Shopping and Sightseeing

Gustav Klimt’s The Kiss at The Belvedere Palace
Vienna is famed for it’s rich cultural history and many palaces. You must visit at least one of them on your trip. For art lovers I would recommend The Belvedere Palace, it houses the work of Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele, as well as many other early 20th century artists. Alternatively to see the grandeur of Viennese architecture at its best, the Schonbrunn Palace and its spectacular gardens makes for a relaxing and inspiring day out of the city.

Shopping – Vienna
Vienna is not famed as a European shopping destination, but it does have all of the international high street brands such as Zara and H&M. The main shopping streets are on and around Stephan Platz, but there are more off-the-beaten-track niche boutiques and shops.
