Take a look behind the scenes
Do you know Vienna, the beautiful city on the river Danube? Right in the city’s center, on Vienna’s famous Ring Boulevard with its majestic buildings, there is a former palace waiting for you: the Hotel Imperial.
But only the Imperial concierge has the really cool stuff for families visiting Vienna with children in store. As a profound connoisseur of Vienna he does not only have individual insider tips for your parents, but also knows what kids really want.
Here are the concierge`s top 5 suggestions for children visiting Vienna:
You want to know more about the daily life of the imperial family? Then you’ve chosen the right spot. How was the imperial table laid? How about hygiene in imperial times? How complicated was it to put on all those different clothes, layer for layer? With what kind of toys did the emperor’s kids play? This and much more you will learn at Schönbrunn palace’s west wing – and you may even try on ancient costumes.

In the mood for action? Then you’re at the right place. From toboggan to rollercoaster or to spooky ghost trains you’ll find anything your heart desires at Vienna’s “Wurstelprater”. Those in a calmer mood may try the carousel or take a ride on the Giant Ferris Wheel, one of Vienna’s landmarks. Right next to it you’ll find the Planetarium, the Prater Museum or Madame Tussauds. And children in Vienna should definitely not miss a ride on the ancient Lilliput train.

HOUSE OF THE SEA
Wow – at the Aqua Terra Zoo you can marvel at 10,000 animals on nine floors. Sharks and sea turtles are the stars of the tropical seawater section, whereas you can watch free-flying birds and free-running monkeys at the tropical house and crocodile park. Since last year the 150,000 liter tank for the hammerhead sharks on the 10th floor has been another exciting highlight. In the café on the 11th floor you can refresh yourself and enjoy a breathtaking view of Vienna.

MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY
I know what you will like most at this great museum: the dinosaur and the kid’s room. While in the kid’s room you can play, explore and experiment after an exciting family tour, you will marvel at the skeleton of a diplodocus at the dinosaur room – one of the longest terrestrial vertebrates that have ever existed. But also many extremely rare or already extinct stuffed animals are showcased at this spectacular museum.

MUSEUM OF TECHNOLOGY
A must for children in Vienna: the “mini”, a special children’s sector for two- to six-year-olds. Do you want to know how it feels to drive a fire truck? Have you ever wanted to become a police officer yourself? The “mini” is a venue for all your senses – here, you can touch and try, while in other rooms you will marvel at ancient flying machines, steam engines or historic automobiles together with your parents.
