Vienna Sightseeing

Vienna is the city of magnificent palaces, castles and cathedrals. Moreover, Vienna sightseeing tours are never complete without admiring the breathtaking natural beauty and being part of the exhilarating experience of attending the opera and theater.


This section on Vienna sightseeing is an introduction to some of the best places to visit in Vienna, and the most favorite tourist destinations in Vienna.


First up in the list of tourist spots in Vienna is the Belvedere Palace. The palace is really two palaces that were constructed for Prince Eugene of Savoy in the Rococo style by J.L. Von Hildebrandt. Today, they are home to some of the finest Austrian paintings. Apart from this art museum, the Belvedere Palace is a popular Vienna tourist spot because of the alpine garden that has been created in its park area. This is Europe's first garden of this kind, and in it flourishes a diverse variety of flora.





While traveling in Vienna, one must not miss out on the Sch÷nbrunn Palace. Once upon a time, this palace served as the summer home of the Habsburg rulers. Today it is a UNESCO world heritage site. A Vienna sightseeing tour of the palace includes a tour of the residence. There is also a Tirolian Garden, a Palm House and a puppet show at this popular Vienna tourist spot.


The Hofburg was originally a medieval castle, but today it houses the National Library, the Imperial Treasury, a glass house, a museum, a collection of musical instruments and weapons, and the Spanish Riding School. The school is independently, a must-see in Vienna. Another event to participate in, in Vienna, is the Sunday Mass at the Hofburg, where the Vienna Boys Choir performs.


Other Viennese architectural delights that a Vienna sightseeing tour would include are the Haas House, Karlskirche and St. Stephen's Cathedral. The Haas House was hugely disputed when it was constructed, but today it is the city's pride. Its glass fašade reflects the magnificent St. Stephen's Cathedral that stands opposite it. Karlskirche is the biggest cathedral north of the Alps that has been designed in Baroque style.


Other hot spots in Vienna are the fascinating Anchor Clock, the Danube Tower that is 352 meters high and that gives you not simply a bird's eye view of the city, but that also the world's highest bungee centre, and the famous Austrian market, Naschmarkt. The Ring Boulevard that circles the city center gives you the chance to see several famous Viennese tourist sights.


If you are wondering where to go in Vienna to have some fun, Prater is the place. This fun fair has rides as well as sports facilities and places to relax.


While sightseeing in Vienna, also visit the oldest zoo in the world and the only one that is Baroque: the Sch÷nbrunn Zoo, and the world-famous Vienna Opera House, where the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra has enthralled people for generations.
