Old Town Vienna Austria

Historical Buildings in Vienna

Vienna has been inhabited at least since the days of the Romans. It was already a metropolis in those days but the face of the city changed repeatedly over the centuries. You can still imagine the glories of the past centuries in the Viennese old town.

Art Nouveau, Baroque and Biedermeier

Rigidly followed laws concerning the protection of monuments by government offices have made it possible to admire buildings from various cultural periods. While these buildings are meticulously restored, they don't turn into museums. People still inhabit and work in the elegant city palaces and middle class houses; government offices and institutions have taken over the splendid historical buildings of the city.

Cultural holiday in Vienna

The center of Vienna is affectionately known to the Viennese as "The First" - in a reference to the numbers assigned to the districts by the Vienna municipality. Most of the important sights are located in Vienna's inner city - in almost overwhelming proximity.

The Magnificent Center of Vienna

The inner city is full of numerous sights, monuments, churches and museums and is surrounded by the splendid boulevard, the "Ring". Inside of the Ring and on the sides of this imperial avenue, you can see the Imperial Palace, the Parliament, the City Hall, St. Stephen's Cathedral, the Natural History Museum and its twin, the Art History Museum, the Albertina, as well as many other cultural monuments.

Shopping in the City

The center of Vienna is not only full of art and culture, but is one of the most exclusive shopping addresses in Vienna. It's especially elegant on the Graben and the Kohlmarkt, where the flagship stores of internationally famous luxury brands alternate with galleries and shops selling traditional Viennese arts and crafts. This is also where you can find legendary cafés such as the unspoiled icon of Vienna, Café Hawelka in a side street off the Graben, which is unimpressed by the stream of tourists flowing by.
