... Most of the sights seem to be around the Museum Quarter near Hofburg Palace. A lot of the major buildings were built during the reign of Franz Josef in the mid to late 1800's after he ordered the city walls torn down and replaced with the Ringstrasse (boulevarde circling the city).

We are heading to a smaller Austrian town tomorrow, Grunau Im Almtal, getting one step closer to Oktoberfest this coming weekend.
Good night everyone
