Ideal 3 Days Vienna Itinerary for the First Time Visitor

things to do in vienna St Stephens church

Vienna for Newbies!

Vienna, the largest city on the River Danube, has been variously called, and quite aptly too, as the city of dreams, the city of music and even city of dances. We, at Lemonicks, also call it the city of art and culture. With this small introduction in place let us dive deep to see what a first-time visitor’s 3 days Vienna itinerary looks like. Mind you Vienna, the city of Freud and Mozart, cannot be covered in 3 days in full so we have for you the most important places to visit, just to get a feel of the place, at the same time adding things to do which would break the monotony of visiting one museum after the other. 

The streets of Vienna are paved with culture, the streets of other cities with asphalt.

We have purposely kept the evenings free for you to enjoy, as per your tastes. There are an ample number of  fine dining restaurants, clubs, concerts, ball (as in dancing), operas and so on. If you plan to visit a Viennese Ball, make sure dressed for the occasion. They are all formal black-tie affairs for men and flowing formal dresses for women. I was told that Indian ladies are allowed to wear a Sari at some of these events! Hey there, are you listening?! 🙂 🙂

No wonderJohann Strauss 2 wrote this famous waltz composition,  An der schönen, blauen Donau (On the Beautiful Blue Danube)

We also strongly suggest getting a 3 day Vienna Pass for EUR 125 to match the 3 Days Vienna Itinerary, which allows you to enter 60 attractions free of cost and all types of public transport is also free. For Detailed costs and benefits, click here. 

There are a zillion museums in Vienna. So we have distributed the most important ones evenly on all 3 days.

Day 1 of 3 Days Vienna Itinerary

Let us get the important palace-museum-president’s office out of the way to kick start 3 Days Vienna Itinerary!

Hofburg Palace (Schloss Hofburg)

Vienna is known for its palaces, big and small, but all of them beautiful. It may be owned by the ruling members or maybe by the kings and princes of other states.

Liechtenstein Palace, Vienna

The beautiful imperial Hofburg Palace is not just a palace. It is perhaps one of the biggest palace complexes in the world. Some parts of the complexes are dated as early 14th century! Eventually successive Austro-Hungarian Habsburg Emperors and empresses improved and expanded it to what it is now. This was the seat of Habsburg Empire till 1918 when the empire ended after the first world war.

Now it is home to several museums and the famous Spanish Riding School. A part of it now houses, fittingly, the office of the President of Austria.

Cafe Sacher   

It is now time for some Viennese coffee and cakes. Coffee and Cakes is seeped in to the culture of Vienna. Not only that , a visit to Vienna is not complete , if you don’t have the world famous and immensely popular original Sachertorte. and that too at the place where it originated, at Cafe Sacher.

It is said that in early 19th century Prince Metternich, wanted to surprise his guests with a new dessert. As luck would have it, the main Chef fell ill and a young apprentice of 16 named Franz Sacher, created this dessert, which was well received and relished. 🙂

It was much later he opened his cafe and wine shop in Vienna. The current form and recipe of Sachertorte was, however, created by his son Eduard. There were a few legal issues , but we are not interested , are we?

Cafe Sacher is located right opposite the State Opera House and is just about half-a-kilometer from Hofburg.

Hundretwasser Village

Friedensreich Hundertwasser, an Austrian born Architect and artists, was a non conformist and did not believe in straight lines in buildings and liked to experiment. All his buildings carry the stamp of his maverick personality, if I may say so.

Hundretwasser Village, Vienna, Trees on the roof .

His most popular building is the apartment block named after him, the Hundertwasserhaus , in Vienna. When we visited it we could see why he was considered a maverick. Built in 1983 , this houses 53 apartments, a roof of earth and greenery and wait…. There are trees growing through the apartments and branches hanging out of windows. There are over 200 trees and bushes in and on the building.

This became such a big tourist attraction with millions visiting every year, he built a series of buildings, cafes and shops around it for the tourists to be able to enjoy the ambiance for a longer time. He essentially built around the structures already present in the vicinity.

3 days vienna itinerary St Stephens church
St Stephens Cathedral, Vienna

At over 100 meters long and 40 meters wide , the St Stephens Cathedral is one of the biggest cathedrals in Austria. The two towers are conspicuously dissimilar. The South Tower is a massive 136M , built in the same style as the Cathedral and the North tower is just about half the size which seems to suggest either money or the time or both were constraints. North Tower was later completed in the renaissance period and looks as such.

7th District , Neubau

Vienna’s 7th district is often called a well kept secret from the tourists!   Well, not anymore 🙂 🙂

Schloss Schönbrunn (Schoenbrunn/Schonbrunn palace)

The Second day of 3 Days Vienna Itinerary may begin with Schloss Schönbrunn palace. It is a bit out of the way so better to finish it in the morning.

Schoenbrunn palace was the summer palace for the rulers of the house of Hapsburg and it is as beautiful as its name, which means a palace of beautiful spring! As per the guide the royal folks and other courtiers used to drink water from a cool spring, in the premises.

For those interested in architecture , this is constructed in late Baroque or Rococo style. There are more than 1400 rooms. However only about 40 – 50 rooms are open for public. The premises can be divided into several parts so that you may plan your visit time accordingly.

The main building of Schloss Schönbrunn (Schoenbrunn palace)

A walk through the luxuriously decorated imperial apartments of Empress Marie Theresa and the later Emperor Franz and his wife Sisi (short for Elisabeth), is definitely worth seeing. Even going through the 40 odd rooms gives you the feeling the magnificence and a peek into their opulent lifestyle. Even the then French Queen , Marie Antoinette had a room here , as she was the sister of Maria Theresa. It is said Napoleon once stayed in this very room.

There are other notable rooms such as the banquet hall, Empress’ private salon , the breakfast room, nursery and many others.

Schönbrunn Park and Gardens

Schönbrunn Park and Gardens are spread over 500 acres! One can easily spend an hour or two here. To give an idea about the immense area, you can climb a small hill on the opposite of the park to a structure called Gloriette, a long arcaded structure built to commemorate the Battle of Kolin of 1757, and has an added purpose to provide a scenic view to the Empress. You can have a sweeping view of the palace, gardens and also of the city on the other side, while sipping coffee at the cafe.

Useful Information on 3 Days Vienna Itinerary


  • We have taken a ideal situation that you will have 3 days fully available for the “3 days Vienna itinerary”. If you have less than three days then the best would be to drop the palaces and museums.
  • Alternately if you want to spend 2 days in Vienna then it may be a good idea to follow our Day 1 and Day 2 of our 3 days Vienna itinerary and adjust accordingly.
  • If you have special requirements or need more information while visiting these sights, please do call on the number provided
  • We found that the best way to go around was to take the public transport, a combination of subway, trams and buses, which are reliable, frequent, quick and comfortable. Taking a cab is an option but you will end spending a lot more money and time. Self drive is almost a no-no. The very first time I went to Vienna drove ourselves and most of the time we were driving in circles looking for a parking space.
  • For public transport don’t forget to buy Vienna Card which provides you ample discounts on attractions.
  • Alternately you may buy Vienna Pass which includes entry to over 60 attractions and free use of public transport
  • Best time to visit Vienna is in the Summer but it is also the high tourist season. Be ready to tackle huge crowds. We think visiting the very touristy places, like Belvedere, Schonbrunn etc. in the morning is better.

Best time to visit Vienna

Vienna is beautiful all the year round and has something for the visitors during any season.

Summer is definitely the number one season when the sun is up and Vienna is quite bustling with visitors. Downside is , it could become too crowded and waiting time may increase.

Vienna in December weather, is equally good with as many visitors and is enchanting with its Christmas festivities. Please checkout the next couple of tips too! Spring and Autumn are always great seasons because of mild weather.

In terms of weather in Vienna, it is essentially a 365 days city , even in winter the lowest temperature is just a notch or two below zero degree. S

Vienna Christmas Markets (Wiener Weihnachtsmärkte)

Christmas in Vienna is quite special. In case you find yourself in Vienna during Christmas season then there are a few more activities you may consider and adjust your itinerary accordingly. We think the best thing to do in Vienna at Christmas would revolve around visiting the Vienna Christmas Markets. In fact most of the Christmas markets in Vienna are already in places you would be visiting as per the Itinerary.

The Christmas markets in Vienna are a place to go to at any time of the day but there is a lot more glitter, vibes and atmosphere in the evenings. These markets open from Mid November.

The big Chrismas Market is on the plaza in front of Rathaus (City Hall). The stalls surround the huge Christmas tree selling food , beverages, trinkets, Christmas souvenirs and other items related to the season. It is possibly the best Christmas Market in Vienna. If you have had enough of this then you may go to the park next door for more.

Schloss Belvedere, has a cute Christmas Market which you could cover when visiting the galleries here.

Similary Schoenbrunn Schloss has a huge Christmas tree and the market is more upmarket.

Other places of importance for Chrismas in Vienna are, Stephanplatz, Am Hof, Karlsplatz, Hofburg and several others. This is truly one of the best things to do in Vienna in December.

Merry Christmas and have a glass of Glühwein (Mulled wine) on our behalf!

Best area to stay in Vienna, Austria

There is no dearth of accommodations in Vienna, which caters to all pockets and all types of travelers. We suggest staying in and around the old city area which has the most of the attractions mentioned in the 3 days in Vienna itinerary above. Which translates to Vienna 1st District.

Places to stay in 1st district or Innere Stadt in Vienna

Alternately you may stay in District 7, Neubau, which has a lot of restaurants, cafes and galleries. All the attractions are still nearby or at the most a short tram-trip away.

How to get to Vienna

By Air: Vienna International Airport is located about 20 KM from the city center. This airport has flights from and to almost all countries of Europe and many major cities of the world. From the Airport one can take the City Airport Train to reach the Wien-Mitte station or Vienna Centre. Please note that it is not the same as Vienna Central Station

By Train: Vienna, through its many train stations, is well connected to all parts of Europe. So if you are already in Europe then you may explore this option. Please check the prices of flights also. Many times the flight prices are cheaper than trains! Especially the long distance ones.

By Bus: Vienna, again, is well connected by buses from many parts of Europe and is by far the cheapest option, if time is not a constraint. Both the national bus service and several private bus lines service this city.

By Boat: Passenger boats are available on the River Danube. Personally, we think, you must use it only if you want to experience boat rides for short distances. If you must take the boat, then we suggest taking boat to Bratislava, Slovakia. The travel time is almost the same as train. 1 Hour.

Getting around Vienna

Vienna has one of the best public transport system in Europe. This makes it most suitable for tourists to visit places of interest in Vienna.

An extensive network of U-Bahn, Trams and buses make sure that all parts of this vast city are covered. You may buy single tickets for each journey but buying one of the many transport cards is more convenient and cheaper in the long run. Please check out Vienna Cards

For most value for money you should consider buy the Vienna Pass which is an integrated card that works on public transport and most of the attractions too.

Bicycles is also a great way to explore the old city area.
