Lasting Beauty of Vienna
Vienna is a strikingly beautiful city, By merely glancing at the many palaces and stately homes around the town it is clear that the city’s imperial history has been profoundly influential in its development. It is no surprise that Vienna has been voted the best city in the world to live in and this is due in no small part to the atmospheric coffee houses and distinguished culinary history that can be experienced in the market places and eateries around town.
Your tour will begin at the Ringstrasse; a 5.3km boulevard commissioned by Emperor Franz Joseph, and home to some of Austria’s most important sites. The Vienna Rathaus, a neo-Gothic city hall built in 1883, is one of the best. The Hofburg Imperial Palace is another, and was the home of the Habsburg dynasty between the 13th to the 20th Century.
You will visit the Hundertwasserhaus - a group of houses designed by Hundertwasser a famous Austrian artist - designed with his typical vividly colourful, winding style. Experience St Stephen’s cathedral, regarded as a Gothic gem and Peterskirche, a baroque church that occupies the oldest Christian site in Vienna. You will also stop at the enigmatic Jewish quarter - a lasting monument to the once thriving community that was brutally repressed during WW2. Here you will also learn about Sigmund Freud’s life and work at his very own house that is now a museum. Along the way you will have the chance to visit some of Vienna's famous coffeehouses, which since they were initially opened by an Armenian spy in the the 17th century, have been a vital part of the city's legacy.
Your trip to Vienna would not be complete without paying a visit to the fabulously baroque Belvedere Palace as well as the stunning Schonbrunn Palace.
