To be clear, the sky looks so pretty because the map's creators are using a 'mod' to make it look realistic. Normally, 'Minecraft' skies are far more pixelated.

And here's the Vienna Sofitel. We're guessing that there's no mustache along the banks of the Danube in real life, but weirder things have happened.
This is the closest we'll get to a skyline, and it does a great job of showcasing the actual cityscape of Vienna.
