A city break in Austria is an essential trip for even the most seasoned traveller, with no shortage of stunning, world renowned sights, sounds and tastes to discover and admire.
Imbued with an unmistakable sense of history and spectacle, Vienna is the perfect destination for devotees of art, architecture, music and fine dining. Glorious museums, opera houses, theatres, palaces and cathedrals are found in abundance, while delicious, local delicacies will ensure all the senses are well catered for.
Those on city breaks in Vienna often find it difficult to know where to begin their exploration of this grand city; such is the variety and quantity of treasures on offer. Wherever you start, however, you will be rewarded with a memorable, enjoyable and certainly educational experience, be it at the extensive and fascinating Museum Quarter, the stunning Hofburg Imperial Palace, the gothic St Stephen’s Cathedral, the Riesenrad ferris wheel as immortalised by Orson Welles in The Third Man, or one of its many other breathtaking attractions.
Merely strolling in and around Vienna is an edifying experience in itself. Diverse architecture fashioned through centuries of decadent imperial rule under the Habsburgs, fused with flourishes of art deco and more modern creations makes Austria city breaks one of the most visually appealing experiences in travel. The labyrinthine streets add to the romantic, magical feel of Vienna with their rows of charming souvenir shops and cosy cafés - where visitors can rest their feet and indulge in a slice of delicious Sachertorte cake.
