Austria is a must-visit destination that offers a vast array of attractions. The country’s capital, Vienna, is a favourite tourist destination and a hugely surprising city for first-time visitors. A city with broad avenues replete with elegant cafés and restaurants, palaces, museums, cathedrals and churches steeped in history. It should come as no surprise that the historical city centre and Schönbrunn Palace are UNESCO World Heritage sites.

Most of the tourist attractions are located in the city centre and can be visited on foot. After exploring the city, you could sample a Schnitzel at a typical restaurant or head to the Naschmarkt, the city’s famous market, where you will find not only food stalls but also luxury restaurants.If you have a sweet tooth, you should try a typical Viennese coffee at the Alt-Wiener Kaffeehaus.

After dark, Vienna gains a new lease of life! Discover the city’s vibrant nightlife in the various bars located in the seventh and eighth districts. The nightlife in Vienna is very varied and the locals enjoy showing off their city. If for any reason you feel lost, you can go to the Travel Shack (near Westbahnof): a popular student haunt, it isthe perfect place to get your evening started.

Vienna also offers a host of other activities for you to try: In summer, be sure to go for a dip at the Alte Donau in Donauinsel. And it would be remiss of us not to mention the famous Vienna Opera; seeing the Barber of Seville, La Traviata or Tosca in the world’s fifth-biggest opera house in an unforgettable experience.

A number of international organizations are headquartered in Vienna and the Vienna International Centre houses one of the four headquarters of the UN and the International Atomic Energy Agency. This is no mere chance. Vienna is a political heavyweight and is close to eight key borders: Germany, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenia, Italy, Switzerland and Liechtenstein.
