4. Experience the Viennese coffee house culture. Order a cup of coffee at one of the many coffee houses in the city some of which date back to hundreds of years. Sample some of the delicious sweets like cakes and pastries from one of the bakeries. Try not to miss out on having a slice of Sacher Torte while in the city.

5. Take a stroll at Stadtpark and enjoy the music-themed landmarks and attractions including the statue of Johann Strauss and the busts of some of Austria’s musical legends. And if you are lucky, you can catch a live music performance at the park.
