One of the nicest place i had the chance to see in my life. The atmosphere, the beauty, the impression time has stopped, everything makes you feel like living in another century... Indispensable more »
Top of the visiting list, I had hudge expectations from this place and was not let down. The place is impressive both in size and design. It's always a good practice to arrive early as it opens at 10 AM and gets crowded really fast. Also, the attraction is included on the Vienna Pass free entry list
How beautiful. And so well preserved and cared for. I have to say entry is confusing, the family ticket (2 adults and 2 children) is cheaper than the ticket for 2 adults, but they will not sell you the family ticket if you don;t have children. Very strange. But once inside its ...just glorious.I would have loved a photo on the bookshelf "stairs" ( what do they call these ) but there's no way to get to them. But a highlight of our visit to Vienna
