The Best Restaurants in VIENNA

Vienna has 280 palaces for a population of over 1.7 million. These palaces now house museums, galleries and even stables for the world-famous Lipizzaner stallions. While contemplating these treasures, the Viennese are blessed with 18 of the world's greatest coffeehouses, where even on a cold Tuesday in December the lines go out the door. Myriad elegant pastries include such iconic desserts as apple strudel and Sachertorte. For heartier fare, look for stuffed dumplings, Wiener schnitzel and the mighty wurst.
