The Imperial Grandeur of Vienna

Austria, Spectacular Elegance

Vienna is a city that has given the rest of the world some very precious things: the graceful Viennese waltz, delicate pastries, and a few great classical composers but also provided historical personalities and moments. It is a city that represents refinement and culture to visitors.

The Wiener Rathaus serves as Vienna's town hall, as well as the seat of government for the State of Vienna. The Gothic-style building features the Rathausmann that sits on top of the tower and is a symbol of Vienna.

Graben is one of the most famous streets in central Vienna. The word Graben means "trench" in German, and dates back to an old Roman encampment in the Austrian capital.

St. Stephen's Cathedral is the home church for the Catholic archbishop in Vienna. The church was destroyed in World War II but was rebuilt in seven years, with worship services still held daily. The cathedral, one of the city's most important landmarks, reaches high into the Viennese skyline.

The Burggarten is a once-royal garden that is a bit of England in Vienna, as it is patterned after English gardens. The Burggarten was the court garden for the Hapsburg rulers.

The Belvedere is an integral part of Vienna's historic scene dating back to the late 17th century. It consists of the Baroque palaces, the Lower and Upper Belvedere; palace stables and the Orangery.

The Hofburg Imperial Palace has played an integral part of the Austrian government scene since it was built in the 13th century. It has been home to some of Europe's most powerful royalty over the centuries. Today it is a museum and home to the president of Austria.

The 1,441 room Schonbrunn Palace, comparable in grandeur to Versailles, is one of the major tourist attractions in Vienna. The Palace Park offers a lot of attractions, such as the Privy Garden, the oldest zoo in the world, a maze and labyrinth, and the Gloriette, a marble summerhouse.
