1. Feel Like a True Princess (Or Prince)

Visit one of Vienna's beautiful castles like Schönbrunn or Belvedere, wander around the impressive gardens, look at the former inhabitants' clothes and other historic artefacts, or take a peek inside the amazingly constructed rooms. After all, a day spent amid baroque architecture and dreamy greenery is a good day and sure to make you feel like you belong in the 18th century.

2. For the Art Geeks Among You

Vienna has a truly amazing range of art and history museums like the Albertina or the Art History Museum (Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien) that are home to famous paintings by Dürer, Rubens, or even Michelangelo. The buildings and exhibitions are vast, making them the perfect pick for a visit – especially in bad weather. If you're into modern art rather than classic art, then you should definitely give the Hundertwasser museum a try.

3. Bottomless Aperitivo Fun

Fans of good Aperitivos should head to Vienna's Copa Beach and treat themselves to a nice, cool cocktail at Lido Aperol to enjoy while sitting at the beach. This spot is a total gem on Vienna's map. Copa Beach is this fantastic mix of cool bars, beach spaces, and a tiny sandy haven with comfy sun loungers right by the Danube. What's most awesome about this place is that you get to soak in the natural beauty while checking out the sleek modern architecture, courtesy of those sleek glass office buildings. In the summer, the riverside buzzes with young folks, soaking up the good vibes in this laid-back cultural hub by the water.

4. Calling Action Fanatics

Ready for some real amusement park action? The Viennese Prater is a total blast. Since 1827, this place has been rocking with the iconic Ferris wheel and a mix of thrilling rides, making it perfect for both thrill-seekers and nostalgia lovers. And the food scene? Absolutely mouthwatering. From Viennese classics like Schweinestelze to the irresistible Lángos, it's a feast for your taste buds. Whether you're after excitement or a culinary adventure, Viennese Prater has it all.

5. Nature & Serenity

If you're a nature enthusiast looking for a unique escape, skip the traditional park visit and head to Vienna's Butterfly House nestled within the palm house. It's not just about the stunning butterflies; the art nouveau-style glass house adds a touch of architectural magic. Imagine strolling through a miniature rainforest, surrounded by the soothing sounds of waterfalls, charming bridges, and tranquil ponds. It's a nature walk like no other, promising a delightful and immersive experience.
