If c ?? a city? where you feel the presence of an imperial past, well? this? just Vienna, now I'll tell you how to get to Vienna and what to do in three days.

How to reach us

Can you? arrive by train or, as I did, on an Austrian flight. Once you arrive at the airport, I recommend getting the Vienna Card immediately, you can get it at the airport or in the city. This card offers unlimited access to Viennese public transport and offers a variety of discounts on museum entrance tickets. C ?? from 24, 48 or 72 hours and certainly allows a nice saving. If you decide to do it here you will find all the information.
IS? you must write the day you start using it and stamp it only the first time.
From the airport? very convenient to reach the center of Vienna. You have two options to take the S7, the journey takes 25 minutes and the ticket costs 2.20 per person (this route is not included in the Vienna Card because it exceeds the included mileage; you will have to buy a ticket in the marked machines? BB). Are there several stops one of these? Wien Mitte / Landstrasse. Otherwise you can use a pi? fast but a little? pi? expensive what? the CAT train, makes a direct route that always arrives at Wien Mitte / Landstrasse, takes 15 minutes and costs 19? a / r. At the airport you can buy tickets in the green automatic machines or go to the special counter that c? in the baggage claim area.

Where to eat and where to sleep in Vienna

Finally I conclude by giving you the name of two restaurants where I ate in the town hall area that were excellent: Fromme Helene who makes a divine goulash and Melker Sriftkeller, where I tasted the Wiener Schnitzel in a beautiful underground cellar. For lunch instead, I recommend taking advantage of the bakeries, which for a few euros will make you enjoy excellent sandwiches and desserts.

I slept in the town hall area, the Austria Trend Rathauspark hotel? very convenient with the subways and in a quiet area of ​​the city.

1 day

Let's see now what c? to visit in Vienna. I begin to tell you that for the Sch? Nbrunn castle it is necessary to foresee a full day and, since I queued for an hour for tickets, I recommend booking them in time from the site.
Therefore, on the first day, due to the fact that you will probably only have half a day available, I recommend starting from the historic center, perhaps starting with the Votivkirche, with its splendid decorated windows and then the town hall (Rathaus) and the Cathedral of Santo Stefano (Stephansdom). Can you? climb the bell tower of the cathedral and enjoy a beautiful view from above. The roof of the cathedral? very colorful, really beautiful.
Right next to the cathedral, in one of the side streets, head towards the Graben, the ancient moat that today? one of the main arteries of the city, here you will see the Pests? ule, the monument column dedicated to the defeat of the great plague in the city.
At this point, if you are not too tired you could try to go to the Belvedere, the castle of Prince Eugene of Savoy which is located south of the center. If you don't have much time, you could limit yourself to visiting the Upper Belvedere, where? exposed the kiss of Klimt. Not far from here. then see another particular building, the Majolikahaus, which has the characteristic of having a majolica ceramic façade.
Can you? then go to the Imperial Palace (Hofburg). Here lived the Habsburgs and here also found some museums.
A few steps from here you can't miss going to eat a slice of Sachertorte in the Hotel Sacher, where the original Sacher is served, you will see a very long queue but? rather smooth. The price for a piece of cake? about 7 euros for what? also includes a glass of water. Even if a little? dear do you want to add the charm of eating a slice of cake in the original Sacher hotel?

2 day

The next day, leave it entirely for the visit to Sch? Nbrunn castle, remembering, as mentioned above, to book the entrance. The palace was born as a summer hunting lodge of the Habsburgs. You can easily get there by subway. There are various types of tickets, I took the Classic pass which allows the visit of 40 rooms of the castle, the zoo, the labyrinth and the gardens. It is then necessary to walk to the Gloriette hill, from which you will see? a beautiful view of the castle and Vienna from above. The entrance to the Gloriette? included in this classic pass.
Undoubtedly this castle? full of charm and takes a step back in time!

3 day

The last day I recommend dedicating it to the view of the Prater park, where you will also find a lot of funfair style attractions, including the beautiful Ferris wheel, and the Danube, by going to the Donauinsel stop you will see the lighthouse and the riverside.
Along the Prater park and one of the Danube canals, you will reach the Hundertwasserhaus in about 20 minutes.
It is a very colorful (inhabited) house created by the architect Hundertwasser as a public housing building, between the colors and the unevenness of the asphalt? really special.
For who has more? time c ?? an entire district dedicated to museums, the MuseumsQuartier. C ?? really everything: the mumok, dedicated to modern art. The Leopold, dedicated to Klimt and Schiele, then there are the architecture museum and the Kunsthalle, a center of contemporary art, and also a museum for children, the ZOOM.
The Albertina museum should not be forgotten.
Let's not forget the markets either, such as Naschmarkt or the Karmelitanviertel, one of the most popular places. indicated to eat something. Here you can find more information about the Viennese markets.
