We have often wondered why most people bypass Vienna for other, more popular European destinations. Sure, it can seem a bit stodgy if you are not into history, art or classical music. But even if you can resist the Hapsburg legacy, Klimt masterpieces and Mozart concerts (though you shouldn’t), you will still find yourself spoilt for choice when it comes to things to see and do in this beautiful city.
We chanced upon some amazing sights including the most charming, old-school amusement park and a market dotted with a bunch of delightful restaurants. Even when it comes to local cuisine, schnitzel and strudel may be staples but there is so much other exciting food apart from these culinary clichés.
We have already visited this grand city twice. And we have a sneaking suspicion that even our second trip won’t be our last.
There’s a lot to see in Vienna so we would recommend at least 4 nights and 5 days to soak in all that the city has to offer.
