Vienna - The city of Music

Vienna, Austria’s capital, the city of Music, lies in the east of the country on the banks of the Danube River.  It was a lovely surprise as I had no real expectations about the city other than I wanted to see my favourite artists work, Gustav Klimt, so the rest was all a bonus.  

The cities grandeur is the result of the powerful Habsburg monarchy over the course of six centuries.  There is so much to see in this small city full of so much art and culture, from the obvious art galleries, to the Lipizzaner stallion’s performance at the Spanish riding school, to simply sitting sampling the famous Viennese coffee cake in one of cities many opulent coffee shops.   

The cities artistic legacy was shaped by other famous residents including Mozart, Strauss, Beethoven and Sigmund Freud.    There are many museums, art galleries and Palaces and at every turn the streetscape is full of Baroque buildings. 

There are numerous concerts to attend showcasing some of the famous resident’s music to going to Sunday mass and hearing the famous Vienna Boys choir. 

If you take one of the many river cruises that journey along the Danube, make sure that you take some time to research what you want to see in Vienna as it has an overwhelming amount of options.
