One Night in Vienna

On route from the U.S. to Greece, we made the most of a 23-hour layover in Vienna. This brief but memorable visit not only introduced us to a beautiful city but also reminded us why we love Europe so much—breathtaking architecture, history at every turn, and delicious food and wine.

During our whirlwind visit to Vienna we had just enough time to…

Tour the Hofburg Imperial Palace, once the Hapsburgs’ winter home, inside and out

Vienna Hofburg Palace Fountain

Take in a Bach and Vivaldi concert at St. Peter’s Cathedral

St Peter's Cathedral Vienna

Stroll the city streets 

Vienna

Dine in the atmospheric cellar restaurant Brezlg’woelb

P1080961 

And catch just enough shuteye before jumping back on an airplane to our next incredible destination: Santorini, Greece.

    I’m so impressed by how much you managed to do! I spent my 4 hour layover in Vienna sleeping in a corner of the airport. 🙂

    Vienna is full of history, (a bit wet and cold when we visited) with fantastic museums and buildings.to explore. We found the public transport very easy to use.
    Also took a day trip in mini bus to Prague, driver then became our guide, glad he took time out to take a nap, before driving back to Vienna. Paul
