Sightseeing
Schönbrunn Palace Is a 10-15min walk down the hill from my apartment. Beautiful park with maze and a zoo, and as a lovely christmas market in winter. At the end of the seventeenth century Emperor Leopold I commissioned the Baroque architect Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach, who had received his training in Rome, to design an imperial hunting lodge for his son, Crown Prince Joseph, later to become Emperor Joseph I. Replacing the château de plaisance built on this site for the dowager empress Eleonora of Gonzaga in 1642, it was to grow into a palatial imperial residence over the course of the eighteenth century. It has a beautiful huge garden with artful planted flower and fountains, a palm houses, a maze and a zoo. !!The Vienna Philharmonic - Summer Night Concert in May is a MUST VISIT. Its free but quiet busy so you should go as early as possible!! ;)

Vienna’s stunning Belvedere Palace houses the world’s largest collection of paintings by Gustav Klimt. Prince Eugene of Savoy (1663-1736), an accomplished general and art connoisseur, built the Belvedere palace as his summer residence. Today, the Belvedere, one of the most important baroque buildings in Austria, is located in Vienna’s third district. However at the time of its construction, the palace was located outside the city gates. Belvedere palace consists of two seperate buildings: the Upper and Lower Belvedere, which are connected by a stunning baroque garden. Enjoy views of Vienna’s first district from the Upper Belvedere. Today it houses not only Austrian art from the Middle Ages to the present day, but also the world's largest Klimt collection, with the golden paintings "The Kiss" and "Judith" as the highlights. Masterpieces by Schiele and Kokoschka, as well as works of French Impressionism and the Vienna Biedermeier era round out the exhibition. Prince Eugene’s apartments and staterooms are located at the Lower Belvedere. The feudal splendor of the palace’s aristocratic original owner is reflected in the Hall of Grotesques, the Marble Gallery, and the Golden Room. The Lower Belvedere and the Orangery are used mainly for temporary exhibitions, while the Palace Stables are now home to some 150 objects of sacred medieval art that blend with the Baroque ambiance in a compelling fashion. The Palace Gardens are unfolding in strict symmetry along a central axis to the prestige building of the Upper Belvedere and features beautiful sculptures, fountains and cascades.

St. Stephen's Cathedral is the symbol of Vienna. Construction commenced in the 12th century. Today, it is one of the most important Gothic structures in Austria. St. Stephen's Cathedral is 107.2 meters long and 34.2 meters wide. It has four towers. The tallest of these is the south tower at 136.44 meters. The tower room, from which there is a gigantic view across Vienna, is reached via 343 steps. A total of 13 bells hang here. However, the best-known bell of St. Stephen's Cathedral, the Pummerin, is located in the 68.3 meter-tall north tower. It is the second-biggest free-swinging chimed church bell in Europe. On the roof of St. Stephen's Cathedral, colorful roof tiles were laid to create the Royal and Imperial double-headed eagle and the coat of arms of the city of Vienna. The interior of St. Stephen's Cathedral was changed again and again over the centuries, right through to the Baroque period. A visit to St. Stephen's Cathedral is a must for every visitor to Vienna. In addition to valuable altars and side chapels, the impressive cathedral treasure can also be seen, including relics decorated with gold and precious stones, monstrances, liturgical texts and books as well as vestments. Numerous important people were also given their final resting place in St. Stephen's Cathedral: Emperor Friedrich III. was buried in an impressive marble sarcophagus. The tomb’s cover slab alone weighs eight tonnes. Prince Eugene of Savoy has his final resting place in a private chapel. And famous names buried in the catacombs of St. Stephen's Cathedral include the Habsburg duke Rudolph IV. “the founder", who laid the foundation stone for the Gothic reconstruction of the cathedral in 1359. In addition, the graves of Vienna’s cardinals and archbishops can be found in the catacombs.

The Vienna State Opera is one of the top opera addresses in the world – where you can enjoy the very best in first-class productions. It's my old workplace so I'm making this a must see. ;) The Vienna State Opera is one of the top opera addresses in the world. The Vienna Opera House is not only the -first house at the Ring- and therefore also the most impressive building at the Ringstrasse but also a worldwide known opera house. At 1709 seats and 567 standing-rooms the audience can watch daily opera performances, ballet shows, sometimes concerts and one time a year an operetta - that is the -Fledermaus- as traditional New Year's Eve performance. Worldwide known are also the Wiener Philharmoniker. Each musician of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra is exclusively selected and has to be member of the opera orchestra. A membership there for some years is a requirement for the entry to the -Wiener Philharmoniker-. Their traditional New Year's concert is performed in the -Musikvereinssaal- and broadcast from there in more than 70 countries. Not less popular is the Vienna Opera Ball, which is visited by VIPs from all over the world, especially artists and popular people from economy and politics. At the last Thursday in the Carnival the house transforms into a magnificent ballroom for more than 5000 visitors. Rich flower decorations, the dress code (tailcoat only for man and evening dress for woman is obliged) and the glamorous opening performed by the young ladies and gentlemen make this ball in Vienna to a very important event of the High Society.

Food scene
There is quite a number of markets where you can buy fresh vegetable and asorted tidbits. But Naschmarkt is arguably more than that: it is a Viennese institution dating back to the 16th century. The location itself is spectucular: Wienfluss, Vienna's second river, was roofed over during the 19th century. Some dealers put up their stalls on top of this roof and that was that. Today, Naschmarkt is a unique mixture of Austrian traditions and oriental influences. Viennese shrewdness meets bazar mentality. It is a great place to shop for goodies and to have lunch at one of the many stalls, coffee shops and restaurants. Saturdays, Vienna's major fleemarket sells anything from junk to antiques to early birds. Linke Wienzeile 40 is the adress of two beautiful art deco houses built by Viennese Jugendstil architect Otto Wagner himself.
