Coffee and Cake at Café Central
Vienna is famous for its coffee house culture, so head to legendary Café Central, where coffee and a piece of delicious cake will be waiting for you. Located near Hofburg Palace, this elegant 19th-century café is known for being the former meeting point of famous figures such as Arthur Schnitzler, Sigmund Freud and Leo Trotzki.

The Vienna card was the greatest benefit as we used them extensively on the excellent U-bahn and tram system throughout Vienna. The Belvedere Palace is a little way outside of the Ring surrounding the old city and silly us, we decided to walk there on a warm sunny day -- we got the tram back!
The Gustav Klimt display is very interesting, detailing his life as well as his works. They were interspersed with works of his contemporaries as well.
A bonus was a voucher for coffee at the Cafe Central, not to be missed even if you do have queue for a table at times. Sit inside not outside, so you can absorb the atmosphere and elegance of a by-gone era, and those cakes, mmmm-mmm!

Excellent gallery rating is for gallery only. Negative was that when i converted voucher for ticket at the ticket office at Belvedere, VIATOR was not recognised by the issuing office. They honoured the admission but I did not receive the rest of the package.
