Vienna City Holidays

Show on Map

A refined city filled with prestigious palaces

A great place to begin your tour of Vienna is at the Innere Stadt, the historic centre of the capital. It boasts an awe-inspiring array of imperial palaces, landscaped gardens and Gothic churches all lined by the iconic circular road, the Ringstrasse. Your journey will take you past the famed Rathaus (City Hall), the Austrian Parliament Building and the Votivekirche.

The Austrian capital boasts many art galleries, museums and intricately designed churches. Its State Opera House looks as if it has been sculpted out of pure gold.

Plus, if you’re thinking of enjoying a festive break in Vienna, you’ll find more than 20 Christmas markets in the city. Expect to see stalls selling authentic Austrian wares such as wooden toys, ceramics and even fine silk scarves.

The impressive style of a stunning city

To begin your exploration of Vienna, the best place to start is on the Ringstrasse. Originally created to replace the old city walls, this famous road rings the historic Innere Stadt and takes in the most famous attractions.

That includes the incredibly grand Rathaus. Its 19th century Gothic facade is lit up at night with silvery lights that sparkle like jewels.

The Ringstrasse also takes in the Vienna State Opera and the Academy of Fine Arts, so it’s little wonder that the street was a favourite daily walk of Sigmund Freud.

It’s also well worth venturing a little further out to the cream-coloured Schönbrunn Palace. Built back in the 17th century, the residence has enjoyed a prestigious reputation since its foundation by the Holy Roman Emperor, Ferdinand II.

Insider Tip

Kahlenberg makes a great day trip from Vienna. Located in the Vienna woods, it offers spectacular views of the city. Travel there by bus or for the more adventurous it can be reached on foot. You will be rewarded with views over the entire city. Just below the summit sits the Baroque St. Joseph's Church, where you can enjoy the panoramic terrace. A restaurant and takeaway cafe offer not only beautiful views, but also Viennese delights.

Food and drink

Vienna is famed for its decadent cuisine. Enjoy espresso and cream at grand coffee houses, alongside sachertorte (chocolate cake with apricot jam) or a buttery apple strudel. The Neubau district has many gourmet eateries too.


For true luxury, visit the Golden Quarter, a large shopping centre filled with designer labels. Meanwhile, Mariahilfer Strasse is the city’s longest shopping street, offering you some serious variety!


Vienna’s regal past reveals itself in many grand residences, such as the Belvedere, Hofburg and Schönbrunn palaces. It’s a city of culture too, as you’ll see at the State Opera House and the fascinating Museum Quarter. To discover an alternative neighbourhood, take a stroll down the streets of Wieden. This hipster hub draws in a younger crowd and the scene mixes up cool coffee shops, fusion food and modern art spaces.

Getting around

It’s easy to explore the historic centre of Vienna on foot, especially as the Ringstrasse loops around the city’s best sights. The underground system is also astoundingly clean, and offers 24 or 48-hour tickets.
