Vienna has it all – a historic city center, green parks, wineyards and an interesting history.

And that’s not only a benefit to Vienna’s residents, but also to the visitors staying in our apartment hotels in Vienna.
Vienna has a lot to offer in terms of sightseeing. The city center is full of fantastic, historic buildings, which date back to the reign of the Habsburgers. For example, if you stand on Vienna’s Heldplatz (Heroe’s Square), you’ll be able to enjoy a 360 degree panoramic view, which has not changed in more than 200 years.
