After the trip by night train you definetly have to start the day with a nice breakfast in a relaxing athmosphere... Naschmarkt is the place to go! here you are already very close to the old city center.. take a walk and enjoy all the nice old buildings from the 19th century.. Wiener StaatsoperMuseum of Natural History ViennaAustrian Parliament BuildingHofburg PalaceStephansdom..  the afternoon program depends to the age and interest of your kids: Schönbrunn Palace (really nice historical area with a nice zoo next to it) OR Prater (an amusement park - here you really have to take a trip with Viennese Giant Ferris Wheel to take a look over Vienna and take a "Stelz'n" in Schweizerhaus. if you have time in the evening you can relax and enjoy Vieann at sunset by putting your feets in the sand in the beach bar Strandbar Herrmann... enjoy your stay in Vienna!!!

See the Lipizzan Riding School (especially if traveling with kids) book in advance for tickets. Have a Sachertorte at the Hotel Sacher (original!). Everything is fairly close together so I would also recommend visiting the Stephansdom and perhaps catching the tram around the Ring Road so you can see all the beautiful buildings that line the road (incl. the Parliament building). If you have time, visit one of the Palaces - Hofburg Palace is the one closest to the centre.

Hi Tom,
spending a day in Vienna is definitely a good idea, even if it is a little bit too short so see all the interesting things in this city and the surrounding area.
I recommend you visit the Prater, the amusement parc right in the city. This will keep your children from getting bored too fast. Maybe after that, they are okay with a little culture, e.g. a tour through the Vienna State Opera House "Staatoper", the big opera building, or the museum at Karlsplatz with paintings by Egon Schiele and Gustav Klimt.
Besides that, a must-do in Vienna is a visit at one of the citys famous "Kaffeehäuser", wich are usually founded approximately 100 years ago. The interior of most of them is antique and they are very cozy and charming – typical Viennese! My favorite place to have a coffee and some pastry is Café Goldegg, because it is a little bit less touristic than some of the others.
