Excursions to Vienna: the historic centre of the Danube metropolis
You should ideally leave your car on the outskirts of town and explore the centre of Vienna by underground. This is the fastest and most comfortable way of reaching the sights of Vienna. Get off at the Stephansplatz stop and you will find yourself at the heart of this Danube capital. The escalator will take you up to ground level as the tower of St. Stephen’s Cathedral gradually appears before you. Visit the spiritual centre of Vienna and climb the tower of this striking Gothic structure: the views across Vienna are simply breath-taking!
