Vienna (Wien), the capital of the Republic of Austria and one of Europe's most visited towns, owes much of its appeal and rich history to its magnificent location on the banks of the Danube River. For centuries, Vienna was the natural centre of the formerly wide Habsburg Empire, and it remains Austria's most significant business and cultural powerhouse to this day.
With its many wonderful historical viewing options, famous art collections, sparkling palaces, and unique musical history, Vienna continues to draw over 17 million people each year. This reverence for the country's rich culture can still be seen in Vienna's splendid museums, outstanding music halls, and one of the world's great opera houses.
Vienna preserves a particular charm and flare despite its undeniably international environment. This is underlined by its excellent ancient architecture, famed horse-cabs known as Fiakers, and splendid coffeehouses serving famous Viennese sweets and pastries. If you're looking for amazing locations to visit in Vienna for a single day or several things to do over several days, this charming city has lots of options.
