Willflies, Willflies. The Upper Palace of Belvedere houses the largest collection of works by Gustav Klimt including his famous painting The Kiss. Wandering through impressive gardens and reflecting ponds, you come to Lower Belvedere that served as a residential palace. You can hardly claim you’ve been to Vienna without tasting the original Sacher-Torte. The best one can be ordered in Café Sacher next to Vienna State Opera house. The cake is still made using the original recipe from 1832 and really pleases your taste. The observation terrace of Donauturm rises 155 meters above the city skyline and offers great views from the northern bank of the Danube. The restaurant at the top, slowly rotating around its axis, invites visitors for the highest-altitude dinner in Vienna.

Playful Colours

Hundertwasserhaus

Originality is the right word to describe the house designed by F. Hundertwasser and inspired by Gaudi’s style. It’s almost impossible to find long straight lines on the outside. The building is not open to the public but you can visit the Village built in the same style.

Summer Residence

Schloss Schönbrunn

The Palace served as the summer residence of Habsburg rulers and nowadays is the most popular tourist attraction in Vienna. The entire complex has well over a thousand rooms and together with large gardens and other smaller sites is part of the UNESCO list.
