The best things to do in Vienna

There are three excellent places to visit in Vienna that are symbols of the city and of great value for locals. The first is Ringstrasse, a circular avenue around the center of Vienna separating the neighbourhoods of Hofburg and Stephansdom from the rest of the city. This avenue hosts many of the most significant architectural works of the city such as the Royal Palace Hofburg, City Hall, the Stock Exchange, the Burgtheater, the Votive Church, the University, the Museum of Art History, the Museum of Natural History and the Parliament. The latter is one of the most significant things to do in Vienna. It's huge neoclassical style building has two large rooms joined by a large central portico and whose views of the interior are impressive. The State Opera is also one of the vital things to see in Vienna. It's the most important opera company and is internationally known. You can visit the lobby, 2800 seat auditorium, the stage, the salon in which Francisco Joseph rested during intermissions, or the marble chamber, among other places. In regards to its architectural heritage, there are three palaces, which are some of the most important attractions in Vienna: Schönbrunn Palace, Hofburg Palace and the Belvedere Palace. The latter is a set of two palaces, the Upper and Lower Belvedere, where the works of artists who shaped the city during the Golden Age of Vienna are housed. Some of the most important rooms are the Hall of Grotesques, the Marble Gallery and the Hall of Mirrors. Out of all the stuff to do in Vienna, you can not miss the Danube Tower, a 252 meter tall structure from which you can see most of the city, the popular recreational area Prater and the peculiar residential block Hundertwasserhau, among others.
