Sights and excursion destinations in Vienna

What you shouldn’t miss out on in Austria's capital

You’re drawn to the Austrian capital? The Austria Trend Hotels know what you shouldn’t miss out on in Vienna – and where families can feel particularly welcome. Start your excursions from one of our three hotels with family bonus.

Sightseeing and Shopping in Vienna

27 castles and more than 150 palaces – in Vienna, there’s plenty to marvel at! Seeing everything in one go is almost impossible. The most famous sights are certainly St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Schönbrunn Palace and the Museum of Art History. A walk through the Museumsquartier (MQ) is always a great idea, too.

Eager to go shopping? The Kärntner Straße, the Graben and the Kohlmarkt are the perfect locations to find some special treasures. The most well-known shopping street, however, is the Mariahilfer Straße with its more than one hundred shops and stores. The little alleys off to the side of it are worth a quick detour as well.

Viennese hotspots that ensure an unforgettable stay

What would Vienna be without the Hofburg? For an extra-dose of arts and culture, the Hofburg needs to be part of every trip to the Austrian capital. It’s one of the biggest palace-complexes in the world and it houses a number of museums as well as the Spanish Riding School. Another must is the Vienna State Opera.

On an island in the sun … The Donauinsel (Danube Island) is perfect for everyone who just wants to spend some time in nature and craves sports as a diversion from sightseeing. In or on the water, on a bike, on skates or at the volleyball court: get some exercise. And more importantly: enjoy your time away from city life!

Gourmets can be found at the Naschmarkt – of course! At the most famous market in Vienna, more than 120 stalls and venues offer all kinds of delicacies and culinary delights. Whether you want to try Viennese, Indian or Vietnamese food: the Naschmarkt entices visitors with its colourful blend of tastes and flavours. The flea market on Saturdays enjoys cult status by now, too.

A special highlight for nature lovers is the Lainzer Tiergarten! This publicly accessible wildlife preserve is located far off the city centre and part of the biosphere reserve Wienerwald. The garden is home to a large number of different types of free-roaming deer – and, hence, a true highlight for all lovers of regional animals!

Family-friendly destinations for excursions in Vienna

How about a visit to Austria’s first children’s museum ZOOM? It’s located in Vienna’s 7th district and calls itself a “space of interaction”. Children and artists meet at the ZOOM Atelier. The ZOOM Ocean and special lectures for children foster the kids’ interest in the environment.

Where the music’s at! At the Vienna House of Music, everything revolves around sound. Recording the first CD on a computer. Conducting the Viennese Philharmonic Orchestra. Making animal figures dance at the music theatre. The House of Music offers all kinds of musical experiences – as well as special tours and concerts for children.

Speaking of animals: Schönbrunn Zoo is amongst the most beautiful zoos in all of Europe. Plenty of offers are specifically directed towards the younger generation. Animal feedings, playgrounds and special events like a summer camps, a carnival party or Christmas tours are only a few examples.
