Wien The Imperial City, Vienna was the centre of the Habsburg Empire for centuries. This explains its marvelous sights, wide avenues, and imposing parks. The city gave home to such famous artists and composers as Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, or Schiele whose works are sealed and cared after in the museums and concert halls of Vienna. In Vienna you have to start the sightseeing in the Altstadt. Going through the Ring either on foot or by car, which is the most crowded avenue of the city you can marvel at the world famous Opera House and going on to the Maria Theresa square you can find the Museum of Fine Arts right in front of the Natural History Museum. Next to the square you can find the Hofburg Palace in which we can find an exhibition related to Princess Sissy. The palace itself is one of the few renaissance building left in the city in contrast with the gothic style which is mainly represented in Vienna. Heading to the Stephansdom which is the most famous gothic building in Austria you can have a look at the compelling building which was built in the 12th and 13th century. It is considerable renting a car since Vienna is a huge city and you will not be able to explore the whole of it on foot. For children the most interesting part of the city is probably the Prater, which is the amusement park of Vienna. From the Wiener Riesenrad which is a huge ferris wheel you can have a stunning look over the whole city. Renting a car is a great idea if you wish to visit the well-known Palace of Schönnbrunn which was the summer residency of Franz Joseph and also the home of the first-ever zoo of the world. In the area of the palace you can also visit the hedge-labyrinth and the Gloriette from which you can marvel at the amazing panorama of the palace.
