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.
Start off your visit on the 6th (Sat): appreciate the extensive heritage of Ringstrasse, take an in-depth tour of Kaiserliche Schatzkammer Wien, and then don't miss a visit to State Hall of the Austrian National Library.
