Before leaving Albertinaplatz, look up and spot the copper cupola with two bronze sculptures holding a globe advertising for Generali insurance. On the first floor of this building is the Tourist Info Centre of Wien. Their trained and multilingual staff can answer questions, book accommodations, provide maps, sell tickets, arrange sightseeing and help you optimize your time in Vienna. You can also access their free WiFi. Now, let’s take a quick detour from Hofburg Palace to visit the opera house. The famous Wiener Staatsoper is only a few steps away.
