I've just checked out craigslist.org. There IS a page for Austria, but not for Vienna. Perhaps you can arrange for a local to meet you in Vienna to buy a second hand bike??

Travel Tips for Vienna

Musuems and Churches and Art Galleries and Castles

by Audrey118

I guess when everyone goes to Europe, people think of castles, churches, art galleries and whatsnot.

I guess it is their culture, their history etc.
Vienna is much smaller than UK, has less musuems and art galleries than UK, but I still did not have enough time to visit them all!!! well I only had 4 days = and one day I want to set aside to shop.

It is very easy to move around Vienna - all you need is when you get out of the aircraft there will lots of booth, and sometimes they are manned, there is a very good flyer or pamplet on the city. I also suggest buying a 10 euro booklet on the Vienna tourist attracttion. And with a good map you can see a lot of its culture and history by foot.

Vienna has a majestic history with goes back to the Haspburg family, and with the wealth and great taste for art, and refined things, you have a feast of their artifacts, their beautiful castles, lots of churches and columns in thanksgiving from deliverance from plagues, and from war etc.

Lots of people go to Europe with ideas that all churches are the same. Having a guide book will tell you otherwise. Each church was built for a specific reason, and their architecture reflects the period, the background of the king etc. And there are lots of masterpiece artworks to admire. Like I said without a guidebook, going into them is like OK - this is a great piece of work!!!! I give you examples of St Charles Church, it was named after the patron saint Charles and after the king charles who commissioned it. And there is a great artwork depicting the saint at the altar. There are reasons for the trajan columns etc...and the angels that stood infront ot the church.

There is a lot of history in each piece of monument and how the road leads to another....you will be amazed by how things came about. I am no expert, and I think I will need a couple more trips to Vienna to discover and be dazzled by its beauty behind all this.

see Votivkirche -
One of the wonderful churches of Vienna! As a gesture of gratitude that he survived an assassination attempt, Emporer Francis Joseph I. had this church built in 1853. This church impresses its viewers with its rich adornment of numerous figurines and the subdued lighting inside that filters through the more than 70 stained glass windows.

Fancy Fireshed

by tiabunna

This just has to be Vienna! Where else would you find a fire brigade based in a baroque building! If my translation of Roman dates is right, the building dates from 1732. It isn’t a large building, so it’s interesting that the fire vehicles also park outside the building alongside, which has a sign “Generali” (photo 2): I think that is an insurance company. Interesting and slightly surprising, too, to see the wide variety of vehicle types in use (photos 3,4). I must admit to being slightly amused when I thought of the contrast with our local volunteer rural fire brigade!

Where to begin . . . I suppose...

Where to begin . . . I suppose one of the most impressive places in Vienna is Stephansdom (St. Stephan's cathedral), located in the center of the Ringstrasse. You can't miss it. It was built around the 13th century and you could spend several days admiring all the statutes, stained glass, huge magnificent pipe organs, etc. If time permits, you must take the guided tour of the catacombs underneath Stephansdom--it is absolutely fascinating. Also, you might notice on the outside on the tall spire, looking from the from of the building about 1/2 way up, 2 canon balls imbedded in the outer walls. One of these canon balls, has a face sculpted on it! We had so many fond memories of Vienna, it is quite diffcult to pick out just one. It seems as though few days pass by without, thinking of Vienna in all its splendor. Walking down some of the smaller, narrow streets, wondering, did Mozart or Beethoven walk here? What would it have been like to listen to the great composers back in there day. Oh, and if you are a choco-holic, you absolutely must get some Mozart Balls. You can find them most everywhere and they are most wonderful chocolate.

Walk, Don't Walk

by mrdarius

People in Vienna adhere stictly to the rules concerning street-crossing. You will not see people cross against the light, even if there are no cars or trolleys in sight for miles. They all just stand there on the curb patiently.

Coming from New York and Boston, this was hard to get used to, and it did involve a couple incidences where my sister and I crossed anyway and were given quizzical looks.
