I want to speak to you of my fantastic experience in the city of Vienna

The city, constituted mainly by Baroque architecture, to my opinion it is difficult to find a single defect in the organization and in the care of the city indeed. The first photo has been gone off to the Stephansplatz, central (it is reached through the principal course in Vienna) plaza, the course of shops is stormed for making Shopping and a series of restaurants where '' to taste '' flat typical Austrian, I have written to taste among '' because it is a (for me only) fault in Vienna.


To my opinion is one of the places more civilized and well maintained of Europe, has been difficult to find a paper for earth indeed or straight a single hole for road! I have sojourned for 10 days and to visit all the monuments / characteristic museums / structures, have employed around 5 days, there are some difficult places to for instance reach (but it is worth of it) the Castle of Schönbrunn that dista 1h from the center city, it is possible to use the means of transport but suggestion (for the one that active physically) to arrive in bicycle there, there are around 50 stations Rent to Bike in center city and outskirts, the price wanders around the 4e/h.

it is to make the turn on the Danubio in boat (I anticipate you that a whole day you will lose for doing him/it) mandatory. The city follows the style Jugendstil (it is the name that you/they took in Germany and Switzerland the artistic expressions of the Art Nouveau, from the name of a magazine of Monk (Jugend, "Youth", founded in the 1886), it is represented for over the half from green spaces among parks, gardens and woods, that become places of relax and social aggregation. After the serious destructions suffered during the second world war, its building and monumental patrimony has worthily been reconstructed and strengthened.


Places to be visited:

- Donauturm is the situated tower in the park of the danubio (tall 252m) the entrance it costs around 4e (my ticket was reduced because student) arrivals to the tallest plan you can admire the whole city of Vienna, inside the plan it is present a restaurant (expensive), therefore you will have the possibility to eat admiring the panorama (the plan wheel)


- Prater (famous near amusement park the university of Wien)

- the Town hall in Vienna

- The building asburgico 'Albertina' of the XIX century The Albertina is one of the tourist attractions more visited of Vienna today, it counts among 600.000 and 800.000 visitors a year. the Albertina offers a complete panorama of the graphic production from the thin renassaince to today and a lot of its works belong to the undisputed masterpieces of the European art. The collection includes around a million sketches and presses and around 100.000 photos. In 1921 the collation received the name "Albertina", in honor of the archduke Alberto, whose equestrian statue, realized in 1899, it is in the before plaza.

- Museums Quartier

The MuseumsQuartier (District of the Museums), is situated in the district of "Neubau", a stonesthrow from her "Ringstraße" (Burgring) and next to the two museums "Kunsthistorisches Museum" and "Naturhistorisches Museum."


- Castle of Belvedere 

The two castles of the Belvedere, the Belvedere Superiore and the Belvedere Inferiore, connected between them from a long and ample slope turned into garden, you/they were built in the eighteenth century as summer residence of the prince Eugene of Savoia (1663 -1736), that submitted the planning to one of the most important architects of the Baroque one, Johann Lukas von Hildebrandt. The castle has ample gardens and is one of the most beautiful architectural complexes barocco of the world. 

The Belvedere Inferior is to see above all for the luxury of the apartments used by the prince Eugene. Instead the Belvedere Superiore has been used for the more as castle of representation and for the parties of the court.The Room of the Marbles of the Belvedere Superiore has been center of important events: quio, May 15 th 1955, the Austrian government accords have been signed, that threw the bases for the modern one is Austrian. This room offers a splendid view on all Vienna.

- Don't forget the House of Mozart of the '700 (the visit foresees the tourist guide suggestion to do her/it) 

In the period in which Mozart firmly lived in Vienna (from 1781 to the 1791) they count him at least 10-12 residences but all the buildings where he/she lived they are in the meantime disappeared, demolished and reconstructed in other forms or modified in unrecognizable way.In some cases the precise location of the place is not even known. Only one of the buildings have been standing as it were to the epoch of Mozart, that is the Mozarthaus in the Domgasse 5, next to the cathedral of Saint Stephen.
