VIENNA - 2 Nights
Vienna is the
capital and largest city of Austria, and the Historic City Centre
was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
The traditional Vienna is but one of the many facades of this city.
Vienna is also a dynamic, young city, famous for its (electronic)
music scene with independent labels, cult-status underground record
stores, a vibrant club scene, and a multitude of street performers.
The City has a very convenient layout for the traveler:
The 'old town', or city center, is the first district. It is
encircled by the 'Ring' road, which is also the location of many
famous old buildings. Districts 2-9 are gathered within the Gurtel
('belt') Road; there, you can find the Prater (amusement) park, the
hip quarters of the second district (close to Schwedenplatz), the
shopping streets of Mariahilferstrasse, Hundertwasser House, the
Hundertwasser Kunsthaus, and so on.
Outside the 'belt', there's the Donauturm Tower, and Schonbrunn
Castle, the most visited tourist attraction and deservedly so.
