    The Viennas Boys Choir, the Spanish Riding School, classical concent at Schonbrunn Palace for example along with a self guided tour and a meal or just tour the castle & gardens. Schonbrunn Palace also has a zoo with one of its exhibits being pandas, a maze, a carriage display & a palm house. Belvedere Palace which displays art.

    There is a stunning cathedral in the centrre of Vienna called the Stephendom, think its in Gothic style. Tour of the opera house which is quite interesting because they show you how the sets work back stage & a hop on hop off tour of Vienna. Walk through Imperial Vienna, shop, enjoy Viennese cafe life, Boat trip on the Danube.

    For 3 days I'd focus on the city however for day trips outside Vienna you could go into the Wachau valley travelling west by the Danube to the town of Krims & Monastery of Melk which has a really stunning church.

    Or tour the Vienna Woods & former gymsum mine. During WW2 the Nazis started using this place in 1944 to try & build a one man jet aircraft atleast the fuselages were assembled here by unfortunate prisoners from Mathausen Concentration Camp. However it never came to fruition since it was beset by all kinds of problems & then the war ended. The guide said that the Germans were the first ones to build a jet plane i.e. the Messersmith though I dont know if this was true. We then had a magical trip by boat through underwater caverns. over 9 years ago

    And don't forget the Kaisergruft where all the emperorso and their families rest. Hotel Sacher is a nice coffee house (try Sachertorte, Vienna's national desert, it's a chocolate cake). over 9 years ago

    As mentioned in other replies, Stephensdom was one of my favorites. If you aren't the squeamish type and arrive at the right time they offer tours that go down through the catacombs. Great history, spooky atmosphere. As for signature items to take home, try going to a wine or liquor shop and asking for ice wine. It's a desert wine that is made while the grapes are frozen. You'll see it written as Eiswein. Ask for a local bottle and enjoy a sweet drink after dinner. Also the old town area is sooo beautiful at night. I walked it with one other woman and never felt unsafe. Seeing everything lit up at night was the highlight of my trip. over 9 years ago

    the Schonbrun Palace (fantastic if you like art filled,historic things) and Lippanzaner Horses (love horses doing anything). But we have been there 2 times before - last time booked this tour http://www.viennasightseeing.at/en/hop-on-hop-off/hop-on-hop-off-red-line/.With 2 days you can still see most of city AND these things too. Just pick what appeals to YOU and try to fit in the rest .Save other things for NEXT TIME. Only way to think about great cities.No way to see it ALL.PS . about 5 years ago
