Visit Vienna - Best of Vienna
Vienna has been defined not only as a beautiful city. Rather it has also been defined as the center for 3 C’s – culture, coffee and classical music. Replete with museums, palaces and churches, the city has also proved itself as an ideal example of brilliant architecture. However, Vienna is not only about being ancient and traditional in nature. Rather the city also has a young pulsating side which needs to be explored. Going beyond the first districts of the city will let you see the young, free spirited soul of the city. It is a city where the Old World and the New come together in a lovely amalgam.
If history is your favorite subject, visit the districts dotted with historical buildings like St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Hofburg Palace and so on. If art attracts you, do not miss the famous Museums quartier and the Belvedere Palace to learn about the history and art of Vienna. For music lovers, Rathaus or City Hall is the place you should head off to.
For the bohemians, Vienna offers the region near Danube Canal where you visit a street that is entirely devoted to the carefree street artists. A tour on the street let you understand what street art is all about.
Now, while taking a tour around the city you might start feeling hungry and for that, Vienna’s coffeehouses ‘Kaffeehauses’ are there for you. A cup of hot coffee topped with cream and paired up with confectionary is enough to give you ‘heavenly’ feel. Else fresh food markets like Naschmarkt is there where you get fresh fruits, vegetables and even ready-to-eat authentic cuisines.
As the day comes to an end, take a wine tasting tour in the vineyards of Vienna.
With all this and many more things to do in Vienna, the city is sure to be a tourist hub to be reckoned with. Each one of you should visit Vienna at least once and experience all that it has to offer considering the best time to visit Vienna.
