How to spend top weekend in Vienna - ideas on extraordinary attractions and sites

Vienna 2011 If you’ve already visited all most popular tourist places in Vienna and now crave for something new and unexplored, it’s time to make a walk in Simmering district. The landmark located there is rarely present in classical tourist guides, so not everyone knows about it. The picturesque district is home to ancient Vienna Gasometers - giant reservoirs for gas that were constructed yet at the end of the 19th century.

With time, the reservoirs lost their initial importance. Several years ago, they were rebuilt. Nowadays, an unusual settlement is located there, and it has offices, residential space, shops, and even entertainment venues. A walk in such an old industrial space promises to be an exciting one! The gasometers still have elements of the original design, and after the restoration they look incredible. After a walk in the unusual quarter, do not hurry to leave Simmering. Look at landscape decorations near the gasometers, and examine the facades carefully. There is a large face on one of them. A century ago, that face showed gas pressure. One more interesting architecture landmark, Dancing houses, is located nearby.
If you have already visited Salvatorian Monastery on Habsburgergasse during one of your previous vacations in Vienna, don’t hesitate to do it once again. Several years ago, a new exciting entertainment opened there. Time Travel Vienna is a unique opportunity to make a real journey to the past. The ultra-modern 5D cinema offers immersive experiences for all visitors, who will learn about the most important events in the history of the country and will even be able to talk to outstanding personalities.

Travelers keen on modern art will find it amusing not only to attend Vienna galleries but also to use the city’s metro. Many outstanding modern artists worked on the design of some stations. Volkstheater is considered one of the most attractive. Famous artist Anton Lehmden created a unique mosaic for this station. The mosaic covers an area of 360 square meters. Westbahnhof station offers one more masterpiece - 55 Steps through Europe, a magnificent work by Adolf Frohner that is dedicated to the evolution of a human. I order to see the work in detail, you will need to make no less than 55 steps as the total length of the work is 40 meters. Visit other metro stations to see eye-catching graffiti by Oswald Oberhuber or, if you’re lucky enough, even find unique video installations by Peter Kogler.
