    1. There are many interesting places in Vienna. I found out, after visiting the city, about an area with coloured houses – so yes, I’ll go back too one day 🙂

  1. Great list. Vienna is one of my all time favorite cities. my favorite spot is the Augustinerkirche…i just love that sepulchre. Could gaze at it for eternity.

  2. I am not a major Vienna fan, I really like Budapest.
    But I have been two times. I like Prater for its ferries wheel and I like Schonnbrun gardens for its Gloriette. Oh and the Technology Museum. We had sooooo much fun.
