  • We love Vienna. The people are friendly and the architecture is simply stunning. There is plenty to see and do and some amazing cafes and restaurants.

  • No other city in the world can be like Vienna. It would take three life times to see it all, and then a fourth to see what you have forgotten! Don't get into the tourist traps, but read about Vienna, get a good city map, learn some German, and venture out into the city filled with secret, small passages, Cafés, wonderful museums and very good food.
  • Nice historical place. Not very crowded in May.
