Vienna question (also Germany, Amsterdam)

Jump to last reply

Hello. I'm going on a two-week river cruise in July/August, starting in Vienna, through German and ending in Amsterdam. I have never been to these places, and I will be with my husband, my 18-year-old daughter and my mother-in-law.

Although I would appreciate any comments or suggestions concerning the river cruise (on Grand Circle), my main question involves Vienna. We are adding an extra night in Vienna at the outset. The cruise includes a motor coach tour of Vienna, and I'm sure we'll hit the high spots and touristy areas on that tour.

So I'm looking for an area or areas to explore on our own that isn't so touristy, yet is accessible by metro and interesting for each of us. I also would like to stay in an area that has interesting pubs and restaurants and maybe shops. It needs to be close to the center city because we'll need to take a taxi or metro to the city dock in the morning.

It's only one night, of course, so we don't expect to cover a lot of ground. But I'd like the one night to be in a cool area.

Thanks for your help!
