For 600 years, Vienna was the capital of the Habsburg Dynasty, that ruled a large part of Europe. The pomp and splendour of that time has been preserved.
Most of Vienna’s sights are situated within the Ringstrasse, a wide ring road of about 4 kilometres, that encircles the centre of the city. The Hofburg, the imperial palace of the Hapsburgs, is worth a visit. Schönbrunn Palace, the magnificent St. Stephen’s Cathedral and the Votive Church are undeniably architectural gems. We also advise you to take a walk round the Ring. You will be amazed by magnificent mansions, the State Opera and the large number of museums.
Outside the centre of Vienna, there is also the magnificent Belvedère Palace and the famous Prater Park, an amusement park with the well-known Vienna Ferris Wheel, which is one of the biggest Ferris wheels in Europe. To take a break from all that sightseeing, you can relax in a typical wine cellar or traditional coffee house.
