DrupalCon is located near the Prater, and is easily walkable to many incredible attractions. There are a lot of things to do in this city of music, art, culture.
Here are our top picks for things to see in Vienna:
“The former summer residence of the Habsburgs impresses with imperial ceremonial rooms and magnificent gardens. Maria Theresa, Emperor Franz Joseph, Empress Elisabeth and others once resided here.”
“The Giant Ferris Wheel in the Prater is one of the city's symbols. Almost 50 meters tall, it offers a breathtaking view of the city on the Danube.”
“The world-famous waxworks museum Madame Tussauds is the highlight of the Prater, with over 80 wax figures and an interactive experience based on Sisi.”
“The Prater Museum shows mementos of the old Wurstelprater amusement park, which was destroyed in 1945 during the last days of World War II. A local Viennese historian, Hans Pemmer, amassed a huge collection of memorabilia and donated it to the City of Vienna.”
“The Belvedere is not only a magnificent Baroque palace but also houses one of Austria's most valuable art collections – with key works by Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele and Oskar Kokoschka.”
