Stephen's Cathedral) is located, starting from there you will
discover the cobblestone squares and medieval lanes, conjuring up
images of Vienna's past. Definitely, you will not be able to resist the
delicious scent of coffee and Viennese pastries inviting you to the
many lovely cafés and restaurants in Vienna's Old Town.
If you stay longer in Vienna, you certainly will
not want to miss a visit of Schönbrunn
Palace, the summer retreat of Empress Maria Theresia with its
impressive gardens, a ride on the Riesenrad, Vienna's famous giant
ferris wheel located in the Prater, or a night in one of the many theatres or
music halls of Vienna - the city of music.
