One 12 hours in Vienna

by graefin

Unfortunately we only have one day (12 hours) in Vienna and need your help:
1. What are the most popular tourist attractions.
2. What is the Vienna Public Transportation website's address.
3. What is the easiest and cheapest way to get from the airport to downtown.
4. Are there walking tours?

Any other help would be greatly appreciated.

1)The ones that you pick out for yourself !
2+3)Take the S-Bahn and forget about the CAT ! all you need is a dayticket or 24hour ticket, costs around 5 euros and in addition you also need to buy 1 extra "Einzelfahrschein" each for going into the city plus one for getting back to the airport. You can buy these tickets in the machine at the airport, CANCELL the tickets before you enter the train !!!!
S-bahn gets you to Wien-Mitte (=Landstrasse), there you change to U4, get out at Karlsplatz and walk from there to the Oper, Stephansplatz, Kohlmarkt, Hofburg, Albertina
4)Walkingtours for the 12 hours that you have ? walk on your own that is much better !

I agree with all of the above. Whilst you are in the area of Stephansdom, please take time to visit St Peterskirche. This church will blow you away and it is only a few hundred meters (if that) from Stephansdom. (See tip on my Vienna page). In fact, type in Vienna AT into the search box top right of this page and have a look at all the most popular "Things to do" in Vienna. It is a pity you will only have such a short time, but any time at all spent in this magical and majestic city is better than no time at all. Enjoy!

Go For A Walk at the Gardens at Schonbrunn

by Audrey118

Viennese are actually quite healthy people.
On one morning, I walked from the hotel to Schonbrunn Castle garden; I started the day early - I thought it was early around 6:30am, and there was a handful of people already on the street. It was a Sunday morning, and it when I reached the garden's gate, I already noticed there were several joggers. By around 7:30 am you could see lots of joggers, brisk walkers etc. The garden is rather huge to walk, it is very pleasant, with slight gradient, and some paths are pebbled and steep so my feet was rather sore. You will see lots of squirrels, most are not too friendly. They will dance around your feet, and look for some treats, but they may even bite or scratch you - gosh their claws are pretty sharp!!! You may see some wild chickens also in certain part of the gardens.

Of course you get a magnificent view of the castle from the Gloriette (you can have coffee and cakes and feast your eye with the magnificent view of the castle and city from above), but what I enjoyed most was walking through the gardens, through the rose gardens (there was so many roses all kinds of colours - carrot colour, beige, yellow, orange, pink, some rambling, som tiny - they were awesome, and there is those high hedges - i wonder how it ever gets its trim!!!, and the magnifecent paths that has trees bowing to each other - a picture you always see in Vogue magazine with models clad in latest fashion and that is the background!!!

There are some ponds with some make shift wooden bridge for ducks to get across into the ponds, and water lilies .... the glass house, Palmerhouse which houses lots of plants and butterflies.. roman ruins with columns and obelisk etc..

I only spent 3 hours roaming around the garden - there and gosh - really enjoyed it.
You probably can spend even more hours there; there is the zoo (the oldest in the world) and also the castles, possibly opera at the castle... when I was there smack right in front of the castles, there were people putting up the stage, props, seats as there was a going to be a performance of the great opera Aida - the Egyptian princess...imagine the scene !!! and I hear during Xmas they have markets in front of it...and of course you can spend some time visiting inside the castle.

There are two museums or galleries better said :) in Belvedere. Down the park in Prince Eugen palace there is a part of baroque art situated in this building. The entrance is around 7 Euro but if you come October 26 it is only 3 Euro.


by coceng

This is another must see building/place if you are in Vienna.
Apart from visiting Schonbrunn Palace, I had the chance to see St. Stephen's Cathedral.
The latticework spire of this magnificent cathedral rises high above the city & it's a landmark over Vienna that we couldn't miss.
It is a unique structure, with its vast roof of glittering polychrome tiles.
This Cathedral lies in the heart of this Baroque City.

The Big House of the Prayers

by manuelEB

For people like Charlotte (chauncenetta) "Prayer is simply
meditation". If she is asked to pray she will. Charlotte and I do agree in many things but when it comes to religion and the way religion is used to control and oppress, then we split bills. No, they are not opposite ways to see things, on the contrary, are very similar. I simply do not comply to an invitation for praying in the Big House of the Prayers. Because I know it is not enough to pray to reach peace, and then again my road and Charlotte's road converge....

Tip: Austria seems to be a very religious country. People come to church to pray. (-;
