Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Unfortunately, we did not enter the church due to ongoing maintenance and part of the exterior was shrouded in scaffolding, with a major part of the rest of the structure supporting a major advertisement for Breitling (since when have churches become advertising billboards?). But still easy to appreciate the beauty of the building. The church was built following the attempted assassination of Emperor Franz Joseph in 1853. At the time, the Emperor's brother Archduke Ferdinand Maximilian inaugurated a campaign to create a church to thank God for saving the Emperor's life. The church was dedicated in 1879.

    With respect Katarlina 72 you are wrong. I remember not so long ago seeing consecutive evening performances of The Marriage of Figaro at the Volksoper and the Staatsoper and rated them 9 and 4 out of ten respectively. The Volksoper had a young(ish) and vibrant cast who gave it so much that you forgave the occasional missed note while the cast at the Staatsoper including three well regarded international stars were uninspired as they had done it all many times before and were clearly Thinking -of-the money-and -Singing. The Staatsoper may have the cache but the Volksoper can also inspire, particularly the "country bumpkins" who Kararina seems to despise so much and are clearly not worthy of experiencing great music. End of rant. I am, by the way a retired music critic of an English national newspaper. On a recent visit I saw a very good productiion at the Volksoper and an average one at the Statsoper. Go figureas our American cousins say.

    The Sigmund Freud museum was really good. While Freud’s furniture was moved to London when he fled the nazis the museum does a great job of showing what each room looked like when he lived there. Lots of exhibits documenting he is life and academic work. Small light shop, just be aware of museum hours.

    If you like Hundertwasser you have to go there. Very well to travel to by U1. It is typical Hundertwasser euphoria that it gives you. Like the wonderful buildings he designed in Kansai, Japan colse to the airport.
    It would be better if Tripadvisor called it Hunderwasser Heating plant.
    Your children will like it, too.
    You only can look at it from the outside.

    Even though the Liechtenstein Palace can only be visited through tours, it is well worth the trouble to try and book one. This Palace is more than a museum, it is a building that hosts various events. The first thing to impress as you enter the building is the Royal carriage once used to taxi the Royal familly around. Next is the grand staircase with its decorated ceiling where it is almost impossible to walk up and down and gaze at the ceiling at the same time. Huge fresques and paintings to feast the eye. The Palace is a look back in time.

    We did the Tesla escape room and it was so fun. Just the right amount of creepiness and difficulty. Andreas was also very helpful and supportive. Would totally recommend!

    Sounds like there has been a lot of work on the exhibition since previous reviews. The whole of the ground floor was open & all of the exhibitions had both German & English signs so was very easy to understand. Not for the faint hearted, read up on what you are visiting. I found it very interesting, would recommend.

    We found it easy to find, on foot & following Google maps. I can see why people may have struggled to find it if in a car.

    Staff very friendly. Free lockers to leave your bags.

    Not sure if they are renovating the rest of the building, would have been good to see the other floors.

    The Viktor Frankl Center gives one a clear and loving sense of who Viktor Frankl was and why his work matters so deeply. If you wonder what the meaning of your life is and how to live responsibly and richly -- that is, if you're a human being -- you should spend a few hours at the Center.

    We fell upon this historical tourist attraction whilst visiting Schonbrunn Palace by accident. Vienna's largest secular Baroque Hall. The Garden Palace and the City Palace are still owned privately by the Liechtenstein princely family. Deeply rooted in Vienna's history for over 300years, the palaces are noted for their superb state of restoration, original interiors and their stunning harmony of nature, architecture and Master pieces of Art History. There has been an extensive programme of restoration to reveal it's former glory. In the Palace there is a selection of Masterpieces of the private Art collection of Prince Von under zu Liechtenstein from the early Renaissance to the high Baroque ers. They may be viewed as part of a pre-booked guided tour. The
    collections of the Prince contain major works of European Art spanning five centuries and are among the most important private collections in the world.
    The decoration of the pillars, ceilings, chandeliers are elegant, detailed and absolutely paradise. The lighting has been specifically designed with Led lights discreetly fitted into Chandeliers replacing the candlelight of bygone ages.
    Tours are available for private, small / large groups, part of events to see the Princely Collections. It is worth a visit as it appears from speaking to the locals it is not a well known tourist attraction.
    To visit take the metro U2 or U4 alight at Rossauerlande continue for 600mtrs on foot.
    By Bus 40A alight at Bauernfeld plate. Tram Line D alight at Senegalese or Bauernfeldplatz.

    You will particularly enjoy this visit if you are interested in two things: 1. Anatomy 2. Kaiser Josef II. As scientific tools, the waxworks must have been state of the art for their day, and are still deeply impressive. Indeed, as artworks alone, they are worth viewing, although be prepared to be slightly disturbed. As an insight into the late 18th century reforming zeal of Kaiser Josef II they are also illuminating - his surgeons needed to have the best of scientific knowledge to be at the forefront of the brave new Enlightenment world.

    I watched Gary Numan here in February 2014. Its quite a strange/interesting place with the venue sitting off a courtyard in the WUK. The only thing I didnt like was the fact that the door staff didnt respect the VIP tickets by allowing them entry first, as promised by the ticket. Turned out to be a mad rush to get to the stage first. Overall, the venue is good with a large bar area and reasonable prices. they handled a large crowd well and the concert was brilliant. some nice coffe shops nearby too.

    A really nice palace, with great free gardens worth visiting! At the end of the garden, you'll find a nice cherry tree, don't miss it!

    We visited the Altes AKH during December for the Christmas market. The ambiance was enchanting with lights strung from tree to tree and nicely decorated wooden stalls but the food was not appealing.

    The items offered for sale seemed to be the same items that you see repeated in many of the markets.

    It is worth strolling through but I recommend eating elsewhere.

    This museum is not a must-see in Vienna if you have just 1-2 days, but if you have plenty of time it does worth a short visit. Old and newer coins and banknotes, some history, Euros from all around the EU, some interactive displays with quiz and a big gold bar... Interesting. It took me only 15-20 minutes and it is completely free.
