The setting for the aquarium being in the old FLAK tower was a fascinating piece of history for the adults to experience while the kids enjoyed the aquarium. The piece of advice about taking the elevator straight to the top to start the experience was...More

remaining World War II defense towers, and topped with
a rooftop bar that offers stunning views over Vienna
