How to Spend 1 Day in Vienna

How to Spend 1 Day in Vienna

Discover the history and culture of Vienna in one day, from classical music to contemporary food. Learn about Vienna’s architecture and history, walk through one of its markets, and listen to a live Mozart concert in a single day. Here are a few ways to spend 24 hours in Vienna. 

Morning: Palaces and Private Tours

Get your bearings in Vienna and see the grandeur of its architecture with an introductory morning tour. For an intimate experience, choose a private tour and follow your guide to visit the city’s top historical attractions, which might include Schönbrunn Palace and St. Stephen’s Cathedral. Visitors interested in the elaborate palaces of Vienna may want to opt for a combination tour that might include skip-the-line tickets to the Schönbrunn Palace and a historical walking tour. To travel through the city quickly and explore independently, take a hop-on hop-off tour.

Afternoon: Coffee, Culture, and Cycling

Maximize your time in Vienna with a tour that covers ground quickly. Join a bike tour and pedal past top landmarks such as the Hofburg Palace. Bike tours tend to visit off-the-beaten-path spots and explore city streets not always seen by visitors. Alternatively, cruise through Vienna on a Segway and follow your guide to see historic landmarks. Foodies may want to experience the culture of Vienna with a small-group food-focused walking tour that highlights the city’s food, coffee, and markets. Such tours typically allow you to eat and drink your way through the city with stops at a traditional coffeehouse, pastry shop, and market stalls at Naschmarkt.

Night: All About Music

A trip to Vienna wouldn’t be complete without hearing the music of Austrian composers such as Mozart performed live. Concerts take place at the Musikverein, a 19th-century concert hall, and the Vienna State Opera House, among others. Some classical music experiences, including one featuring the music of Mozart and Strauss for concert at Schönbrunn Palace, can be combined with a palace tour and dinner. Another combination tour offers a river cruise down the Danube in addition to a concert at Schönbrunn Palace.
