The imperial atmosphere can be felt in Vienna as before, by the imposing palaces, representative government offices and churches elaborately landscaped noticeable. Also, the Belvedere Palace is an absolute highlight.
In the middle of the city, in the Hofburg, where as you would never expect it, there are also stables and a riding hall of the historic Spanish Riding School of Vienna. Demonstrations of the unique lippizzaner should belong to a fixed point of your sightseeing.

But Vienna is also a world capital of music. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Joseph Haydn established the style of Viennese Classicism. By Ludwig van Beethoven, this world-famous and much-loved genre continued to develop through to the romance. The famous Viennese waltz and the Radetzky March we mainly due to the 1804-born Johann Baptist Strauss. Became world-famous Vienna but also the reputation of the Vienna State Opera and the skill of the Vienna Philharmonic and the Vienna Boys' Choir (“Wiener Sängerknaben”), continues to provide the international furore.

We recommend strengthening during a city tour to the excellent Viennese cuisine. Due to the historically strong Hungarian and Bohemian character is especially tempting, especially the world of sweet sins. The Viennese cuisine has more to offer than “Wiener Schnitzel” and pancakes and is hugely popular not only among the local population. Old Viennese wine taverns and public houses are worth a visit, not to mention the Swiss house in the Prater.
