Austria’s capital Vienna offers an insight into its mesmerizing architecture with imperial buildings, museums, and the heart of the city itself. The city will definitely capture every traveler’s heart.

Coming from a person who’s been to Vienna multiple times, you will definitely not regret visiting Vienna. I have always enjoyed coming here and have visited Vienna only recently.

Must-sees in Vienna

1.  Schönbrunn Palace

Schönbrunn Palace is one of Vienna’s most significant sights with millions of tourists visiting the palace each year. The estate belonged to the Habsburgs, serving as their imperial summer residence. During the reign of Maria Theresa, the palace became the focus of court and political life.

The palace is open daily from 9 am to 5 pm.

It offers various tours throughout its interior. The tour will give you an insight into what it looked like during their reign. The audioguide will lead you through the staterooms, the private apartments of Franz Joseph and Sisi, and the interiors from Maria Theresa’s reign.

Behind the palace is the Palace Park. The entry is for free.

2. Hofburg Palace

Hofburg Palace was the regal center of the city and the Habsburgss’ residence during the monarchy. Today, three museums are located in the building:

  1. Sisi Museum – insight into Sisi’s personal belongings which illustrated her personality
  2. Imperial Apartments – insight into the winter residence of the Habsburgs
  3. Silver Collection – a collection of objects and items with cultural and historical importance

3. Stephansplatz

Stephansplatz is a square named after its most prominent building – Stephansdom, located in the city’s center. This is where the city comes to life. The square is full of designer shops, restaurants, and coffee shops.

Stephansdom stands in the middle of the square. It is one of the tallest cathedrals in the world. Not only can you admire its beauty from the outside, but you can also appreciate its beauty with intricate details from the inside.

Vienna is such a beautiful city and even though I have been here so many times, there are still so many things for me to explore. Keep in mind, these aren’t all the things to do in Vienna. The city’s center is full of other significant historical buildings and sights, which are all very close to each other, so you can visit them all in one day.
