Top places to see in Vienna
  • Schönbrunn Palace

    An entire day can be devoted to exploring the Schönbrunn Palace, the summer residence for the imperial family. The Palace is popular among tourists due to its lush gardens, impressive zoo, and 1,441 beautiful palace rooms.

  • Hofburg Imperial Palace

    The magnificent Hofburg Palace was home to some of the most  powerful Austrian rulers, including Marie Antoinette. Hofburg is truly spectacular with its national library, treasury, theater, museums, chapels, horse stables, and more.

  • State Opera House

    More composers have studied in Vienna than any other city in the world; for that, Vienna truly deserves the title as the "music capital of the world." The State Opera House is among one of the most beautiful and ornate opera houses. More than 60 operas and ballets perform there.

  • Rathaus

    The Rathaus, or City Hall, was designed by Friedrich von Schmidt in the Gothic style and built between 1872 and 1883. It serves as the seat of both the mayor and city council of the city of Vienna.

Ball is Life

by Paige

Back in High School, my orchestra put on this event called "Swinging in Vienna." It was a formal dance where the orchestra would play waltzes and the jazz band would play swing music. At this time, I had no idea why we named our dance after Vienna. It was not until looking into studying abroad here that I discovered that Vienna is known for having Balls!

THE Original Snowglobe

by Paige

Everywhere I travel, I have always purchased a snowglobe to remember my time. Last January, I did some traveling around Europe and brought home 4 snowglobes. After struggling to get all those home, I decided to tone it back a bit during my study abroad. So far I have only purchased one snowglobe and I could not be happier with the story behind it.

Around the World

by Paige

I come from a very small college where there isn't a lot to do on the weekends. In Vienna, there is no shortage of activites. However after a hard week of courses, sometimes you just want to get away and take a break. One of my favorite things about Vienna, is how central the location is! Traveling and seeing the rest of the world has never been easier! There are so many options and places to see, why not travel why you are in Europe?

A Second Family

by Paige

For me, the scariest part of going abroad or going to college for the first time, is finding out who I will be living with. When I was a freshman, I was terrified of living with another person I didn't know and that fear followed me to Vienna. Right before I arrived, I found out the name of the 5 strangers who I would be sharing an apartment with for the next 5 months. I have been here for 2 months now, and I would not change anything about my living situtaiton.
