Prague to Vienna by chauffeured car

Traveling by a chauffeured car is the most comfortable, but also one of the more expensive options. The comfortable car transfer is sought by solo travelers or couples. Alternatively travelers that prefer privacy, often choose to self drive a rental car. Renting a car in Europe is easy. The problem is when return is done in other country than the country of the rental origin. When renting a car, the real deal is the car parking, which first can be expensive and second it can be very difficult.

Vienna city guide

The Austrian capital is known by many names. Whether you call it “The City of Dreams” or “The City of Music”, Vienna is one of the highest ranked livable cities in the entire world, and filled with exciting things both for tourists and residents alike.

Historically, Vienna is perhaps the most important city in Austria, and one not to be frowned-upon Europe-wise. Majestic palaces and antique buildings coexist with the more modern, trendy side of Vienna without clashing and give the city a unique vibe.

Since 1/3rd of the Austrian population lives in Vienna, the city has plenty of activities that constantly keep it booming with life. Besides its many museums and galleries, Vienna has an exciting nightlife, as well as hundreds of events throughout the year that are sure to keep its residents and visitors happy.

Although some people visit Vienna for the great food, others visit it due to its historic and cultural significance. Its architecture is almost unparalleled in the entire continent, with buildings with beautiful Baroque facades and centuries-worth of history that will leave every visitor in awe. Palaces are also aplenty in Vienna, and there are probably more than the average person can count.

The old mixes with the new and visitors will find in Vienna quaint little streets filled with luxury brands and bric-a-brac stores. Then there are the gigantic avenues and the seemingly never-ending gardens, filled with people enjoying the (mostly) good weather.

Vienna is also a very popular destination for Danube river cruise travelers, since the Handelskai docks located near the Reichsbrucke (The Empire bridge) are often used as a start of Danube river cruise by many cruise companies.

What to visit in Vienna

St. Stephen’s Cathedral

The St. Stephen’s Cathedral is probably the most iconic church in the whole country. Due to its height it is visible from most places in Vienna, and often used as a reference point. The church has several smaller chapels, as well as a grand total of 18 altars.

Rathaus

The Town Hall of Vienna was built in the 19th century in a Neo-Gothic style. It is similar to town halls in Belgium, with a gigantic tower standing at the middle. Visitors can go on one of the guided tours and marvel at the enormous rooms of this town hall.

Hofburg Palace

As most visitors will notice, Vienna kind of has a thing for colossal palaces. The Hofburg Palace is the official residence of the Austrian president, but tourists are free to take a tour of the complex and visit the old imperial apartments or the palace’s museum.

Schönbrunn Gardens

A part of the Schönbrunn Palace, the Schönbrunn Gardens are over a kilometer long and have several different sections. These gardens have beautiful flower displays as well as a legitimate hedge maze. At one end of the garden stands the Schönbrunn Palace and at the other end the Gloriette, a beautiful, classical, colonnaded building where you can relax and grab something to drink.

The picture shows the palm house and the botanical gardens in the Schonbrunn Gardens.

Schönbrunn Palace

One of the main attractions in Vienna, the Schönbrunn Palace has been standing since the 1600s. It was the birthplace of several Austrian emperors and has over 1440 rooms. This colossal palace will leave its visitors awestruck with the sheer size of it and with its beautiful Baroque architecture.

The Belvedere

The Belvedere is a historic building complex in Vienna, Austria, consisting of two Baroque palaces (the Upper and Lower Belvedere), the Orangery, and the Palace Stables. The buildings are set in a Baroque park landscape in the third district of the city, on the south-eastern edge of its centre. It houses the Belvedere museum. The grounds are set on a gentle gradient and include decorative tiered fountains and cascades, Baroque sculptures, and majestic wrought iron gates. The Baroque palace complex was built as a summer residence for Prince Eugene of Savoy.

The Burgtheater

The Burgtheater - Imperial Court Theatre is the Austrian National Theatre in Vienna, the most important German language theater and one of the most important theaters in the world. The Burgtheater was built in 1741 and has become known as "die Burg" by the Viennese population its theater company of more or less regular members has created a traditional style and speech typical of Burgtheater performances.

The Natural History Museum Vienna

The Natural History Museum Vienna is one of the most important natural history museums worldwide. The Natural History Museum Vienna is one of the largest museums and non-university research institutions in Austria and an important center of excellence for all matters relating to natural sciences. The museum's 39 exhibition rooms cover 8,460 square meters and present more than 100,000 objects. It is home to 30 million objects available to more than 60 scientists and numerous guest researchers who carry out basic research in a wide range of topics related to human sciences, earth sciences, and life sciences.

Parliament building

The building is located on the Ringstraße boulevard in the first district Innere Stadt, near Hofburg Palace and the Palace of Justice. It was built to house the two chambers of the Imperial Council (Reichsrat), the bicameral legislature of the Cisleithanian (Austrian) part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Since its construction, the Parliament Building has been the seat of these two houses, and their successors the National Council (Nationalrat) and the Federal Council (Bundesrat) of the Austrian legislature.

The foundation stone was laid in 1874; the building was completed in 1883. The architect responsible for its Greek Revival style was Theophil Hansen. He designed the building holistically, aiming to have each element harmonizing with all the others. He was therefore also responsible for the interior decoration, such as statues, paintings, furniture, chandeliers, and numerous other elements. Hansen was honored by Emperor Franz Joseph with the title of Freiherr (Baron) after its completion. Following heavy damage and destruction in World War II, most of the interior has been restored to its original splendour.

  • Prague to Vienna, quicker than plane, cheap as train

    Rating: 10 out of 10

    Dear Martin, thank you for the superb transportation services. When I booked you, I was not sure whether I wanted to go by plane, bus or train from Prague to Vienna. Then I discovered your excellent transfer services and realized that 4 hours car travel is in fact faster than going to the airport, flying over to Vienna and than again going from the Vienna airport to the city center. I also looked up trains and buses from Prague to Vienna, but at the end of the day, I wanted to have a peace of mind and chose your service. Thank you for driving me and my wife in person. It was a pleasure to meet you and I enjoyed talking to you the whole way. Good luck in your business!
