City of Dreams
The cultural, economic, and political center of the country, Vienna has developed from its early Celtic and Roman roots into a medieval and Baroque city, with an old town that was designated a World Heritage Site in 2001.You'll discover tucked-away gems like Melk Abbey and Wachau Valley. Visiting Nationalpark Thayatal and Ötscherbach will get you outdoors. Change things up with these side-trips from Vienna: Steinwandklamm (in Muggendorf), Domane Wachau (in Durnstein) and Johannesbachklamm (in Wurflach). There's still lots to do: head outdoors with Donauinsel.
