Historic Center of Vienna
#1 of 487 Sights & Landmarks in Vienna
... Central (the best!) Dinner: Do & Co (fabulous), Hotel Ambassador (top floor terrace dining, delicious, lovely view of a platz and fountain), Hotel Sacher (4+ course, elegant dining with Austrian wine pairing).
What with all the well-preserved architecture, monuments, landmarks, thoughtful public spaces, buzz...it is definitely a vibrant hub of art, culture, street cafes, kiosks and other necessary facilities.
