Well, here are some wonderful suggestions!

A Day in Vienna: What You Can Do

 

Visit the Historic Palaces of Vienna

When thinking of Vienna, it's the stunning palaces and classic architecture that always come to mind. Such beautiful buildings and landmarks are a dime a dozen here. There are so many that you can actually spend an entire day just visiting them, basking in their opulent glory and nostalgic maximalism. And these places are so vast, you'll probably only be able to fit a handful in a day. If that's the case make sure you fit in Schönbrun, Hofburg, and Belvedere palaces—all are remnants of Austria's regal past. It also helps that the garden grounds here are such sights to see!

Learn About the Lipizzaner Stallions

It's no secret that Vienna's fairytale-like charm is what draws many people into the city. And there's a place where that charm is taken up a notch: The Spanish Riding School. Watch as the beautiful Lipizzaner stallions show off their graceful forms and adorable skills in an equestrian show like no other. While Vienna no longer has horse-drawn carriages on the streets, this place brings you back to a time when that was the norm. Beyond the grand hall where the show takes place, there are countless exhibits and galleries in the school that offer more info on these beautiful and intelligent creatures.

Explore Vienna's MuseumsQuartier

Though Vienna boasts a lot of beautiful neighborhoods, there's one district within the city that's more of a landmark itself than an actual community. This is the MuseumsQuartier—a collection palatial galleries that show and chronicle the very best of Austrian artistry. The Leopold Museum, for instance, houses Viennese artworks that show the evolution of art in the Austrian capital, ranging from its classical years to the Art Nouveau period and more. The Architekturzentrum Wien, on the other hand, is solely devoted to contemporary architecture. a palette cleanser of sorts from the city's overall classic style.
