Plan your vacation to Austria, the twelfth richest nation based on GDP per capita standing. The country’s rich history and traditions make it a great tourist destination. And like Switzerland, Austria is also Europe’s winter sports capital.

Here are the top five amazing tourist attractions to include in your Austrian vacation itinerary.

Vienna State Opera
The grandiose architectural wonder that is the Vienna State Opera is an absolute must-see. It is not only known for its stunning architecture, it can also be considered as the most celebrated opera house in history. Its orchestra alone is recognized as one of the best of its kind in the world. The Vienna State Opera offers a range of musical choices, from classical and modern operas to ballets.

Schönbrunn Palace
The breathtaking façade of Schönbrunn Palace is a sight not to be missed. One of the key tourist attractions in Vienna, the palace has 1,441 rooms, 45 of which are open to the public, and shows off the opulence akin to Versailles.

Registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996, Schönbrunn Palace is the site of the oldest zoo ever created, the Privy Garden, and the Rococo-oriental styled Room of the Millions.

Giant Ferris Wheel
Taking a family trip to Vienna is not complete without visiting the Giant Ferris Wheel in the Prater, an amusement park close to the Danube. When you ride the Giant Ferris Wheel, you get to catch a glimpse of the entire city. It was featured in the 1949 film, The Third Man, which starred Orson Wells.

Melk Abbey
The legendary monastery Melk Abbey is located on a cliff that overlooks the Danube River. Leopold II once used it as his stronghold castle before bequeathing it to the monks. Melk Abbey was one of the grandest exemplars of Baroque architecture during its time.

Karntner Strasse
Karntner Strasse is the famed shopping center in Vienna. Make this your final stop in the search for souvenirs for your Austrian vacation. It is located near the Vienna Opera House and Hotel Sacher.
