You can spend two weeks in Vienna / Wien and still want more time to visit the many historical places in the city. They even have restaurants and wine sellers down below which go back to the roman times. Across from the University you can see a part of the old city wall from the middle ages. The Wiener Stadt Part is the perfect place for listening to great music like the Blue Danube Waltz by Johann Strauss. The city is virtually surrounded by authentic wine drinking places. Grinzing maybe the best known of them all. A special kind of music, called Schrammelmusik, originated from there and forms a typical sound of the city to this day.
