Vienna sights and tickets to sights in Prague and Budapest

Jump to last reply

Hi! My husband and I will be traveling to Prague, Vienna, and Budapest in a few weeks. We will be spending 2 1/2 days in Vienna.

This might sound crazy because I know there are so many sights in Vienna, but we aren't seeing anything that seems crazy cool or important to see. I know often times sights don't seem great on paper, but are absolutely amazing in person, so i need to know what's a must do on this city. I think St. Stephens cathedral is for sure on our list, but I'm not sure that we are interested in spending hours upon hours touring palaces or museums unless they are truly breathtaking. We have been to Europe a number of times so we've seen a lot of this stuff.

We love art and enjoy art galleries and local artists work as well as short museums. We also love beautiful architecture.

I was thinking that it sounds the most fun to us to take a day trip to the Danube valley, maybe visit the Abbey and go wine tasting, but I feel like that sounds crazy when there's such a long list of 'must see' sights in Vienna.

What is everyone's opinion on spending one of our days in the Danube? Also, if anyone knows the logistics of this it would be great. Do we rent a car, bikes, or what? Or are we crazy for wanting to do that instead of another day in Vienna?

One more thing, is there anything in Prague, Vienna, or Budapest that we need to buy tickets for online in advance?

Thanks for your input in advance!!
Amanda
