Vienna Overview
Vienna is remarkable. Its eminent role in history, architecture (gorgeous churches and palaces), art (a myriad of treasures) and music combine to embody the phrase "Old World Charm". We start the tour at Belvedere Palace, a stunning Baroque structure that now houses one of Vienna's most impressive art collections (Medieval, Baroque, Viennese Art Nouveau, works of Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele and Oskar Kokoschka). Designed as a summer palace for Prince Eugene of Savoy, it has been a sumptuous gilded retreat for princes, dukes and archdukes of the Hapsburg dynasty.





Then we continue to Karlskirche, a gem of Austrian Baroque. We pass the State Opera, the well-known theatre where Gustav Mahler and Karl Boehm conducted performances, and then walk by Hotel Sacher to Graben, the heart of the town. Visit the Stephansdom (St. Steven Cathedral) -- an imposing Gothic cathedral that has been a symbol of the city for more than eight centuries. Close to the Stephansdom there are Baroque palaces and narrow, winding medieval streets.  The Hofburg Palace is one of the many amazing places where the ruling Hapsburgs lived. This vast complex of buildings interspersed with squares and parks is now open to the public and contains exhibitions and collections (e.g. Burgkapelle - Winterreitschule). The city, once home to the Hapsburg Empire, claims Mozart, Schubert, Bruckner and Freud, whose lives and accomplishments are documented and celebrated in Vienna. Most of the sights you will want to take in are located in the Innerstadt, encircled by a series of avenues called the Ring, where the Museum of Fine Arts (Kunsthistorisches Museum is Vienna's national gallery of art), the Parliament and City Hall are located. Also see the "Hundertwasserhaus" (well known for its unique and unusual contemporary architecture), the Giant Ferris Wheel at the Prater, the Danube Tower (a symbol of modern Vienna) and the United Nations building. Visit the Naschmarkt, Vienna's largest market with a number of beautiful Jugendstil buildings. 
Jewish Vienna
The tour begins with the Old Jewish Quarter (Jewish School, the New Synagogue, and ruins of the medieval Synagogue). The Ruprechtskirche, the city's oldest church, is also nearby. The Sigmund Freud Museum, a meticulous tribute to the father of psychoanalysis, exists in a flat where Freud (born in present-day Czech Republic) lived and worked during the most active part of his life -- from 1891 until his flight from Nazis in 1938. See an exhibition including a collection of photographs, personal effects, and a selection from Freud's unique collection of antiques.  In the Jewish Museum, apart from the collection of Judaica, there are interesting temporary exhibitions concerning Austrian Jews. Apart from the "Jewish part" of the day, see the Schoenbrunn Palace. This vast palace, one of Europe’s most enchanting, is the former summer home of the Hapsburg emperors. Encompassing no less than 1,441 rooms and halls, its opulence has been glimpsed by many. The Orangerie, park and gardens surrounding the Schoenbrunn, are dotted with Baroque fountains and sculptures.
Located near Linz, this former Nazi concentration camp can be visited on the way from Prague to Vienna. Mauthausen is today one of the most well-preserved places of Nazi terror, making it a must-visit for all those with an interest in the history of the Holocaust. Being in Austria, Mauthausen offers different perspective from the Polish death-camps.
