Overview

Vienna, the capital of Austria

Vienna is the capital city of Austria and home to approximately 1,6 million inhabitants. Vienna is the seat of many multinationals and is becoming more and more important as a centre for trade between Western and Eastern Europe.

About Austria


There are numerous things to be done and to visit once in Vienna. Don’t miss the following landmarks: Saint Stephan’s cathedral, Austria’s most important building in Gothic Style; Burgtheater, the flagship of the 50 Viennese theatres and the oldest and one of the most influential theatres in the dramatic arts of the German speaking countries; the City Hall, the most important building in neo-Gothic style in the city; and the Imperial Palace, residence of the Habsburg emperors until 1918 and today its chapel is where the Vienna Boys’ Choir sings mass on Sundays and religious holidays.

When in Vienna it is a must to visit a typical Viennese coffeehouse. Relax and try a Melange (coffee with frothy milk) with a sweet flaky pastry with apples.

    Night Train to Zurich  |
    "It was a very good experience travelling by the night train from the Vienna to Zurich. The night train started at very late hours around 11.45 pm and we have to wait for it in the train station for a few hours as it was pretty cold at winter now. The train looked a bit old and the the 2 pax sleepers rooms we booked was small. We have 2 big luggages and that already take up most of the space beside the bed and hardly can find any other space. Luckily my husband and I were not fat, we are able to fit into the 2 small beds, 1 in the upper and the other in the lower decker. There is a small basin in the room and it looked old too. By the next morning when we reach Zurich, the scenery outside the train refreshed us a lot. A light breadfast was served to us from the train crew and his look was serious and never smile. I think if the train crew could be a little bit friendly and that could make us feel happier a little. Overall, the night train is not as comfortable as the trains we travelled in the day time. "

    Night train travel |
    "We travelled on EN236 from Venice to Vienna. The accommodation was comfortable for sitting posture. But one can hardly sleep by sliding the chair if the compartment has all the six occupants present. In the peak tourist season I would advise a sleeper accommodation. The train operated on time. "
