Vienna City Break Highlights Vienna City Break Highlights

There are so many things to do and see in Vienna that it’s hard to pick just a few. For most people the highlight is simply the atmosphere and beauty of the city itself. In terms of attractions the stately Schonbrunn Palace is a great place to start. This 18th century palace is incredibly opulent; set in vast gardens and home to the Vienna zoo.

The second most popular attraction is the Spanish Riding School with its incredible museum and mind blowing shows. The shows are held every weekend and feature some of the best riding in the world. From these great attractions you can head to one of Vienna’s most iconic spots; the giant Ferris wheel, that offers fantastic views over the city and comes complete with a guided history of the city from Roman times. As a final highlight the Vienna State Opera is a must visit and you should do your best to book tickets for one of the daily performances in the home of Opera!

Vienna Architectural Highlights Vienna Architectural Highlights

Vienna really is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe and the architecture alone is worth visiting for. While the Schonbrunn palace and the Spanish Riding School are key highlights there are plenty of other incredible sights. A good place to start is St. Stephan’s cathedral which stands in the centre of the city. This elegant cathedral was originally started in 1137 and contains a stunning collection of art and historical treasures. You can climb its 136 metre spire for a stunning view of the city; or visit the tombs and crypts under the cathedral itself.

From here head to the Danube Tower which is the tallest building in Vienna standing some 170 metres high. The tower offers beautiful views of the city and the restaurant is well worth visiting. As a final highlight, the imperial apartments are fantastic for their interiors and the exceptional collection of art and silverware they contain. Beyond these highlights Vienna is awash with incredible architecture and you can happily spend your hours wandering the streets soaking up the beauty of this city.

The highlight of any trip to Vienna really has to be the culture. Vienna was the birthplace of Strauss, Schubert, Potuznik and played host to Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms and Mahler among many other notable musicians and composers.

Alternatively try the Musikverien for some of the best classical concerts in the world.

You can also visit Mozart’s house and a variety of other classical treasures throughout the city. Aside from the music Vienna has a whole host of cultural highlights; there’s the Kunsthistorisches museum of fine arts, the natural history museum and a host of the world’s finest restaurants and theatres.  Vienna is a cultural paradise and the local culture is friendly and vibrant wherever you are in the city.

Where to stay in Vienna Where to stay in Vienna

The final question is where to actually stay in Vienna. Flights to the city are very reasonable but, like all capital cities, prices can be steep while you’re there. Staying in the centre gives you a great chance to enjoy Vienna’s incredible atmosphere and the finest architecture but prices are a little higher. For something central but slightly cheaper try Funfaus, Favoriten or Dobling.

Vienna has a fantastic transport system with regular trains and buses; so staying on the outskirts is a great way to save money. Vienna is a beautiful city and anywhere you stay you’ll be treated to a fantastic holiday  location and atmosphere.
