The Austrian capital is best known for its many balls (including the world famous Vienna Opera Ball), the graceful Viennese waltz, its famed coffeehouse culture, and superb architecture from yesteryear. Visit the Schloss Schönbrunn, the former imperial summer residence, and the Hofburg (Imperial Palace), the base of the Habsburgs, one of the most influential European royal houses.
