Car Hire Vienna Downtown
Austria's elegant capital, Vienna, is by far the biggest and most significant city in this European republic. Catering for a population of some 1.7 million people, it has all the cultural, economic, and social trappings you would expect and makes a great base for any car hire tour of Austria.
It may be a cosmopolitan centre of cutting-edge modernity, but Vienna still retains the stately atmosphere of its opulent past. Once the home of the Habsburg court and its array of empires, the city is lined with imperial architecture, and the historic old town in the city centre features on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
Vienna has a dizzying array of historical buildings and museums, with most of these, such as St. Stephen's Cathedral, the Museum of Fine Arts, and the Albertina museum situated in the Innere Stadt (city centre). The Schloss Schonbrunn palace is situated in the Outer West district, however. Browse the historic heart at your leisure, making time to sample the city's wonderful culture of "kaffee und kuche" (coffee and cakes).
