Vienna

CNNGo links up with the locals in Vienna to discover a hidden side to the city of music. Indie band Deckchair Orange show us a café presenting a modern take on the city's famous coffee culture. They explore the city' preeminent photography museum, which houses one of the world' most impressive collection of vintage cameras - from the oldest in the world to those hidden in walking sticks and ones that have travelled to space. By night, we accompany them to one of Vienna's more unusual restaurants, where the live music takes place in the unisex bathroom. Vienna has a rich musical history. More famous classical composers lived and worked there than anywhere else in the world. Ileana Tonca, soloist at the State Opera, takes us to the graves of Schubert and Beethoven and shows us to her favourite church where their music can still be heard. The country's champion Viennese Waltz dancers, Andy Pohl and Lisa Beck, take us to a breakfast bar with a twist, read their horoscopes at the Tree of Life circle and dance the night away to both classical and techno beats at a former piano making warehouse turned night club, which is illuminated by an impressive array of light projections. Tourists come to Vienna to look at the beautiful buildings. Paul Zeiner likes to climb them. The urban boulder climber takes us to the city's first indoor climbing venue before exploring the street art scene and ending the night with a spot of music courtesy of the Game Boy Music Club, whose electronic beats are generated by their game consoles. Our journey ends with champion ice skater Victoria Hubler, who samples some culinary delights at a weekend food and flea market before sitting down for some sweet treats at her grandmother's coffee shop, which to this day maintains its traditional Viennese flair. The night ends at Kaffee Urania - a late night café which opens at 9pm and closes at daybreak. Every night for the past fifty years, owner Hubert and his dog can be found behind the bar, serving up coffee and cocktails into the early hours of the morning.
