The Vienna city center is pretty and fun to walk around. It is packed with historical buildings, and more modern shops. We spent a lovely morning just walking around, taking in the sights.

Spend at least a whole day here as it is brimming with places to see and so much atmosphere. Some of the museums are a bit costly but also worth it and give yourself lots of browsing time for the galleries.

All within the Ringstrasse and walkable - do it yourself - don't get a tour or bus - if needed use the Tram. And always the Pastry Shops are waiting

Historical Center of Vienna includes many interesting places and landmarks within a walking distance. Simply wandering around the streets walking between the highlights is an amazing experience.

The city centre is very beautiful and really nicely lit after dark but it could do with more signage as it is sometimes hard to know what you're looking at. Bring your phone or a map with more info than the name of the building...More

We had not visited Vienna before and what a wonderful experience. A compact centre allows almost all of the important sights to be visited on foot (we did do a lot of walking). We look forward to returning in the not too distant future.
