There is so much to do in the inner district. Get out walking and enjoy the beautiful city. Very easy to get round and so well sign posted. Beautiful parks and stunning buildings.

I recently went on a 4 day weekend, there is so much to see it wasn't enough time. A very 'laid back' atmosphere and felt very secure. Walked everywhere as everything is so close with no hills at all. Do have a early evening drink on one of the many roof top bars to get another perspective of this gorgeous... More

All buildings in this city museum were amazing. Spent hours waking around most of them . A lot of the grounds you don't have to pay to enter only if you want to go around the buildings.

The historic centre of Vienna is amazingly picturesque. Anywhere yopu stand you can click a million pictures. There is so much history. The guided tours should be taken after which one should walk in the old city.

We loved Vienna; we found that it was just as easy to walk around the city; as it was to use the public transport. Get a Vienna Pass and add on a travel pass. This gives you all the options; especially useful when you feet are sore and time is short. Try the street food and the coffee houses. Fantastic!... More

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
