The 10 Most Beautiful Places to Visit in Vienna, Austria

Folks, welcome to a brand new blog in the capital of Austria, Vienna. A charming and cultural city with magnificent Baroque buildings, elegant gardens, and stunning 19th and 20th century art. They call it the city of music with a cozy coffee house culture. This is going to be a good one, so let’s look at 10 beautiful places to visit in Vienna.

1- VIENNA-

Now the first place you should see is the center of Vienna. Because it’s an attraction all on its own, so if that sounds a little bit boring, believe me, it’s not. Vienna is a historical city, and despite the vast number of bombs that fell in World War II. The historical center remains largely as it once was. So let your feet take you along the pedestrianized streets and enjoy your surroundings. Just imagine a UNESCO world heritage site that stretches across three square kilometers, which is Vienna City Center. In fact, the old town just brims with history, palaces, classical music venues, coffee houses, and, of course, beautiful buildings. It’s just a stunning city.

2: THE HOFBURG- (Visit in Vienna)

This was the former principal Imperial Palace of the Hofburg Dynasty, and it’s located in the center of Vienna. Built in the 13th century and expanded several times after. It also served as the Imperial winter residence. So when you do visit, its main attractions are the Imperial Apartments. Where you can explore the private and official chambers of both the emperor and Empress. The CC Museum is an insight into the life of the often misunderstood Monarch, and lastly. You can see the silver collection. Apart from that, both the outside and inside of the palace are extremely impressive, especially the graceful archways and the gorgeous courtyards.

3-MUSEUMS QUARTIER-

This area opened in 2001, but it’s also a place to relax. The site was once housed by the Habsburg Stables. Which were built in the early 18th century and used to care for hundreds of animals. So the good thing is now you don’t get to smell a pile. The main attractions if you do visit this area are the Leopold Museum. Which is famous for the Sheila collection, which could be something interesting. You have the MOOC, which is the Museum of Modern Art, and you have the Consala. So you get a bit of modern and contemporary. So even if you don’t like museums, it’s still quite a fun and vibrant place to visit.

4- NATURHISTORICHES MUSEUM- (Visit in Vienna)

Now, just five minutes away, you have both the art and the history museums, which are located in a spectacular building with sweeping staircases and huge rooms. It’s home to various types of art from around the world, but you’ll also see wonderful paintings on the ceilings, especially the dome, so don’t forget to look up. Then you come across the natural history museum, which has a collection of precious stones, minerals, fossils, skeletons of animals, and everything else, but even for children there’s a digital planetarium, so that’s a great day out with the family.

5- SCHONBRUNN PALACE-

This is a colossal structure and complex with over a thousand rooms. it was home to the hofburgs for many years and many Emperors were born here as well you can explore the different rooms in a guided tour which I do recommend just to get more of the history there’s plenty to see at the pallets itself you have the zoo the Imperial Carriage Museum and of course the gloriet and those are just some of the things that you can’t miss so if you do visit Schoenberg Palace. Y

ou should check out the Palm House which is in the Palace Park and it’s the largest of its kind on the European continent it houses dozens of Mediterranean tropical and subtropical plants so at the time of this video the ticket costs roughly 7 euros and the good thing is there are lots of seats and benches where you can sit down and enjoy the atmosphere immersed in Tropical Greenery.

6- Stephen’s Cathedral- (Visit in Vienna)

Now the cathedral is the symbol of Vienna and also the very center of the city. At 136 meters in height, it’s the tallest church in Austria. It’s also 107 meters long, but the tallest of its towers is the South Tower at 136 meters. But forget all these statistics. There’s a gigantic view across Vienna if you’re able to get up the 343 steps in the tower room. The steps are very narrow, as you get to see people walking downwards as you head up to the top. Nice views, but you don’t get to walk outside just to look out of the windows. As I mentioned earlier, I highly recommend you take the guided tour so you can see all of the cathedral with the audio guide and the catacombs as well.

7-BELVEDERE PALACE-

This palace is a gigantic palatial complex that used to be the summer residence of Austrian princes back in the 1600s, so it’s a museum that’s split into an upper and lower Belvedere, and the two palaces feature some amazing architecture, especially the green Dome semi-towers. When you do visit, you will see a collection of artwork-decorated staterooms, all surrounded by beautiful gardens. The upper Belvedere has the largest collection of paintings, but if you’re looking for an in-depth experience of the Belvedere, the best way is to get a private tour.

8-HUNDERTWASSER MUSEUM- (Visit in Vienna)

This unique museum is situated near the London Vassar house; I think people actually live there, and it’s devoted to one of Austria’s most important artists feelings. Reich from the Plaza is a very creative artist. Along three different floors, the museum displays his work, including his kind of Teletubby-style housing project and the changing exhibition on the third floor. The reason why I highlight this particular place is because it’s one of Vienna’s architectural highlights and would definitely catch your attention. The tickets are roughly around 11 euros, and I think it’s well worth it.

9: VIENNA COFFEE HOUSES-

Now this is going to be my favorite on this list. Because no visit to Vienna would be complete without enjoying its local coffee scene. You see, Vienna is a world-famous coffee city. There’s something to be said about the fact that there’s a collection of traditional Viennese coffee houses. That have survived for over a hundred years. I will personally make sure that you are removed from the city. There’s a famous quote that says that without coffee houses, there is no Vienna. Without Vienna, there are no coffee houses, and this is so true. The city’s soul has lived and been brought to life in these. How can I put it, holy places that serve coffee for many many years. So my advice to you is to go out there, find a wonderful cafe, even Cafe Central, sit down, relax, and just really enjoy the environment.

10- BRATISLAVA- (Visit in Vienna)

Now I know this is not in Austria. But if you fly to Vienna, what better way to see two cities in two different countries in one trip than to travel from Vienna to Bratislava in just over an hour on the train. You can even be there by nine, spend the whole day in the old town. Even see the British lava castle, and then be back home in Vienna in the evening.

So that’s just a taste of Vienna. I will be making another blog showing all the different types of places. That you can visit and a couple of hidden gems as well.
