Overview

Delving into the elegant metropolis on the River Danube, this guide portrays Vienna, a city which fuses a glorious past and vibrant present to affect a fascinating architectural union—from the splendid baroque of the Hofburg and Belvedere to the stylish Jugendstil and colorful madness of its city stations and Hundertwasserhaus. Gothic meets the contemporary in these images, where the cathedral is reflected in the glass facade of the Haas-Haus. Countless museums are explored, packed with artistic gems and rare curiosities, and the city’s unique character—and that of the Viennese—is tangible in its many coffee houses and traditional wine taverns.
