Vienna is one of the world's most beautiful, historic cities, brimming with nostalgia and with all the grand architecture of a once glorious empire, for three centuries it was home to the Austrian monarchy. The architectural image of the city is dominated by the Ringstrasse, a four kilometre long boulevard which encircles the centre of the city. It was under the supervision of Maria Theresia that the magnificent royal residence, the Schönbrunn Palace, was completed. More than seventeen hundred beautifully-preserved rooms afforded the large Imperial family much freedom of movement and its magnificent interior décor is one of the most lavish of its time. The Palace Grounds contain the outstanding Neptun-Fountain and, at the highest point, the Gloriette, from which the entire palace grounds are visible as well as the charming Schönbrunn Zoo, the oldest animal enclosure in the world. St. Stephen's Cathedral dominates the centre of Vienna and, not far away behind the State Opera House, is the venerable Hotel Sacher with its old Viennese coffee house. Johann Strauss, the Vienna Boys' Choir, Lipizzaner horses and Heurige wine...Vienna is a city of irresistible charm!

The temperature in the mine is only 9 degree?s so it makes sense to take a warm jacket with you, but if you have forgotten your jacket they will give you a blanket to wrap around your shoulders and keep the chill out.

Some people complain of too many tourists, to them I have a simple suggestion...

Review of Vienna (Austria)
Advantages: Style and Grace Disadvantages: None really
...Vienna - the capital of Austria and the home of the Habsberg empire - was not my first choice as a holiday destination. In fact we got there a little by mistake. We wanted to go to Venice but my dyslexia got the better of the travel agent and we wound up there. We were so glad. It truly is a magnificent city.
Vienna was the headquarters of Europes longest lasting Empire. The Habsbergs ruled over...
