Art Museum
“One of the most famous an most beautiful museums in Vienna, we suppose. If you prefer modern art go to the Museumsquartier on the opposite side of the street. The same building on the other side of the place is the museum for Historically Nature. Its not really a museum in a modern style but its charming with all these old stuffed animals …”

Church
“The Stephansdom Vienna with the famous Pummerin bell is a world wide known cultural possession and one of Vienna landmarks. The local people use also the name Steffel for this impressive cathedral. Pummerin Bell: In 1951 the new Pummerin was casted in St. Florian partly out the material of the old bell which tumbled down at the fire in 1945. It was pulled up in 1957 onto the 68 m high north tower. The biggest and heaviest bell of Austria weighs 21.383 kg. Stephansdom data and facts: To reach the top room of the high tower, which is the 137 m high south tower and also commonly known as Steffl, you need to climb 343 steps.The cathedral itself is 107 m long and 34 m wide. The central aisle is 28 m high and the three choir halls are 22 m high. Visitor Info: The cathedral of Vienna is definitely worth a visit. The entrance to this imposing building is free, but only some areas may be visited without paying an entrance fee. For the main area of the cathedral a guided tour by audio guide is available for around 6,00 Euro. At this tour you will see numerous art historical and architectural highlights like paintings, altars and sculptures. Both towers offer an impressive view over the city center.

Opera House
“One of the world's largest and most splendid theaters, the Vienna State Opera House (Wiener Staatsoper) has hosted many of the world's most prominent composers, conductors, soloists, and dancers. Operatic and ballet performances are staged at least 300 times a year, fuelled by an obsession with music that goes as far back as 1625 when the first Viennese Court Opera was performed. The current massive Opera House was built in 1869 and is notable for its French Early Renaissance style, while interior highlights include a grand staircase leading to the first floor, the Schwind Foyer (named after its paintings of famous opera scenes), and the exquisite Tea Room with its valuable tapestries. Capable of accommodating an audience of 2,211 along with 110 musicians, the Opera House is also home to the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. (English language guided tours are available.)”
