Vienna Old Town - Vienna


Vienna’s Old Town is like a magnificent open air museum, and as you explore it, you will understand why it is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Originally, the Old Town was divided into four quarters, which where named after the great gates of the city: the Stubenviertel in the north east, the Kärnterviertel in the south east, the Widmerviertel in the south west and the Schottenviertel in the north west. The historic centre of Vienna is a real mix of heritages. The former capital of the Austro-Hungarian Empire is influenced by three time periods: The Middle Ages, represented by the Gothic St Stephen Cathedral- the Baroque, represented by the magnificent Hofburg with its beautiful domes, and Gründerzeit, which can be seen in the Ringstraβe, with splendid buildings such as the Opera and the Kunsthistorisches Museum. The many churches and palaces give visitors a sense of what life was like during the Imperial era. If you want to feel like a royal, we suggest that you take a tour of the shops which used to be suppliers to the Imperial Courts, the Kuk Hoflieferanten.
