The Imperial City

The vibe of Vienna feels like it was the head of the powerful Austrian empire.  The buildings are massive, grand, and well kept.  The city has great universities, museums, and culture.  Make sure to try Austrian Rieslings, which tend to be dry.

Museums

The museums in Vienna seem endless, yet all are impressive and worthwhile.  We spent most of our time in Vienna in museums ranging from classical and modern art, sculptures, and jewels.  Not only do the museums have fantastic exhibits, but the buildings themselves make the visit worth it.  The most memorable part of the museums was being able to see The Kiss at the Belvedere museum.

Food

We were able to eat at some local restaurants that we stumbled upon while we were in Vienna.  The menus were in Austrian, so we would completely rely on the waiter/waitress or our best educated guess when ordering.  It always worked out for us, and we got to have some delicious food in unique, local restaurants.
