Sitting on the banks of the romantic River Danube, Vienna and the surrounding countryside are rich in history and culture, and car rental is essential for seeing the sights. Home of legendary composers such as Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert and Johann Strauss, your Viennese car rental holiday will be inspiring.
With trams ruling the roads in town, the city itself is best explored on foot. Famous attractions include the Burgtheater, Belvedere Palace, the Schönbrunn Palace and Zoo, and the Danube Tower.
Car rental is the best option when touring outside the city limits, however. We recommend a visit to the picturesque natural environment of the Vienna Woods, or to the fascinating Carnuntum Archeological Park, home to unique ancient buildings and reconstructions of Roman dwellings. Located between Vienna and Bratislava, it is easily accessible using car rental.
Another great car rental adventure in the Vienna region is the one-hour journey to the impressive Hof Castle. This baroque palace recreates the imperial world of the Viennese Court lifestyle, and is a spectacular building with impressive grounds and gardens.
Just outside Vienna, your car rental tour of the area will also take you to the baroque beauty of Klosterneuburg Abbey. Over 900 years old, it houses a number of priceless art treasures, including the 'Verdun Altar' – the most well preserved altar of its type from the Middle Ages.
Finally, if you're in Vienna during the late summer, a car rental trip out to Grafenegg Castle during the annual Music Festival will round off a perfect holiday.
