Given 2 days, what are the places you recommend given a little time

by thina22

I'm going to Vienna this Dec 11(will arrive 10 pm) and have to leave Sunday night. I only got so little time to visit such a wonderful place but with a little amount of time, I want to make the most out of my visit.

On Sunday, I will watch the Vienna boys choir, that would give lessen the time I have to go around.

Also, I want to do some Christmas shopping as well. Can you recommend something from Vienna that I can give my family when I visit Manila a week after.


Thanks in advance! =)

vienna is a great city with so much to see. if you are interested in art, as we are, there are two museums to recommend - the Kunthistorisches old master's museum with a roomful of Breughels and lots of other incredible art. Second, the Albertina with comprehensible modern art, a boatload of Durer, and if it is still there a superb and educational travelling exhibit on impressionists.

The Hofburg and Schonbrunn palaces are also excellent but frankly no better than others in central europe if you have visited this type of attraction before.

Just walk around! Vienna is very much a walkable city, you could enjoy the sights as much as shop at the same time. If you hate walking, you may take the hop-on-hop-off bus instead; start off at the Opera House. See my travelogue (http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/tt/a4833/#TL) to get some ideas as to what to see. Only the Schonbrunn palace is a bit further out but easily accessible by public transport, give this place half a day. Another alternative is the Hofburg palace and museum.

As to pasalubongs, you could buy one of those shirts that says "There are no kangaroos in Austria!", Manner wafers and chocolates and Pez candies. You can buy them from the stores along Karntnerstrasse, a pedestrian shopping street between St. Stephen's Cathedral (another must-see) and the Opera House.

I'll vote with Bob (stamporama), his is a great idea. Just walk around the Ringstrasse and you will see some wonderful sites such as the Rathaus, Parliament, Hofburg, etc.either right on it or so clse by that you can't miss them. Make your way to Graben (great shopping) which will lead you to Stephansdom and on past there to the Danube Canal. See my tips on my Vienna page for the whereabouts of some really lovely churches. All can be reached on foot in less than a day. Schoenbrunn is half a day but well worth it. Or is you are a child at heart, go to the Prater and ride the Riesenrad. the train and tram systems are wonderful for when your feet get tired.

Vienna has a very compact city centre and walking is a great way to see everything. I bought a "Top Ten" guide to Vienna and used the suggested walks in the book and they were excellent. Also the U Bahn is a fast and cheap way to get around - buy a day pass. I would say go to Schloss Belvedere as you get 2 palaces for the price of one! In fact it's free to walk around them anyway.

BTW walking around the city centre at night is very rewarding. There are hardly any tourists by comparison with the day and some streets the only sound to hear is your own footsteps. And with the grand buildings lit up its actually more enjoyable than during the day.

Travel Tips for Vienna

in the way to Summer Palace

by manuelEB

Walking towards the palace from the closest train station
you will see this building. Typical thing in Vienna. This is not the best, not the most beuatiful but it was in my way and it was the first one I took a picture of... What's the meaning of that dome at the top? What's inside? Why mosto of the old buildings has it? Why the chicken crossed the rai-road? Why? Why? The architeture of the whole city is just marvelous. I was wondering if the Imperial Governenment did not subsidize cost for ornaments and alike in "fachades"... Possible?!

Another image from this quiet...

by steventilly

Another image from this quiet area of the city, this is somewhere near Sigmund Freud Park. We just liked the trees, the statues, the quiet back street sort of feel that it had. At this point we were headed back towards the hustle and bustle of the city centre.

Augustinerkirche

by Ekaterinburg

Sunday mass in Augustinerkirche was my first exposure to Viennese churches. It is in no way typical, being rather austere inside and lacking in Baroque decoration. The Choir here is famous though and to get a seat you must arrive at least an hour in advance. It's well worth the effort as the singing is just superb and then afterwards you can set off in fear and trepidation to the vaults to see Augustinerkirche's biggest claim to fame. This was a big anticlimax as the 'vault' in question is a little side chapel and all that is visible of the famous 'Hearts of the Hapsburgs' are 54 urns neatly arranged in rows. I'm not sure what I expected - maybe red bleeding hearts impaled on stakes - but peeping through a tiny grille, in a perfectly ordinary room certainly lacked a sense of occasion.
Back in the church there are two major attractions: Canova's marble cenotaph commemorating Marie Christine ( Maria Theres's favourite daughter ) and the large rococo organ on which Bruckner composed his mass no. 3.
Augustinerkirche is part of the Hofburg and is situated on Josephplatz. As the church is pretty difficult to photograph, I've included a photo of the square it's situated in.

In the Albertina or...

by steventilly

In the Albertina or Albertinaplatz stands the Monument Against War And Fascism. This was quite controversial and many Jews didn't like it, and thought the images were degrading. Because of this feeling a proper Holocaust memorial was erected elsewhere in the city (see further down this page).

Unspoken Rules while in Public

by asrai

Austrians get offended easily if the Unspoken Public Rules of Etiquette are broken. Thus, if you want to avoid being an offensive tourist, it's best to know of these rules.

1. NEVER EVER put your feet on a seat in ANY public transportation. Even if you've been walking for days and are totally exhausted, resist the tempation to put your feet up on the seat in front of you. It will only shock and upset the locals around you. Even if you do try, I can bet that a local will be prompt to tell you to put your feet back on the floor.

2. ALWAYS ALWAYS stand on the right side of the escalator and pass on the left side. It's like the "driving on the autobahn" rules but on escalators. When I lived in Vienna it took me awhile to get used to this concept but when I did, I found myself getting EXCESSIVELY frusterated when I would be in a hurry and a crowd of tourists would be blocking the escalator not having read the sign at the bottom that says "Pease stand right."

3. If you're in a group and not speaking german, keep the conversation noise level down. This isn't imperative, but don't be surprised if you get looks of disgust from older Austrians and you're speaking too loudly.
