Vienna Top 10 Attractions

Imperial Treasury

Vienna was originally a Celtic settlement, founded in 500BC and later played a part in defending the Roman empire from Germanic Barbarians.
Later, the city became the residence of the Habsburg dynasty - the most powerful family in Europe - and grew further to become the capital of the Holy Roman Empire. During this period in the middle ages, Vienna was the European cultural center for music, arts, science and fine cuisine.
When capital of the Austria-Hungary empire in the late 1800s/early 1900s, the population was actually higher than today at around 2 million people.
Vienna was once a walled city, but in the 1800s the wall was removed to allow the city to expand. Where the wall once stood is now the famous "Ringstrasse" or "Ring Street" - a wide boulevard which surrounds the old city. Most of the important buildings in Vienna lie along this circular ring road.

Vienna is situated in the far east of Austria, and is only 40km from Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia. It has a temperate climate with warm summers and cold winters. The average high temperature in summer is around 25 degree's, however in winter it can often stay around freezing for extended periods


Wien is also about food, wine and beer
