Things to do in Vienna

Tread Vienna's cobbled Innere Stadt, pausing for zigzag mosaics at gothic St Stephen's Cathedral, Habsburg treasures at palatial Hofburg and Albertina's Michelangelo originals. The Museum Quarter is best for cutting-edge art: from Warhol at the Museum of Modern Art Ludwig Foundation to Schiele at the Leopold Museum. Need a breather? Leafy Prater, with its Ferris wheel, is a peaceful retreat and Burggarten's tropical Schmetterlinghaus flutters with butterflies. Most museums open daily 10am-6pm (until 10pm Thursday).
