Holidays in Vienna

Holidays in Vienna present a delightful fusion of the old and the new, and the classic with the contemporary. As impressive palaces, enchanting heritage, timeless opera and Viennese Waltz give way to colourful contemporary culture and innovative performing arts.

At the historic centre you’ll find examples of the city’s medieval and baroque past, with stunning architecture, grand castles, splendid palaces and picturesque gardens. Music runs through the veins of Vienna’s past and is still a prominent part of the present – enjoy the exceptional acoustics of the State Opera House one day and the vibrant atmosphere of live jazz and blues the next. Go for breakfast at a traditional Viennese coffee house in the ‘old city’, escape to one of the idyllic guest gardens – you’ll have to find them first, or sample mouth-watering, unique flavours at a Viennese ice cream parlour.

Magical Christmas market escapes

Get into the festive spirit with a Christmas market break to Vienna. From mid-November the city’s prettiest squares are adorned with twinkling lights and traditionally decorated wooden stalls. Your first stop should be the Vienna Magic of Advent, a Viennese Christmas market which enjoys a magical setting – with the City Hall as its backdrop. A treat for your senses, warm up with Glühwein, a hot spiced wine, as the nostalgic smell of Christmas treats fill the air. On Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays the sound of Christmas carols add to the already jovial mood. This atmospheric winter break is the ideal opportunity to pick up traditional handicrafts and seasonal gifts ahead of Christmas.
