Palace
“"Schönbrunn Palace was the main summer residence of the Habsburg rulers, located in Hietzing, Vienna. The 1,441-room Rococo palace is one of the most important architectural, cultural, and historic monuments in the country. Since the mid-1950s it has been a major tourist attraction." (Source: Wikipedia) Honestly even if you don't feel like visiting another museum, just going there and have walk around in the gardens on a sunny day is lovely way to spend your time. I highly recommend to go there with children, they get to dress up as knights and princesses while visiting the children museum. ”

Science Museum
“this is the technical Museum. It is very close to the appartment, and the building itself is worth a look (inside and out). They have a lot of great current exhibits plus very old technical supplies that always make me smile. Its quite big, maybe for a rainy day, or if you are into it like me ;)”

Park
“In the oak-filled woodland of Lainzer Tiergarten, you’ll find snuffling wild boars, giant-horned goats, mischievous squirrels and serene deer freely roaming the grassy meadows and mossy forest floors. The gardens’ walking trails and wide open heaths are framed with fragrant cherry trees and the humming drill of woodpeckers in the warmer months. Come winter, cross-country skiing and near-silent restorative treks across snow-encrusted trails are possible. Hidden within the former hunting ground is Princess Sisi’s Hermesvilla, a marble mini-palace famously gifted to her by Franz Joseph I in 1881. Stop in for a queenly coffee and cake on the terrace.”

Park
“One of the best parks in vienna which has something to offer for everyone. There are fitness devices, three table tennis tables, a playground for kids, a basket ball court, an area for dogs and lots of green area to relax. Prefere going there in autumn or summer! A lovely park for a stroll. We come here every morning if we can to the playgrounds as we live near here. The kids love it, especially the sand area and the open grass area to run. Do note that there are no toilets though. A very nice park with wonderful playgrounds.”

Farmers Market
“While it looks trashy on the outside, don’t let your preconceived ideas get the better of you when it comes to this colourful permanent indoor market. With a history behind it that still stands in the impressive stone entrance that can be seen from the outside, the Meiselmarkt is a strange mix of a place unparalled in Vienna. While the upper floor plays host to the regular shop chains, pay particular attention to the ground floor, where you’ll find bustling vegetable stalls, butchers with smoked legs of pork hanging from the ceiling, shops selling those hard-to-find exotic goods, and a number of traditional Beisls that have survived the test of times with their long-term Stammgäste throwing back beers and puffing on cigarettes out front.”

“Best restaurant in Vienna. 4/4 plates were very tasty and the portions were large enough and prices are fair. Order the Zbojnik. You're welcome. Amazing service, we came here twice during our stay in Vienna. My girlfriend has allergies to various stuff and they triple checked to make sure it's safe to eat. Super friendly place, 10/10 would recommend. ”
