Top 3 things you should see in Vienna, Austria

  1. Naschmarkt. A huge outdoor market filled with vintage clothing, crafts, international food stalls etc. It’s been going since the 16th century! It took me about 45 minutes from beginning to end to see everything…I was walking pretty slowly just admiring everything! The whole market is about 1.5 km. The craft stalls in particular are perfect for souvenirs.

2. The Hofburg. The former imperial palace of the Habsburg dynasty rulers. Now, it’s the official residence and workplace of the President of Austria. The palace was absolutely stunning. I only admired the exterior, I saw you could do a guided tour of a small section of the palace but at quite a high cost. Depending on what kind of budget you’re on, I’m sure the guided tour would be worth doing. I learned that the oldest part of the palace is the Swiss Wing, dating back to the 13th century.

3. Hotel Sacher. Home to the famous Sacher-Torte! If you’re a ‘foodie’ then this one’s for you. Indulge in a slice of ‘The Original Sacher-Torte’ in the hotel’s luxury café and gift shop. For those of you who have never heard of the Sacher-Torte, it was invented in the early 1800s and they are still using the original recipe. A decadent chocolate cake sandwiched together with apricot jam and topped with chocolate frosting.
