Things to Do in Vienna

The city has significant historical importance, with ties that can be traced back to ancient Roman influence. One of our favorite activities in Vienna is also one of the most popular, and that is a visit to Schloss Schonbrunn. This opulent palace was once an imperial summer residence, and it is considered by many to be one of the most outstanding cultural monuments in Austria. An UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site, it's also home to truly breathtaking formal gardens along with the Gloriette monument. As if that's not enough to keep you enthralled, it also boasts the world's oldest zoo.

After seeing Schloss Schonbrunn, the next item on our list of things to do in Vienna is visiting Belvedere Palace. Located in the heart of the city, this gorgeous Baroque showpiece is the former summer residence of Prince Eugene of Savoy. Comprised of the Upper and Lower Belvedere palaces, it also features elaborate gardens. Be sure to visit Marble Hall in Upper Belvedere for a magnificent view of the city.

Once you've taken in the architecture and history of the city's palaces, visiting museums and galleries is something that's high on our list of favorite activities in Vienna. This area features examples of modern architecture as well as Baroque buildings. It's one of the world's largest complexes devoted to art and culture. You'll find nine museums along with exhibition and event spaces. We recommend the Leopold Museum (home to a large collection of modern Austrian art, including works by Gustav Klimt) and the MUMOK (a museum of modern art with a great collection of works by artists from around the world).
 
Last but certainly not least, we'd be remiss not to include the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra to our list of recommended things to do in Vienna. The performance hall itself is a thing of beauty, while the actual performances are breathtaking.
