City of Dreams

The cultural, economic, and political center of the country, Vienna has developed from its early Celtic and Roman roots into a medieval and Baroque city, with an old town that was designated a World Heritage Site in 2001.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Schonbrunn Palace and Belvedere Palace. St. Stephen's Cathedral and Ringstrasse will appeal to history buffs. Explore Vienna's surroundings by going to Ysperklamm (in Yspertal), Wachau Valley (in Joching) and Melk Abbey (in Melk). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at The Hofburg, identify plant and animal life at Johannesbachklamm, don't miss a visit to Stephansplatz, and pause for some serene contemplation at Die St. Georgs-Kathedrale.
