Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    I had 9.45am tickets pre book. Actually I booked the (€38) classic pass which covered a number of different things. I started with the audio guide tour of the palace. It was a decent tour and not overly crowded but to be honest I have been on better and have visited more impressive palace interiors.

    Afterwards I visited the gardens and these are very impressive. I walked up to the Gloriette and climbed to the top (included in my classic pass ticket) to enjoy the views down to the palace. I also got “lost” in the maze which was fun.

    Whether it’s hopping the cafes and Christmas markets or living through history in the palaces and museums, you can’t go wrong in Vienna, probably the best city in Central Europe (each entitled to their own opinion, of course). I always felt safe and comfortable in this pedestrian-friendly, clean, welcoming place. The city center is larger than your Bruges or Salzburg, but that’s because Vienna really packs a punch for its size. Yet even while feeling sprawling, you still get this small-town charm that is missing in the likes of Lisbon or Amsterdam. I don’t know how to describe it.

    Vienna’s massive gothic cathedral is located in the heart of the city and is a great reference point. It is free to enter but you pay extra for certain things such as going up the tower. It is a busy area of the city and one all visitors will visit at least once during their trip.

    A must visit when in Vienna. Very well organized with time slots. Besides the exhibitions which were amazing, spending time in the gardens was also wonderful.

    Visited this place on a Sunday the 19th of May 2024 and it was very crowded and the tickets to enter the palace were all sold out so wandered around the gardens. The entry to the gardens from the right side of the palace is free but if one stands in a long queue and pays 5 euros for the entry to the garden from the right side then it’s not worth it ! The train ride however is worth it as it lasts for more than 30 minutes with a guided tour of the gardens and the historic area. About the history of the gardens here : The park at Schönbrunn Palace was opened to the public around 1779 and since then has provided a popular recreational amenity for the Viennese population.

    The State Hall of the national library is straight out of Hogwarts! Incredible architecture, fabulous paintings and frescoes, soaring stacks of ancient books (potions and spells?), secret hidden doors, creaky old ladders on wheels, statues and sculptures, antique globes, and much more. Well worth the 10 euros (8 euros seniors) entry!

    The market at City Hall is advertised as the largest in Vienna but I actually found it to be quite small- easily walked at a slow pace in less than an hour. The backdrop is the gorgeous city hall building Rathaus constructed in the mid to late 1800's. The ornate details are incredible and you should walk around the building to take it all in. The market had some beautiful decor, lots of lights that provided a magical glow in the evening and a vintage ferris wheel and merry go round. Some good food and drink options as well.

    It is believed that a church has existed on this site since the early middle ages though the current Baroque church building was begun around 1701 and consecrated to the Holy Trinity in 1733. At that time it was the fist domed structure in Vienna.

    The exterior of the church, which is two storeys high, is coloured white with pale yellow pilasters, entablatures and architraves, the latter which we see around the niches and the windows. There is a portico over the church's main entrance that is topped with a very ornate grey marble monument with three lead statues holding gilded ornaments and implements. These statues represent faith, hope and love. Either side of the main facade are two towers that are three storeys high and have, on each of the first and second storeys, semi-circular niches that hold stone statues (four in total).

    There is a window on the third storey of each of the towers as well as on the second storey of the main facade of the building. This latter window has a clock above it.

    The dome is approximately 5 metres high and is topped with a lantern that allows light into the interior of the cupola.

    The interior single nave has a spectacular array of marble, richly decorated golden stucco, gilded woodwork (particularly the ornate pulpit), beautiful frescoes, particularly inside the cupola and the side chapels, as well as lovely paintings. The fresco of the Coronation of Our Lady inside the cupola is the work of Johann Michael Rottmayr.

    The high altar is quite lovely and, on the ceiling above it, is a fresco that gives the illusion that there is a second smaller cupola. The altarpiece displays the Healing of the Lame by St. Peter and St. Jon in Jerusalem.

    There are several beautifully ornate side chapels. On a balcony above the main entrance is a large Baroque organ that was built in 1751.

    Well worth a visit particularly as it is free to enter - take note Karlskirche.

    VERY touristy area. Like the Times Square of Vienna. The church is impressive and there are some stores that make the visit worth it, but otherwise I don’t recommend spending a ton of time here when visiting Vienna.

    That place is amazing and something I haven't seen before. It's a great place to walk around and have a look at the different graves especially from famous people.

    We walked all through the Ringstrasse and admired all the beautiful and breath taking architecture of all the buildings . It was a worthy tour where we could also go through the Stadtpark.

    Fascinating museum devoted to the works of Hundertwasser. We particularly liked his designs for bookbindings and buildings. Great fun to walk around this building with its undulating floors and mosaic decorations. Sadly we didn't get to see much of the temporary exhibition as the fire alarm went off and we had to evacuate the building. So we were very glad we had visited the main galleries first!

    The beautiful gardens are part of the Hofburg Palace and was built on top of the city's fortifications that were destroyed by Napoleon in 1809. The park was opened to the public in 1823 and remains very popular with locals and visitors alike.
