Without question this is Austria's number one attraction. A city rich in culture and one that more than any other in our coverage area retains an Old-World atmosphere. Its wide boulevards are lined with stupendous buildings, its narrow lanes sequester charming shops and restaurants, and its museums display old masters by the thousands. But above all, Vienna is a city of music. Its operas, symphonies, chamber orchestras, even its street musicians, are the world's finest. It is also the best walking city in our three countries.
This is a must-see town if ever there was one. Two days is not enough and two weeks not too much.
