Vienna ©
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 Schonbrunn Palace and Schönbrunn Zoo. There's lots more to do: explore the world behind art at Belvedere Palace, take a stroll through Historic Center of Vienna, get in on the family fun at Prater, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Vienna Naschmarkt.

To find reviews, maps, photos, and other tourist information, read our Vienna trip itinerary app.

Houston, USA to Vienna is an approximately 16- hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train. You'll lose 7 hours traveling from Houston to Vienna due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Houston in July, expect Vienna to be little chillier, temps between 82°F and 61°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 7th (Tue) early enough to travel to Salzburg.

Surrounded by mountain ranges and boasting a well-preserved city center, Salzburg melds culture and history.
Bring the kids along to Mirabell Palace and Salzburg Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Salzburg: Soll (Pfarramt Soll & Hexenwasser). There's still lots to do: take some stellar pictures from Fortress Hohensalzburg Castle, get engrossed in the history at Mozarts Geburtshaus, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Untersberg, and contemplate the long history of Mozart Residence (Mozart Wohnhaus).
