Vienna - Sightseeing Tours and Activities

When traveling to Austria, visitors should not pass up spending a day or two in Vienna, the country’s largest city and its capital. Known for being the birthplace of famous people, including Sigmund Freud, Mozart and Beethoven, this city is rich in culture and heritage. If you have watched performances in London, New York and Sydney, one of the top things to do while visiting this lively city is to watch an opera. You might even be there to catch the performance of an 11-year old British composer in the opera “Cinderella” she had written. Of course, there are other sightseeing tours and activities to try if you want other things to do like going to museums and Imperial Palaces Vienna is also famous for.
