      Thank you!! I hope you can make your way over there son, I loved living in Austria and exploring Vienna, can’t recommend it enough xo

      I hope you can! Yes the food is just so delicious, rather hearty but so good. As you say, easy to eat your weight in it 🙂

  1. Thanks for posting this guide about Vienna, one of my favorite European capitals. So much history and so many things to do. Also conveniently located to other countries….it can take you just a few hours to get there from pretty much anywhere in the neighboring countries.

      I’m glad you enjoyed 🙂 I know, it’s such a great central location. It always amazes me how in my home state I could drive 3 hours and be in the same state, whereas in that region I could go an hour and be in a whole new country!

  2. Wholeheartedly agree with you on the coffee culture in Vienna! I was in the city last April and found it a pleasant time; while I don’t drink coffee, I still went into a coffee house and got some of their delicious pastries (including fachertorte, different from the sachertorte)! Certainly great for easy day trips in and out of the city, even the country! Glad you had a good time.

      Haha same, I’m not a huge coffee person either but I did try it because wen in rome 🙂 I haven’t tried fachertorte, I’ll have to remember that for the next time, hopefully in the near future!

  3. Wow looks like a beautiful place. Great for photos as well so many awesome buildings. Would love to go to the wine garden and their amusement park sounds like good times. Thanks for sharing.

      Thank you 🙂 And yes, it’s such a stunning palace. Hard to believe it was their “summer home” with such opulence.

    This is a marvelous list of places to visit in Vienna. I adore Vienna, and your ideas would have been so helpful before my visit to Austria. =) The Schonbrunn Palace is stunning! I hope to visit Vienna again, and when I do, your list will be such a great resource. Thanks.

  5. You had me laughing at the Czeched pun haha.

    Vienna is such a beautiful city! I am planning to visit Europe soon and I will make sure never to miss this city (and Prague too)!

    Thank you for this beautiful post. 💕

      Thank you so much! I hope you enjoy your Euro trip <3 I definitely think Vienna and Prague are so worth the visit.

  6. I live in Czech Republic – Brno to be more precise and Vienna is just an hour ride away. I need to visit for at least a weekend! Thanks for all the tips, saving it for our visit! 🙂

      I have heard of Brno! I wish I had more time to visit the Czech Republic, beyond Prague, when I was in the area. Awesome, I’m glad my guide can help 🙂

  7. I’ve never really thought about going to Vienna, it’s not the top of my list in Europe but at the looks of your post, it looks quite rich in culture and the food looks amazing. Especially the apple strudel. I would eat that everyday if I could
