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.

    We spent the afternoon at Rathaus at the Christmas Market for a couple of hours. So many great crafts and food to choose from. Don't forget to get a picture of the water pump in the center of the city.

    Excellent day to spend with your family and not only. You need full day and they have some nice restaurants there for lunch.

    One of the most beautiful christmas market in Wien it’s located here. The place it’s impresive,
    with a lot of stands offering Christmas products, hot punch and gingerbread. Directly in front of the illuminated town hall you can also find the approx. 30 m high festively decorated Christmas tree. The trees in the Rathauspark are also decorated and glowing in the dark. Especially the small children will like a lot the different Christmas attractions in the park.

    The Stephansplatz is definitely the heart of the city.
    You'll find Vienna's no 1 attraction, the Stephansdom (cathedral) here as well.
    My advise: Sit down on one of the nearby terraces, have a drink and enjoy the local strett life.
    We were lucky to attend the procession on the second Sunday in September during our visit.

    This is a very quaint district which houses many of the museums in Vienna and one which is defiantly well worth a visit.

    After the Schonbrun Palace Tour we visited the gardens located at the rear.

    Entry is free however attractions such as Privy Garden, the Orangery Garden , Maze Zoo, Palm House and the Desert House require tickets.

    The gardens are manicured and spectacular with water features and lots of seating areas for you to relax and enjoy the view.

    This is a very interesting house located in the outskirts of Vienna. The architecture is quite unique.

    Good but be wary of prices as its easy to spend! We loved the little archery games; the men in charge were friendly. We went on a few rides and the smallness of them made it more fun as its very condensed to its spot so they fit in a lot of turns and twists. The skull rock pirate ride was actually quite scary even though it has not been advertised as a horror and was shown to be a family ride when a few of the animatronics were garish and jumpy. Good selection of fun houses and little eats.

    This is inefficient way to get around town, and you can meet many locals and experience life as a local.

    A very interesting museum that is not much advertised in the area of Schönbrunn Palace.
    Four floors full of interesting exhibitions and activities for children and adults. We enjoy a lot our time and we were not bored spending around three hours exploring all activities.
    Recommended to visit.

    We went on a Saturday, and it was absolutely ram-packed. If you like the vibe of tons of people around you, then it’s great, but really difficult to take anything in or have time to enjoy it, which is a shame, because the surroundings are truly magnificent. There's a little light-trail, couple of rides, and ice-skating on the side as well. Went again on a Monday and it was much less packed and nicer. Tons of stalls, and like other Viennese market, mulled wine is served in a mug you have to return (which is a positive in my eyes!)

    This is one of my favorite parts of Vienna. You can very easily take the metro then connect to the 38 tram. It is a pleasant ride out to Grinzing. Exit and just start walking. You'll walk through beautiful vineyards, it is amazing this is part of one of the world's best cities.

    It's a great but easy walk to the top, and if you're there late in the day or on a weekend, you can grab a glass of wine at a local heriguer out in the vines.

    We did this yesterday in October, quiet with leaves changing. Stunning. A great thing to do when you are in Vienna.
