On a not so sunny day, we decided to come take a look. We didn't think it would be much different to ours here in London, but I have to say it was better. The building was beautiful and the displays where really good. We were going to have a snack in the café but it was very expensive, so... More

We were impressed by the Hallstatt collections in particular. The dinosaurs were well presented and the famous Venus of Willendorf is a must-see.

The Natural History Museum in Vienna is a must. You have to visit this museum, first because of the location which is impressive. But also the collections of minerals, animals etc is impressive. It was a good choice to visit that museum, and absolutely no loss of time.

A great way to spend a rainy day. Artefacts from all over the world not just Austria. Space, precious stones and animals of very type all under one roof, you would need two days to take it all in.

You could spend several days at this wonderful museum. Every type of mineral from all over the world is displayed here. Animals, dinosaurs, anthropology, sea creatures, evolution, fossils...etc. Everything is well displayed. We really enjoyed this museum and were happy that we saw it. There are so many museums in Vienna, but this one is a must. A local told... More

At a €10 entry fee, this museum is well worth visiting. Best starting on the top floor and working downwards. Every type and breed of animal, fish, bird and insect - in amazing condition for their age - is exhibited. I didn't realise rocks were so interesting too, tons of them! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars... More

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
