By contrast, the Museum of Natural History (Naturhistorisches Museum) is all about minerals, animals and archaeological findings – the Venus of Willendorf or a dinosaur skeleton, for instance. All in all, the Museum of Natural History contains an incredible 20 million objects!

At the beginning of the 18th century, Prince Eugene of Savoy originally planned the Belvedere as a garden palace. But there’s nothing modest about the imperial palace, which consists of the Upper and the Lower Belvedere in addition to a grand park. The palace is lavishly adorned and houses important artistic treasures from the Austrian Republic. Since 1903 the Belvedere Galleries have also been accommodated in the palace’s impressive rooms.

In 1955 a historic event took place here, when the treaty ending of occupation after World War II was signed at the Belvedere Palace. The gallery is well-known far beyond Austria’s borders, most especially because it is home to the significant works of Gustav Klimt.

St. Charles's Church (Karlskirche)

HotelWalking distance

The magnificent St. Charles’s Church embraces one of the most beautiful and interesting Baroque domes north of the Alps. The impressive chapel was founded by Emperor Charles as a sign of gratitude to God for the end of the plague in Vienna. In this marvellous church, designed by nobleman and master builder Fischer von Erlach, you will find influences from classic Roman architecture, Greece and the Orient. Ride up the comfortable panorama elevator to the impressive cupola and admire Michael Rottmayr’s world-famous frescoes.

Local Recreation

Schoenbrunn Palace

Schoenbrunn represents one of the most important landmarks in Vienna. There are more than 1.5 million visitors to the palace, the enormous parks and the Palmenhaus (palm tree house) each year. The former imperial summer residence fascinates every tourist to Vienna. The vast area includes the palace and numerous side buildings, as well as spacious gardens and parks. The impressive Baroque art work has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Schoenbrunn Zoo (Tiergarten Schönbrunn)

The zoo is housed in the spacious parks of Schoenbrunn Palace and counts among the world's oldest zoos. The historic zoo was carefully adapted so that visitors today can observe predatory cats, pandas, apes, reptiles, elephants and penguins in a naturalistic environment. On your family holidays in Vienna be sure not to miss a visit to Schoenbrunn Zoo!

Prater

To the Viennese, 'Prater' does not only mean the world-famous historic amusement park in Vienna, it also refers to the huge recreational area, surrounding the adventure park. Take a ride on the roller coasters, or enjoy the view from the giant Ferris Wheel or walk through the park or go for a run. It's all up to you – everything is possible at the Prater!
