Hi guys,
I'll be traveling from Prague to Venice and I'd like to make a stop somewhere in Austria, any suggestions?

Vienna is the nicest city i think and a must see city of europe. Salzburg is on the route to Venice but im not so much a fan of it

I love Austria, it's probably my favourite European country after Switzerland to visit. I would agree with going to Vienna instead of Salzburg, the latter is quite a nice city and the scenery is beautiful (the same goes for Innsbruck). However Vienna has a lot more to see and do, some of the architecture is amazing, the people are very nice, the food's great and if you like cycling then it's incredibly cycle friendly. So I'd say go to Vienna, some people seem to like Graz but I've never been there myself.

I've been to both places, and I'd recommend Vienna depending on how much time you have. I spent a whole day in the Natural History museum, as it was immensely interesting, and I'm not even a museum person.

As for the food, I thought it was pretty awful actually.

I guess tastes differ, personally I judge a society by it's sandwiches and Austrian/Swiss/German sandwiches are some of the best around!
