You can do a lot in three-and-half days in Vienna, but you do have to be organized. Also, you'll need to build in the "screwing up the public transportation" initiation. After half-a-day though, you'll probably have the color-coded U-system down.
Here are some "must do's":
... for a Schnapps museum tour. The Schnapps has been in one family right from the beginning the front room is still set up with the original furniture and has been used in a few movie and TV shows. Many famous have been here and one hallway is full of photos of them. One lady from 'The great Outdoor's visited the tour guide told every Australian that a very famous lady came here, little did she know that no one actually knew her! ...

... Empress who also met a tragic death. As I noticed the dates of various events in Empress Sisi’s life, I kept thinking about the same timeline in my Cross Anchor, SC; Thomas Miles, just died, Landon was still keeping the faith at New Hope Baptist Church, Civil War just broke out, etc. After standing on my feet for 3 or so hours, I needed to rest back at our hotel. I stayed at the hotel to rest and John went back out on the ...
... below. For our last excursion, we went to the lower Belvedere and perused the last of the Klimt and Schiele available to us. It's much smaller than the upper Belvedere, so we were done in a reasonable amount of time and decided to go back to the hotel. After all, it was raining cats and dogs and mammoths and beluga whales, so we were not in the mood for any shopping or meandering.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Hahn Vienna
We arrived at 3:00 pm on a Sunday, and were shocked to find that the reception hours ended at 2:00, necessitating finding a phone booth and calling the head office. (We didn't know this in advance. Weekdays, reception is open until 8:00 pm.)
After that little debacle was settled, we were quickly installed in a comfortable room on the second floor of this modernized hotel. The view out our window of a bank of unattractive offices and some raised train tracks wasn't great, but the baking afternoon sun required closed drapes anyway. (The "air conditioning" was little more than a fan).
On the whole, though, for those traveling with a car, this place is a great deal at 76 Euro a night plus breakfast. It's two blocks from the U3, which takes you right into the heart of the Vienna scene in 15 minutes, without parking or driving hassles, and the neighborhood, though working class and nothing fancy, is decent and safe, with great people-watching opportunities.
The receptionists are business-like, but friendly enough, and the place is absolutely spotless, and the breakfast quite generous. Our only mishap (besides the surprise at the beginning), was a parking ticket due to parking too close to the pedestrian crosswalk--though we didn't park any differently than anyone else. I suspect our obvious rental car status helped seal the deal with that ticket.
