While Vienna, Austria is probably best known for its elegant baroque architecture, it also was once home to influential masters such as Mozart, Beethoven and Sigmund Freud. On my recent Adventures by Disney Danube river cruise, I was able to savor the rich history of this grand city while exploring a palace, sampling delicious regional cuisine and even trying my hand at a little puppetry.

With Adventures by Disney you kick off the day in Vienna with a tour of the magnificent Schönbrunn Palace. Here you’ll unravel the history of the Imperial families’ gorgeously furnished home, complete with expansive terraced gardens (photo op alert). Then enjoy a private marionette show, which includes a unique demonstration, as well as a yummy strudel-making lesson. Finally, “prost” to a great day at a traditional Viennese wine house where you’ll sample local favorites in a lively atmosphere filled with live music and entertainment.

Here’s a look at some of the sights and sounds you’ll experience in this unforgettable city.
