While walking, you'll take in top Vienna attractions including the Hofburg Imperial Palace, the Sacher cafe, and the gothic-style Stephansdom (St Stephan's Cathedral).

Another equally classic Vienna attraction that you will see is Heldenplatz (Heroes' Square), where Adolf Hitler made his 1938 annexation speech during WWII.

Before your Vienna tour finishes, you'll enjoy brief visits to the Spanish Riding School and Hofburg Imperial Palace, which was once home to the powerful Hasberg dynasty, rulers of the Austro-Hungarian empire.
