Travelling To Vienna

By Jonathan Asher

One of Europe’s most intriguing and historically rich cities, Vienna, sits in a central position that gives travelers easy access to Eastern and Western Europe. It is home to some truly awesome architectural design such as the gothic St. Stephen’s Cathedral and the modern Haas House. Vienna and its surrounds have enough for you to do and see to occupy you for a few days or a few weeks.

The layout of Vienna may seem confusing but most of the main attractions are easy to discover as they are generally close to multi-named ring roads. These circular routes change every few degrees of the circle, making naming confusing. The Rathaus, the Museumsquartier and the Opera are all easy to find and attractions that are well worth visiting. The main train station, the Westbahnhof is on Mariahilfer Strasse, which features many hostels, shops and cheap places to eat.

What would travel be without trying the local fare – Wiener schnitzel, Sachertorte, strudel, sausages and kebabs are just some of the foods that Vienna has to offer. Vienna also has a strong coffee and caf culture where guests are welcome to stay as long as they like and read the paper.

There is so much to see in Vienna, that you will want to do your research before you go. Should you spend your time at the Schnbrunn Palace, The Vienna Opera House, Vienna’s MUMOK or St. Stephen’s Cathedral. If time permits, hopefully you will see them all, however a travel guide will give you insight into these locations and hopefully give you an idea if they fit your style or not.

There are a number of travel guides that will go into detail about these locations as well as many others – Europe on a Shoestring (Lonely Planet Shoestring Guides) is a popular and well-worn travel guide but for more detail try The Rough Guide to Vienna – it’s the most recently published mainstream Vienna travel guide. Also take a look at the Moleskine Vienna Notebook – it’s a pocket-sized lined notebook with several pages of information about Vienna travel.

For more information about Vienna check out the Vienna travel guide first and then take a look at the travelling Europe guide.
