The Austrian capital is home to some amazing museums and galleries. Here are some of the best ones to visit when you’re in Vienna.
Start off with the Naturhistorisches Museum (Natural History Museum), which houses an almost unfathomable 20 million objects. Whatever your interest, you’re bound to find something to stir your curiosity here.
Gadget fans will also really enjoy the Technology Museum, which sits near Schönbrunn Park. Wander the exhibits yourself or join a guided tour, a highlight being the live demonstration of high-voltage electricity.
One of the more unique museums in Vienna is the Globe Museum, which celebrates the history of astronomy. Found inside the Austrian National Library, it’s full of miniature replicas of the Earth, moon and Mars.
Sigmund Freud is one of the most famous people born in Austria, and the godfather of psychoanalysis. It’s only fitting, then, there is a museum dedicated to his life and work, housed inside his former residence in Vienna.
Visitors to Austria will likely have been offered some of the powerful fruit brandy known as schnapps, and you can learn all about it at the Old Vienna Schnapps Museum. You’ll have to make an appointment to visit, but it’s worth being organized.

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished.

Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
