Vienna is a fancy place. Everything is opulent, the cafes to the opera houses. Don’t be fooled by its appearance though, as there are also a number of free or inexpensive things to do in this city. Here are my recommendations for how to spend a few affordable days in Vienna, Austria.
Salzburg is the perfect stop on any trip through Central Europe. As Austria’s 4th largest city at about 150,000 people, it’s also a nice respite from the buzz of Vienna or Munich. Plus, it’s a “must” for any fan of The Sound of Music or lover of scenic mountain views. Here are five things to do in Salzburg that you don’t want to miss.
Innsbruck was not in my original trip itinerary and I’m SO glad I worked it in. It’s truly one of the most beautiful cities I’ve ever seen, with magnificent mountain views everywhere you look. In a matter of minutes, you can take the funicular and cable cars up into the mountains for endless hiking trails. I couldn’t believe that people actually get to live there!
