A favorite, the underground Romermusem, right in the center of town near St. Stephen’s:

I write this from the perspective of someone who lived in Vienna for many years.

Day 1: Sunday - Museums and Art
Start your morning at the Kunsthistorisches Museum, home to an imperial collection of art and artifacts that will transport you through centuries of creativity. After immersing yourself in art, take a leisurely stroll through the MuseumsQuartier.

Touring the KHM can take a couple of hours, at least. Why stroll through Museums Quartier? If one is not inclined to tour the Leopold or MUMOK, it is a waste of precious time. If one is so art inclined, the better part of a day can be given over to KHM.

For lunch, indulge in traditional Viennese cuisine at a local Heuriger (wine tavern), where you can savor the flavors of Austria amidst the charm of vineyards.

The time to travel from KHM to the “charm of the (sic) vineyards” is not negligible. Someone following your itinerary will 1) short change the KHM; 2) possibly “waste” time in MQ; and 3) end up at a heuriger during the Mittagpause, when many are closed.

Day 2: History, Food and Nature

Begin with a visit to the Hofburg Palace, once the seat of the Habsburg empire, and now a symbol of Vienna’s storied past.
Treat yourself to a culinary adventure by joining a food and market walking tour, where you can taste the best of Viennese street food and fresh market produce.
In the afternoon, escape to the Vienna Woods or the Butterfly House in the Palmenhaus, to connect with nature and unwind in serene green spaces.


You actually recommend touring Hapsburg, then leaving Hapsburg to somehow get to the “Vienna Woods” before possibly returning to Hapsburg and the adjacent Palmenhaus? This is flag to me that you have never visited Vienna.

Just a comment on the opera:

I'm not sure where you live, but I found the middle level sears at Staatsoper were incredibly good value and a wonderful experience. I paid, I think, around 49 euros for a great seat, that would have cost me at least 3 times as much as my local, the Sydney Opera House. I was sorry I didn't have more nights to visit the Opera. The walk back to my hotel after the Opera was also a great experience.

You're welcome. For context, I was responding to a post that has since been deleted. I would never, ever have suggested an itinerary like the one proposed.

Please help me pick one seat for an evening ballet in the Ä100-Ä150 range at the Vienna State Opera House. Iíve tried to research and do this on my own, but am getting nowhere. Thank you.
