Re: Heurige of Grinzing

The #38 tram runs from Schottentor U-Bahn near Votivkirche in Vienna to Grinzing terminus.
It runs about every 7 minutes up until midnight when the #38A bus takes over.
I believe that there are better heuriger to be seen than those in Grinzing. I stayed in Grinzing last September and although it was a lovely little village, there seemed to be very little happening. I guess that it was the wrong time of year for the new wine. I'll have to try again some other time. Anyway, I'm sure that the Viennese locals will come in and give you some really good advice on great heuriger and the best times to go.

I agree, that Grinzing is very touristy (and rather expensive), but easy to reach via tram, as already mentioned
My personal favorite is the Heurige "SIRBU" near the Kahlenberg-hill,from the bus terminus #38 on the hill a short walk of 15 minutes down the hill through the vineyards.You will have wonderful sights, as the whole city of Vienna will be at your feet! (Have a look at my "Off the beaten Path" page)
Good Luck & greetings from Vienna !

Hi there!
you should go to SCHOTTENTOR with a bus or tram and from there, take tram 38 that will take you straight to GRINZING. You'll love it. It goes uphill a bit and you'll end up in a very romantic place and green areas. There you can even take a walk uphill and discover more Heurige.

Have a great time!

Travel Tips for Vienna

Stephansdom

by bugulma

The red-marble sepulcher of Emperor Frederick III, sculpted from 1467 to 1513 by Niclas Gerhaert van Leyden; the pulpit, a work from 1514-15 by Anton Pilgram (who put his own relief portrait underneath it as his signature); the Altarpiece of Wiener Neustadt (Wiener Neust?dter Altar), a Gothic winged altar from 1447 - and the tomb of Prince Eugene of Savoy, dating from 1754. I was upstairs by the way. 343 steps :-) Some pics are in travelogue.

Academy of the Fine arts of Vienna.

by breughel

The gallery of paintings of the Academy of the Fine arts of Vienna is essentially visited for its famous altar triptych of the "Last Judgement" by Hieronymus (Jerome) Bosch.
This work of 1504 belonged to the archduke Leopold of Austria and became part of the collection of the count Lamberg, founder of this museum.
The wings of the triptych open to reveal, from left to right, "Original Sin", "The Last Judgement" and "Hell".
Bosch’s pictures have always fascinated viewers; Philip II, king of Spain, collected his works. If in his time Bosch was regarded as the inventor of monsters and chimeras, today his paintings still hold as an intriguing attraction reflecting mysterious practices of the Middle Ages. I was surprised during my last visit at the Prado museum of Madrid to notice that guides stopped their groups in front of the other famous triptych of J. Bosch " The Garden of the Delights " to explain at length its symbolism, while in previous years they would spend more time on Velazquez and other painters of the Spanish school.

Jerome Bosch seems a rising star in the world of the fans of the esotericism, the mysteries and the sects. Should we see here a collateral effect of the "Da Vinci Code" esoteric passion?
Really, there is nothing esoteric in the gallery of the paintings of the Academy of Vienna. This museum is - still - very quiet and has few visitors. It is a pity because it contains a number of other masterpieces.
In front of the Bosch triptych is a magnificent painting of Dieric Bouts "The Coronation of the Virgin".
The museum also has beautiful sections of paintings of the German school with Cranach, the Italians, the Flemish baroque with Rubens and a collection of Dutch painters with a magnificent Pieter de Hooch "Family picture in a courtyard in Delft" and a portrait by Rembrandt.
The amateurs of Venice will find eight views "veduti" by Guardi. Open 10 to 18 h. Closed on Monday.
Entry 7 €,
Reduced price 4 €

Modern Vienna

by tiabunna

*Spoiler - "Favourite Thing" is a set heading rather than my choice of description!*

It rather seems that no city is immune from the invasion of large boxes standing on end, many covered with glass facades. I’m sure that some people find them totally impressive and exciting …

If you’re a skyscraper enthusiast, Vienna has something to offer you also. It’s called “UNO City” and the city leaders have (thankfully) ensured it is set aside from the old city. Nearby, in the same area, is the requisite and now-ubiquitous tower, here called the Donautürm and standing 252M high.

Augustinian Church - Canova sculpture

by yooperprof

Antonio Canova was the favorite sculptor of imperial Vienna in the early 19th century. He received the commission to create this beautiful piece which commemorates the life of Maria Christina, who was the favorite daughter of Empress Maria Theresa. The sculpure was unveiled in 1805 and has been a "hit" ever since. It's an exquisite piece, rendered in Canova's popularly romantic style. What a sad lion!

Vienna: city of music

by call_me_rhia

Vienna is Europe's top city of music and it has a Musical Mile is a "walk of fame" that has nothing original… it’s a copy of the walk of fame in Los Angeles. It was established to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the Theater an der Wien – but at least it has succeeded in making the old "gasometers" more attractive.

It runs from the Naschmarkt to St. Stephen's Cathedral and it is all dedicated to the world of music – not just any name, but only names with a connection to Vienna… and there are 70 of them. Some names? Mozart, obviously, but also Haydn, Liszt, Wagner, Verdi, Strauss, and many more… even Suzi Quatro

At the Theater an der Wien you can buy a brochure (10 euros) and even hire an audio guide (5 euros)
