Vienna is a typical European city, like the great European cities like Paris, Rome, London, Barcelona or Milan but unlike them, is very compact and easy to visit. Let us manage those things:

  • Stephansdom: St Stephen’s Cathedral, major tourist attraction, has survived many wars and became the Vienna’s symbol of freedom.
  • Schonbrunn Palace of Versailles: It should have been the Austrian Empire, but in 1695 when Fischer von Erlach designed the palace, its construction costs were too high.
  • Wiener Staatsoper: Vienna State Opera is one of the most important works in the world, where they presented a variety of opera and ballet performances at the highest artistic level. Opera Vienna’s first district is situated at the southern end of Kartneestrasse.
  • Belvedere Palace: It is located in the midst of a splendid park. The palace was built for Prince Eugene of Savoy, by JL von Hildebrandt, a well-known architect of the Baroque period.
  • Kunsthistorisches Museum: One of the important sights of Vienna Art History Museum, housed in a building on the Boulevard Ring, which resembles a palace is one of the most important museums of art and decorative art in the world.
  • Hofburg Imperial Palace: For over 600 years, the Hofburg was the residence of the Austrian sovereigns. Over time, it was developed until reaching one of the most important centers of European history.
  • Mariahilferstrasse: Hilfe Maria is in the 6th District of Vienna and close to downtown. It is a very populated area with many residential buildings. Besides technological University of Vienna, you can find Maria Hilfe Franz Schubert Conservatory.
  • Donau Turm: Danube Tower is the 62-century tower as tall in the world. It was built in 1964 with a height of 252 meters but the observation deck is 150 meters. The tower has a diameter of 12 meters and eight meters deep foundation with a diameter of 31 meters.
  • Karlskirche: Or Church of Saint Karl is one of the most beautiful and interesting buildings. By order of the king of this baroque the building was designed especially to represent the Habsburg Empire.
  • Burgtheater: National Theater in Vienna was built between 1874 and 1878 by architects Gottfried Semper and Karl Hasenauer. It is one of the most famous theaters in the German-speaking world.
