prints, as well as more modern graphic works, photographs and architectural drawings.
And there is a lot more to do!…
The Wurstelprater amusement park, often simply called “Prater” is a large public park in Vienna’s 2nd district.
Have you been to Vienna? Did you have any favorite spots I didn’t mention?
