VIENNA FOR CHILDREN It was once said the Viennese love dogs more than they love children, and while this might be true for some folk, Vienna is actually quite child friendly.
Its museums, attractions and theatres, such as the Kunsthistorisches Museum and the Albertina , arrange children’s programs over the summer months.
The Prater, with its wide playing fields, giant Ferris wheel , playgrounds and funfair, is ideal for children.

Actually a historic farmhouse from Tyrol deconstructed and rebuilt inside the zoo, it holds ancient Noric horses, as well as goats, bulls, chickens and other farm animals.
The Donauinsel is another place where kids can run off their energy.

But it’s not all hobnobbing – they’ll also find out what aspects of life made the right royal Habsburgs different from mere low-life mortals.
The obvious – fortune, fame, pets you can ride – are a start.

10/free, 1st Sun of month free; 9am-5pm; Südtiroler Platz) The superb Heeresgeschichtliches Museum is housed in the Arsenal, a large neo-Byzantine barracks and munitions depot.
Spread over two floors, the museum works its way from the Thirty Years’ War (1618–48) to WWII, taking in the Hungarian Uprising and the Austro-Prussian War (ending in 1866), the Napoleonic and Turkish Wars, and WWI.
Highlights on the 1st floor include the Great Seal of Mustafa Pasha, which fell to Prince Eugene of Savoy in the Battle of Zenta in 1697.
On the ground floor, the room on the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo in 1914 – which set off a chain of events culminating in the start of WWI – steals the show.
The car he was shot in (complete with bullet holes), the sofa he bled to death on and his rather grisly blood-stained coat are on show.
The eastern wing covers the republic years after WWI up until the Anschluss (annexation into Germany) in 1938; the excellent displays include propaganda posters and Nazi paraphernalia, plus video footage of Hitler hypnotising the masses.

30pm Mon-Sat, 11.
30am- 5.
30pm Sun; Karlsplatz) Karlskirche rises at the southeast corner of Resselpark and is the finest of Vienna’s baroque churches.
This dramatic structure was built between 1716 and 1739, after a vow by Karl VI at the end of the 1713 plague.
It was designed and commenced by Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach and completed by his son Joseph.
The enormous twin columns at the front are modelled on Trajan’s Column in Rome and show scenes from the life of St Charles Borromeo (who helped plague victims in Italy), to whom the church is dedicated.
The huge oval dome reaches 72m.
The admission price includes entrance to Museo Borromeo and a small museum with a handful of religious art and clothing purportedly from the saint, but the highlight is the lift to the dome for a close-up view of the intricate frescoes by Johann Michael Rottmayr.
The high altar panel shows the ascension of St Charles Borromeo.
In front of the church is a pond, replete with a Henry Moore sculpture from 1978.
