  • 3 Days: Essential Vienna-LP

    3 Days: Essential Vienna

    Vienna has hundreds of museums and monuments, and it’s impossible to see more than a fraction during a single visit. We instead recommend having Indagare arrange a customized itinerary the features a few well-chosen sights to explore in depth instead of cramming numerous sights into a too-short visit.

    • Day 1: Historic Vienna

      Upon arrival in Vienna, take a stroll up Kärntner Strasse, home to such boutiques as Lobmeyer and renowned Pâtisserie Demel. Go for lunch at the old-world Hotel Sacher, then spend the afternoon at the Albertina museum, which is housed in a meticulously restored 17th-century palace. Have a Viennese coffee and pastry at one of the city’s most venerable Kaffeehäuser (cafés).

    • Day 2: Imperial Vienna

      This morning, visit the Imperial Palace with a guide who can put its incredible history into context. In the afternoon, head to the Museumsquarter, which is made up of several museums but the one not to miss is the Leopold Museum, home to works by Egon Schiele and Gustav Klimt. Afterwards, explore the area around the Naschmarkt (Vienna’s largest outdoor market).

    • Day 3: Schönbrunn Palace

      Twenty minutes outside the city by taxi sits the royal family’s summer residence, Schönbrunn Palace, where you should tour with a guide. In the afternoon, visit the Belvedere Castle, home of Klimt’s The Kiss. Design buffs might prefer to see the Museum of Applied Arts, with a fantastic collection of Wiener Werkstätte, Art Nouveau and Biedermeier.

Indagare's Amelia Osborne Scott
“The way in which the former empire’s history is celebrated is particularly interesting right now, when city dwellers are honoring their past in a distinctly thoughtful, contemporary fashion: Viennese creatives are remembering their imperial past by embracing those same traditions but with their own modern spin. As a result, Austria’s capital is undergoing a demure cultural revolution, as befits the nature of the city.”
