Oh, the Wonderful Vienna!
If you have already explored the beautiful city of Prague, Vienna is only a hop, a skip, and a jump away. Prague boasts beautiful medieval and picturesque charm, a walkable and charming city centre, dramatic river views, great beer, and friendly locals. Vienna, however, has quite a lot to offer as well! We have asked our local experts from Wolfy’s Adventures for some recommendations for you.
If you are ready to switch out your Crowns for Euros and duck breast with cabbage for wiener schnitzel, you’re good to go. Vienna’s public transportation system is just as reliable and safe as Prague’s, so no adjustments here. You can reach Austria’s capital very easily by train. After breakfast in Prague, you simply get on a train, and you’ll be in Vienna by lunchtime. The main train stations in both Prague and Vienna are located centrally and are very easy to reach by public transportation. All you have to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy a comfortable and scenic ride with an onboard restaurant and free Wi-Fi! Book your tickets either on the Czech website or on the Austrian website.
Once you have arrived in Vienna, you’ll find your hotel, check-in, and hit the town. You will find that Vienna has many fun and unique neighbourhoods to explore, as well as some incredible world-class museums and concert halls. Do not miss out on the charming parks to relax in such as the Stadtpark or Burggarten, stunning architecture to admire, many incredible dishes to try, and so much more! We would also recommend exploring one of Vienna’s many markets (check out Naschmarkt or a much smaller but high-quality market called Kutschkermarkt), especially on a Saturday.
One thing you really shouldn’t miss is enjoying a cup (or two) of coffee in one of Vienna’s traditional coffee houses (check out Café Jelinek, Café Ritter, or Café Sperl. You’ll notice people reading entire newspapers on wooden newspaper sticks while sipping on their coffee for hours. It invites you to slow down and learn to enjoy living in the moment.
So much to see, so little time! Thankfully we have a solution to that problem.
