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.

Some advice I have for future students, travel often and when IES Abroad offers their field trips, jump on board!
