Vienna is the national capital, largest city, and one of nine states of Austria. Vienna is Austria’s most populous city, with about 2 million inhabitants (2.6 million within the metropolitan area,nearly one third of the country’s population), and its cultural, economic, and political centre. It is the 6th-largest city by population within city limits in the European Union.

I think this is the dream of all travel lovers to visit Vienna, at least once in a lifetime,but more times it would be even better.At least we hope to return someday. The city has completely conquered us.

The day before, we had visited Bratislava and we were extremely happy to have managed to visit everything we set out in a relatively short time. We left around 5 PM from Bratislava, and after an hour we arrived at our hotel in Vienna –Hotel Caroline. The hotel was very nice and the breakfast was delicious.

That night we stayed quiet at the hotel, to rest, because we knew that the next day, after breakfast, it would be quite tiring.Vienna has so much to offer, but we have in the morning and in the afternoon to visit it, because then we had to go home to Munich and we had to drive 4 hours.

Top hotels we recommend in Vienna:The Harmonie Vienna, BW Premier Collection ,Andaz Vienna Am Belvedere ,Saint SHERMIN bed breakfast & champagne .

We managed to find the best two companies that offer hotels, holiday homes and transportation. These are: Booking.com and Vrbo. We have already tested these companies, we were very satisfied and we warmly recommend them.

VRBO

For this reason, we drew a map with the attractions of the city, which helped us a lot to think exactly where we are going and what we have to do. It was very useful.

After breakfast we went to the city center and the first tourist attraction we saw was Anchor clock.

The Ankeruhr is a large music box at the Helvetia Insurance House at Hohen Markt 10–11 in the old town of Vienna. The anchor clock is considered one of the outstanding works of Art Nouveau and is a popular tourist attraction.

Then we walked the beautiful streets of Vienna until we reached St. Stephen’s Cathedral.Here are some pictures we have taken on the road:

St. Stephen’s Cathedral on Vienna’s Stephansplatz has been a cathedral church since 1365, a cathedral since 1469/1479 and the Metropolitan Church of the Archbishop of Vienna since 1723. The Roman Catholic cathedral, known as Steffl for short by the Viennese, is a symbol of Vienna and is sometimes also referred to as the Austrian national shrine.

Then we headed for the Vienna Plague Column,that is a Holy Trinity column on the Graben in downtown Vienna. It was built after the plague epidemic of 1679 and was consecrated on October 29, 1693. The 21 meter high baroque column is one of the most famous and distinctive sculptural works of art in the city.

From here we went to Hofburg, a place very visited by tourists.

The Hofburg was the residence of the Habsburgs in Vienna from the 13th century until 1918. Since the end of 1946 it has been the official residence of the Austrian Federal President. Most of the Austrian National Library as well as various museums and the Federal Monuments Office are housed in it.

Then we wanted to visit Heldenplatz and on the road we have taken some nice pictures:

Heldenplatz is a historic square in Vienna that is part of the Hofburg grounds. The Federal President resides in the adjacent part of the Hofburg, the Federal Chancellor on Ballhausplatz, which is connected to Heldenplatz.Austrian National Library is located behind us!

Then we headed to the Volksgarten,that is an official park on the Ringstraße in 1. Wiener Gemeindebezirk Innere Stadt.It was great to visit it, because you can see wonderful trees and plants and the park offers you wonderful views of the many tourist attractions around it:

The Karlskirche built in the first half of the 18th century, is a listed building. It is located on the south side of the central Karlsplatz and is one of the most important baroque church buildings north of the Alps and one of the landmarks of Vienna.

Rathausplatz is located in Vienna‘s 1st district, the Inner City. It is named after the Vienna City Hall built here. Due to its size, its design and the architecture of the buildings bordering the square, it is considered to be one of the most important squares in the center of Vienna.

From here, we went back to the car and went to Belvedere, which was simply magnificent. Only when you see these tourist attractions do you really feel immense happiness that you have the opportunity to be there.

The Belvedere Palace is a palace complex built by Johann Lucas von Hildebrandt between 1714 and 1723 for Prince Eugene of Savoy. The Upper Belvedere and the Lower Belvedere form a baroque ensemble with the connecting gardens.

After visiting the wonderful Belvedere, we drove to Schönbrunn.Unfortunately we arrived here quite late and it was very crowded, you could barely take pictures, but we still enjoyed the view and the fact that we got there.

The Schönbrunn Palace, built in its current form in the 18th century as a summer residence for Archduchess Maria Theresa, has been in the 13th district of Vienna, Hietzing, since 1892. Its name goes back to a saying attributed to Emperor Matthias. He is said to have “discovered” an artesian spring here while hunting in 1619 and exclaimed: “What a beautiful well”.

From here, we drove to Votivkirche.The Vienna Votive Church, a Roman Catholic church located next to the Ringstrasse in the Alsergrund district in the immediate vicinity of the main building of the University of Vienna, is one of the most important neo-Gothic sacred buildings in the world.

Our last stop in Vienna was at the Prater.The Vienna Prater is an extensive, approximately 6 km², largely public area in the 2nd district of Vienna, Leopoldstadt, which still today consists largely of floodplains originally shaped by the Danube.

These were the wonders we saw in Vienna. There would be a few more to see, but we failed to reach them, because we had no more time. These are: Vienna State Opera, Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien, Albertina, MuseumsQuartier, Hundertwasserhaus, Natural History Museum Vienna, Parliament, City Park, Catholic Church of St. Peter, Burggarten, Army History Museum, Maria-Theresien-Platz, Café Gloriette.Maybe you will be able to visit them and send us some pictures.
