Vienna

City of Dreams

The cultural, economic, and political center of the country, Vienna has developed from its early Celtic and Roman roots into a medieval and Baroque city, with an old town that was designated a World Heritage Site in 2001.
Kids will enjoy Schönbrunn Zoo and Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien. There's still lots to do: make a trip to St. Stephen's Cathedral, get a new perspective on nature at Natural History Museum (Naturhistorisches Museum), explore the galleries of Belvedere Palace, and examine the collection at Sisi Museum.
