You could return many times because the palace houses museums with several prestigious collections. View the Imperial Crown, be struck by the beauty of the National library's state hall, visualize European history through the collection of arms and armor, or enjoy the grandeur of the private apartments of the Imperial family.
Belvedere Palace is another sight that will impress you with its baroque, dramatic and plush style. A magnificent palace originally built for a Savoy Prince in the 18th century.
St. Stephens Cathedral, a 12th century church of great beauty, stands out in Vienna as a Gothic masterpiece combined with Romanesque architecture.
