Palaces, museums and café cultureThe list of must-sees in Vienna can feel never-ending: the Schönbrunn and Hofberg palaces are essential sights, but there's also the Ringstrasse, the contemporary art museums in the MuseumsQuartier and the wealth of classical music performances on offer throughout the year at the Musikverein and Vienna State Opera. Be sure to book ahead to see the Lipizzaner stallions at the Spanish Riding school too, and the Vienna Boys Choir if they're in town. Vienna has a long history of café culture, too, so when you've had enough sight-seeing there's sure to be an establishment nearby where you can linger over excellent coffee and pastries.
