The capital of Austria, Vienna is a classical experience for any traveler in Europe. Vienna swirls with Austrian balls, romance, orchestral grandeur, and thick with history. Museums and art galleries nestle against parks, concert halls, and marble statues. Hotels in Vienna themselves form a part of the city's beauty, with refined Baroque architecture, and palatial 5 star hotels. With a youthful European energy, Vienna hotels likewise include family-run inns and hostels scattered throughout the city.
The Vienna International Center is the city's most recognizable convention and office complex, as it is home to many international organizations, including branches of the United Nations.
Visitors can leave their Vienna hotels for an evening of exploring the Viennese cuisine at the Baroque courtyard Hollmann Salon, Middle Eastern cuisine at Maschu Maschu, or Japanese cuisine at Tenmaya, or simply a cup of Viennese coffee at Pruckel, Kleines Cafe, or Hawelka.
The Inner Stadt is Vienna's premier tourist district, where you can discover art by Raphael and Titian at the Museum of Fine Arts, or explore the halls of the Hofburg Palace.
Meinl am Graben in the Inner Stadt is highly recommended for delicatessen shopping, with a wine selection including 1961 vintage Bordeaux, over 400 cheeses, chocolate originating from Tuscany to Ghana, and an incredible variety of teas.
Vienna's pride in sport lies partially in the traditional roots of Lipizzaner horse dressage at the Spanish Riding School, where the public can watch performances and training.
