Best Places To Visit In Vienna

Posted by SD Rana on July 15th, 2019

Vienna continues to attract visitors with its many great historic sights, fabled collections of art, glittering palaces, and exceptional musical heritage that’s still carried on in concert halls and one of the world’s great opera houses.

Capital of the Republic of Austria and one of Europe’s most visited cities, Vienna owes much of its charm and rich history to its splendid location on the banks of the Danube River. For centuries the gateway between West and East Europe, it was the natural nucleus of the once sprawling Habsburg Empire, and to this day remains Austria’s most important commercial and cultural hub.

  • See Vienna from St. Stephen’s Cathedral: Also known as Stephansdom, this is a striking Romanesque-Gothic cathedral with a colourful roof that you need to admire up close. Ride the elevator to the top for stunning views of Vienna. The whole structure was rebuilt after World War II. Highlights include climbing the 343 steps to the Steffl’s Watch Room for the spectacular views, and the North Tower, home to the massive Pummerin Bell.
  • Visit The Hofburg Palace: Back when Austria had an empire, the ornate Hofburg Palace was its beating heart. Today it’s the official residence of the country’s president, as well as being home to many of Vienna’s top museums and galleries. Hofburg Palace was built in the 13th century and expanded many times over. Tickets give you access to the Sisi Museum, the Imperial Apartments and the Silver Collection.
  • Get Wowed By The Beauty Of Belvedere Palace: Among Vienna’s most popular attractions, Belvedere Palace is really a splendid tourist attraction in Vienna. The Upper Palace include the Ground Floor Hall, with its statues, and the Ceremonial Staircase, with its rich stucco relief and frescoes. Also worth seeing is the Marble Hall, a stunning two-story hall with numerous period sculptures, paintings, and ceiling frescoes. The Lower Palace also boasts a Marble Hall, this one noted for its oval plaster medallions and rich ceiling fresco, as well as a Marble Gallery built to house a collection of historic statues.
