As the capital of Austria and most important city on the Blue Danube, Vienna has many faces. Although mostly famous for its coffeehouse culture and rich history, Vienna has plenty more to offer. In the summer the city tempts with beautiful beer gardens and wine taverns; in the winter Vienna’s museums and exhibitions make for great outings. Vienna has more attractions than you can shake a stick at. From St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Vienna’s landmark and Austria’s most important gothic building, to the Giant Ferries Wheel, from the Museum of Art History to the Albertina and the Museums Quartier: culture lovers will be delighted with the city’s offerings. Vienna is also a great place to combine sightseeing with shopping along Kärntner Straße and Mariahilfer Straße.
