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.

    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!

    Family of four (Mom, Dad, two 20something sons); we played "Going Underground" in English. It was fun and challenging - we were able to stick our heads together & figure out most of the puzzles/tasks without hints. My son, who has done about a dozen different escape rooms in different cities (this was the first for the rest of the family), said that this was the most elaborate room, in terms of set design and props, that he'd ever done. Good time was had by all.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    We came especially to see this pair of lovely spiral staircase with a pretty fountain in the middle. Tranquil and lovely stop. There are benches for sitting and resting along the staircase. Worth a photo stop.

    Me and girlfriend booked the Dragon Cave escape room and we loved it! There were so many different puzzles and riddles throughout the game. The game is 70 mins (which is needed for 2 people). Would highly recommend this escape room to anybody looking to do one in Vienna.

    Very interesting museum about the history of the lives of every day ordinary Austrians, with some bits about refugees thrown in as well. I found the museum to be fascinating, but the labelling and explanations could be a bit more detailed. I understand German, so reading the German signs was not a problem for me - however, it is a bit of a guessing game to work out which description belongs to which artefact, as the items are not very well labelled. Entry is free for Erste Bank customers, by the way.

    Wandering around the wonderful Alsergrund neighbouring pub and bar hopping we chanced upon this beautiful church that certainly catches your attention.
    The church looks amazing, its twin towers very evocative, never ventured into the church but was suitably impressed with the exterior.
    This church is significant in that on the 29 March 1827 the funeral service for composer Ludwig Van Beethoven was held here ,the church makes for some great photographic opportunities and if your in this part of town most definitely well worth checking out if your in the area.

    Wolfi was an amazing tour guide to some really great spots that we would very have thought to try. This really made Vienna much less intimidating a place to get to know.
