Tips for a successful visit to Vienna with children

Do your little ones love horses? A very special tour through Vienna city center can be made in a fiaker or horse-drawn carriage. Attractions along the route are explained by the carriage driver.

You could also enjoy a themed boat ride for children on the Danube and the Danube Canal offered by the DDSG during which, for example, a clown provides entertainment while the parents enjoy the view of Vienna.

Not far from the House of the Sea (Haus des Meeres)  is the restaurant Naturkost St. Josef with connected organic food shop, serving organic and vegetarian lunch dishes as well as soups in various sizes, a salad buffet, snacks and freshly pressed juices. A changing table and toys are available.

You'll receive free information on Vienna and a city map with the opening times of most attractions in our tourist info. The comprehensive and free wienXtra-kinderinfo in the MuseumsQuartier provides information on the current Vienna program for kids.

Children up to 6 years of age always travel for free on Vienna's public transport services. During the Vienna school holidays as well as on Sunday and public holidays, all children up to 15 years ride for free on public transport.
