Vienna inspires the traveler seeking “Old World charm.” Vienna’s churches, palaces, and treasured artworks make it a must-see destination on your European tour. We will begin at Belvedere Palace, a magnificent Baroque complex of structures that contains Vienna’s most extensive collection of medieval art, Baroque art, and Viennese Art Nouveau. Some of the illustrious artworks include pieces by Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, and Oskar Kokoschka. Originally Prince Eugene Savoy’s summer palace, the grandiose Belvedere Palace has been a retreat for many nobles of the Hapsburg dynasty.
Next on the tour is Karlskirche, a feat of Baroque architecture. Then we will make our way into the center of town, passing the State Opera where Gustav Mahler and Karl Boehm conducted operas, and Hotel Sacher.
Then it’s on to Graben, one of Vienna’s most famous streets in the very heart of the city. We will visit the St. Steven Cathedral (Stephansdom), a majestic Gothic cathedral that has stood as a symbol of the city for over eight hundred years. Follow the quaint medieval passageways to the Hofburg Palace, another sprawling abode for the ruling Hapsburgs, where you will find in the vast complex of buildings and parks distinctive collections and exhibitions.
Vienna exalts through extensive documentation the lives and accomplishments of such important figures as Mozart, Schubert, Bruckner, and Freud. Much of the beauty of the city is in Innerstadt, at the center of the concentrically arranged avenues known as “The Ring.” Located here are the Museum of Fine Arts (Kunsthistorisches, Austria’s national gallery of art), the Giant Ferris Wheel at the Prater, the modern Danube Tower, The Parliament Building, the City Hall, and the United Nations Building. View the “Hundertwasserhaus,” known for its unconventional, contemporary architecture. There is also the Naschmarkt, Vienna’s largest market, at one and a half kilometers long. The market is set in front of a number of Jugendstil (Austrian Art Nouveau) buildings.
