From April to June, you can view a selection of opera and ballet performances on a video screen outside of the opera house while it is played in real-time inside the building.
Five cameras capture each performance, such that you will get a perfect view. Admission is free, however, there are only 180 seats.

The St. Stephen's Cathedral is stunning. The first structure of the church was already completed in 1160. However, major reconstruction and expansion were finished almost 300 years later.
If you have time, you should definitely visit the inside of this church and have a look at the very detailed interior of the building.

These gardens are the perfect place to relax. The Schönbrunn gardens are located next to the Schönbrunn Palace. This palace was the primary summer residence of the rulers of the House of Habsburg.
The gardens were created in 1695 and opened to the public around 1779. Furthermore, the gardens together with the palace can be found on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.
