Vienna (Austria) ... States of Austria. Vienna is Austria's primate city; with a population of about 1.7 million (2.2 million within the metropolitan area), and is by far the largest city in Austria as well as its cultural, economic and political centre. Vienna lies in the south-eastern corner of Central Europe and is close to the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary. In 2001, the city centre was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site."
Newest Review: ... high-risk advantages in allowing the pursuit of liberal intellectualism with minimal censorship. This benevolent authoritarianism, combined with the indulgent lifestyle enjoyed by the bourgeoisie in the coffeehouses and taverns, ensured that the maxim coined by Karl Marx - that philosophers have sought to interpret the world when the point is to change it - bypassed the Viennese, whose ... more

To the casual observer, Vienna is a city abundant with beauty, elegance and culture. Typical of its collective humour - known as "Schmaeh" - the Viennese smirks mischievously with a twinkle in his eye as he indulges in the sensual pleasures of food, music and flirtation, conscious of the kitsch but indulgent in it for the sake of theatre. The summers are mellow and languorous; afternoons sodden with local white wine, and a tendency for people to sink comfortably into the moment, reflecting passively on the past and thinking not of the future and its associated uncertainties. The winters are cosy and homely despite the wind that blows in off the Hungarian ... Read the complete review

I really like Vienna, I lived there for 6 months whilst at university and I've been back since on a work trip and look forward to going there again in the future. Vienna is about a 2 hour flight from London so perfect for a weekend break. It can be pretty hot in the summer and pretty cold in the winter so unless you don't mind this I'd recomment spring or autumn for a temperate visit. Vienna is a beautiful city with lovely architecture, great cakes shops, and plenty of cultural sights to kep you interested such as museums and places of interest. The places I would recomment to visit (in no particular order) are; 1. Stephansdom ... Read the complete review

I visited Vienna in April 2009. I arrived in Vienna having flown into Bratislava (Slovakia) and taking the train between the two cities. I had spent three days in Bratislava before taking the train over to Vienna. No budget airlines currently fly to Vienna airport and there are few cheap options to fly directly into Vienna. Based on my experience, I would certainly recommend using Bratislava airport and perhaps spending a day in Bratislava before going through to Vienna. Bratislava and Vienna are the two closest capital cities in the world being only 70 kilometers apart and the train journey across is both rapid (60 minutes) and cheap (9 Euros). On flying ...

Big Brother, his wife, a friend and I had a city break this last weekend in Vienna. It all started on a very exciting note when we nearly landed on another plane on the runway! It was quite fun, in retrospect (of course!), because we went from descending quite fast and steeply, to suddenly and immediately accelerating and climbing – it made me realise again that those engines are amazing things, packed with more power than one expects, and really rather impressive when the pilot has to give it stick! But, not an experience I would choose to repeat. We arrived in Vienna quite late (due to heightened security measures at the airports and a late Buzz plane) ... Read the complete review

This was one of the infamous literary salons of the late 19th and early 20th Centuries, and was reknowned for being filled with the leading luminaries of the day. The original Griensteidl closed in 1907 under a cloud, and the present day Griensteidl opened in 1990. Unfortunately it now has a very clinical air to the place, and whilst it is comfortable and a good place to while away an hour or two over a couple of expensive coffees, there is very little atmosphere to speak of now. The service is the usual for Vienna - slighty begruding, and with the waiters expecting a tip. Read the complete review
