Discovering Vienna !

We spend 4 nights in Vienna and fell in love with the style, architecture and hidden places!  We met some interesting guides and local people that shared hidden insights.  Sadly Serge from Discovering Destinations sprained his ankle which made him bed ridden one entire day.  Despite the misfortunate event, we enjoyed our stay and maximized our Discovering Vienna !  Check out some interesting sights below !

Churches

* St Stephen's Cathedral for the architecture enthusiasts.
* Karlskirche is a great discovery inside and out.

Palaces

* The Belvedere Palace for the gardens and inside if time permits
* The famous and classic Schönbrunn Palace !

Other cool places !

* Start with a FreeWalking tour - Good Vienna Tours.
* Nice any day of the week is the Naschmarkt (street market)
* If you like cool and different, check out - Hundertwasserhaus !
* Try going through Heldenplatz when visiting the MuseumQuartier.

Also, keep an eye on our growing picture library ?
