One of the most beautiful cities in Europe, Vienna is an essential destination, all year round. Enjoy the historic city in glorious sunshine when you visit in summer, before packing up, jumping on a train and venturing on to see other stunning spots in the Alps region.
If you’re sticking central, there’s plenty to keep you occupied, with a stunning selection of award-winning restaurants, traditional cafes and bars, and tranquil riverside locales where you can kick back, relax and watch the world go by.
Once you’ve enjoyed a stroll along the River Danube and taken in a night cap, save yourself the stress and cost of finding a taxi, and opt for a hotel near the main station. Perfect if you’re a tourist who tends to get lost, opting for accommodation in the main part of town will save you hours of endless meandering about unfamiliar districts. You can choose between numerous excellent accommodations ranging from budget friendly hostels, cosy b&bs to luxury 5 star hotels.
The city has a fantastic public transport system too, meaning if all else fails, you can jump on tram or bus and get back to where you need to be in no time. It’s easy to visit some of the main highlights of the city such as the famous St Stephens Cathedral, the Spanish Riding School or the State Opera House.
Looking to get away this Christmas? Vienna makes the perfect festive destination for a short city getaway. Get warmed up with a glass of traditional mulled wine, or shop for xmas gifts and trinkets as you potter about market stalls and thrift shops. Once the day’s done, head back to your hotel room with your wares and rest up in time to enjoy what tomorrow has to offer.
