About Vienna

Vienna is the capital of Austria and was founded in the Roman era. With such a long history you can find fascinating culture and traditions along with architecture covering many eras. Museums, churches and well-preserved architecture are abundant in all areas of the city, and there are many tours and private guided trips where you can discover some of the stories of Vienna’s past.

Famous names such as Mozart, Beethoven, and Sigmund Freud are mentioned in the city’s history books, to name just a few you will surely recognize. 

Vienna has a high rate of return visitors, and it is not hard to see why it is a favourite European destination for many people. Visitors rave about the amazing cultural events, great coffee, shopping, nightlife, and stunning architecture. There is an excellent public transportation system, so it is an easy city to get around, and the locals are warm and welcoming.

Best Time to Visit

The best time to visit Vienna is April to May or September to October if you like mild weather and smaller crowds. In June, July, and August, summer is a stunning time to visit with roaring temperatures and many days of sunshine, but of course, it gets busy with tourists and locals out enjoying the fine weather, and room rates are at their highest for the year. 

Keep this in mind when you book your flights to Vienna from Toronto on Air Canada or Austrian Airlines. There are many great deals to be found, so keep an eye out for the best flights to and from Vienna.

Where To Stay

Vienna’s neighborhoods are called bezirke, with 23 in total. Usually, the lower the neighborhood number, the closer it is to the city centre. For example, district one is Innere Stadt and it is the most central neighborhood. Districts 2-9 surround Innere Stadt. Districts 3-9 are called The Vorstadt. So you might like to stay in the busy urban zone or prefer a quieter area on the outskirts of the city.

Schlosshotel Römischer Kaiser is a gem because it one of the most traditional hotels in a central location but in a quiet area. Rooms are classical designed and luxurious with baroque architecture dating back to 1684. It only takes eight minutes to walk to St. Stephen’s Cathedral and many other notable landmarks. 

Altstadt Vienna is a charming boutique hotel on the Spittelberg in Vienna’s trendy Boboville district. The rooms are gorgeous and the interiors focus on invoking inspiration through thoughts and conversations about art. 

If modern vibes are more your taste, you will love Hotel Topazz. Eye-catching round windows and hip interiors with an eco-philosophy are all part of the experience. Relax on the rooftop as the sun goes down on another day of sightseeing and discovering what Vienna is all about. 

Things to Do

Vienna is home to the world’s oldest zoo and it is inside the grounds of a palace. Tiergarten Schönbrunn or Vienna Zoo was founded in 1752 and has over 700 species of animals, including some endangered species. Enjoy seeing the ancient buildings around the zoo and giraffes, bears and crocodiles that are well looked after. 

In the MuseumsQuartier district, historic and contemporary buildings showcase artistic works by Egon Schiele, Gustav Klimt and many other renowned artists. A guided tour is recommended to make the most of one of the world’s largest cultural quarters. Restaurants, shops and cafes are ideal places to reflect on the masterpieces you will see.

Take a dinner cruise on the Danube River with live Austrian music and food to entertain you as you float along the scenic waters of Europe’s second-longest river. There is something so romantic and charming about seeing the city illuminated with lights and your evening will be a memorable one.

Vienna has many stunning Imperial palaces, including the Baroque Schönbrunn Palace, which was the summer residence for the Habsburg rulers. Schönbrunn translates to beautiful spring and the interiors are as stunning as the gardens.

At Danube Tower, you can go to the top observation deck for amazing views. It is the tallest structure in Austria at 252 meters high and the 59th tallest tower in the world. Not recommended if you are scared of heights!

Vienna looks beautiful in winter when everything is covered in snow and the Christmas markets that start in mid-November are world-famous with nativity scenes, music, shopping, and an open-air ice skating rink. Santa makes an appearance, too, of course!
