Top ways to experience Historic Center of Vienna
The area
Neighbourhood: Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.

Beautiful views, wonderful historical buildings.
Vienna has a good public transportation system so you can get there by metro or tram and explore by walking around
We did the horse tour which was nice too for 50 euros

There was so much to see from the self guided walking tour, and all in such close proximity... Something beautiful is never more than a moment away.

A beautiful city with plenty to see and do, a touch on the pricey side so be prepared to spend. Easy to walk around and also easy to become familiar with the layout.

Beautiful buildings, clean and easily accessible via the U-bahn. You should take a walk to get a feel of the city. It can be pretty expensive to eat or have a coffee though.

This city was amazing to see. So much beauty and prestige perfect buildings. You could spend a year and just begin to understand the history and culture of this place.
Go to the center and walk. Get lost in shops, drinking coffee and having bratwurst.

The historic centre of Vienna is a UNSECO listed site, and no wonder with it’s vast architectural landscape.

Expect to see grand buildings, parks, monuments, Baroque castles and much more.

Stephansplatz is also only a few minutes away.

Depending on what your itinerary is, spend and hour or spend the day/ night.
