Vienna city breaks

Swoonworthy Vienna makes for a charming city break. Sweeping boulevards are an architectural dream, with baroque, medieval and imperial touches giving the Austrian capital a frozen-in-time feel. And the history doesn’t stop there. You’ll find elegant cafés standing shoulder to shoulder with atmospheric wine cellars and traditional taverns. If you’re not following your nose, listen out for orchestral tones, as classical music is big business here. Concert halls and jazz bars are the main magnets come night fall. Whether you’re booking a city break to Vienna in summer or winter, it’ll steal your heart!

Culture’s in no shortage here, with world-class museums huddled into Vienna’s centre, most in jaw-dropping buildings. Begin in the brilliant MuseumsQuartier complex to tick off a multitude of museums. Meanwhile, art from all eras can be found in the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna, along with Egyptian, Greek and Roman antiquities.

After a dose of sightseeing, take a seat in one of Vienna’s famous coffee houses – it’s an essential experience during a trip to this city! Café Sacher is a firm favourite. Order a frothy coffee and a chocolatey slab of sachertorte filled with apricot jam, the signature sweet here, while admiring twinkling chandeliers and vaulted ceilings.
