All the highlights as advertised by a most knowledgeable guide. I came to Vienna to see Klimt paintings and Otto Wagner buildings and drawings. Katharina escorted us elegantly thru the main sites, especially the Belvedere and let us know of others - the Wien Museum Wagner exhibit - that we could explore on our own.
