Vienna

Vienna is a city that loves its music and food. Kids will have a great time enjoying traditional sweets and hot chocolate. Famous for Mozart and Strauss, at every turn you'll hear waltzes and impromptu violin concerts on street corners, and there's the Vienna Boy's Choir. Vienna is also home to the dancing Lipizzaner stallions, which are trained at the oldest riding school in Europe.

Vienna day trips
Take the U-Bahn - The Vienna subway, U-Bahn, is wonderful. Fast and modern, trains run every three minutes or so and will take you throughout the city.
Fun food
There's no end of fun food in Vienna. Hot dogs (bratwurst) are available at snack stands everywhere, and it's a really good hot dog. We also liked a traditional dish of ham and noodles, called Schinken-fleckerin (or Schinkenfleckerl).
Vienna is famous for its sweets. Two places to go are Aida, which has chocolate cakes and lovely fruit pastries, and Demel's, the windows are filled with amazing marizpan creations (sit down for a treat, or get goodies to go). When you're feeling in need of a snack or place to rest, stop into a Viennese cafe, and order up hot chocolate loaded with whipped cream.
Tip: If you're headed to Vienna in summer, you won't see either the Lipizzaner horses (relaxing down on the farm), or the Vienna Boy's Choir (they're usually performing on tour).
