Things to do

The Spanish Horses
Unless there is a special performance, the Gala performance is on Sunday and costs over 1,000 shillings (1998).  However much cheaper and very nice are the training sessions and the museum. The training sessions take place between 1000 and 1200 hrs, Tue to Sat and cost about 150 shillings entry.  In July/Aug the horses are normally not in Vienna, as they are taken to the mountains for rest and to escape the heat.

Concerts
Mozart and Strauss concerts are available most days... you can buy tickets from vendors near the Strauss statue in the Stadt Park, outside the Opera house and outside St. Stephens Church in the centre of town. Tickets are about 390 to 490 shillings (1998). Note that the Opera House is typically closed for renovations in July/Aug.

Museums
Check with Concierge or tourist centres.

Day trips
To Prague, Bratislava (need a visa) and  Budapest (some nationalities need a visa) are available by Coach, Train and Car Rental. If you drive to Saltzburg, try and stop for lunch at the lovely village of Mond See (spelling?).  This is a beautiful place on a lake, and the village church is the location for the wedding in the movie Sound of Music.

Cheap eats
Try the restaurants on the banks of the Danube near the central part of town.  You can sit beside the river and enjoy an economical Greek or Kebab meal and a drink for a good price with very nice ambience - arrive before sunset to enjoy the river setting.
