Vienna is a very diverse city. The old palaces have been transformed into great museums where you can visit one afternoon with so much to view and you'll find plenty of cafes.
The ‘Ringstrasse’, where the famous trams circle around the centre and pass all the sights is the place to be. Visit the State Opera, the Imperial Palace, City Hall and the Votive Church. See museums such as the Natural History Museum (dinosaurs!), The Museum of Fine Arts and the complete Museum quarter. Then there's the vibrant and young Vienna with trendy cafes and comic specialty shops.
Get the best of both worlds; Vienna is perfect to discover from a campsite along the Danube. Here combine a trip with a good dose of nature, ideal with kids. Take a canoe trip through Europe's largest contiguous floodplain forests or take a dip in Lake Aubad, complete with lawns, beach and a 45 m long water slide. See Tullin which features a beautiful restored market square full of terraces!
