Vienna, Austria, well known as the birth place of the Viennese Waltz and the Vienna Boys Choir, but also seeped in history as it played a pinnacle host to some of the World’s most talented and illustrious composers ever to grace this planet.

It is easy to forget, in the shadow of the city’s great history, that Vienna is also one of the top metropolitan areas in all of Europe. This formally regal grande dame has given way to a dynamic and modern city space, and to see the original old city, snuggle up in between its modern counterpart, is just one of the attractions. Here are 10 Enthusiastic and Convincing Reasons to Visit Vienna.
