Vienna is one of the most exciting and yet traditional metropolises of Europe. Vienna is a fascinating combination of biting Viennese wit, waltz melodies and modern lifestyle.

What would Vienna be without its first-class cultural programme: from museums to palaces, churches, theatres and opera houses right through to fantastic architecture and iconic shops. And last but not least, the absolutely stunning and vibrant nightlife deserves a special mention.
Kick off your sightseeing day in Vienna with a visit to Schönbrunn Palace, the summer residence of Empress Sissi. Let the magical era of the emperors and kings come alive as you trace the history of the Habsburg dynasty. Follow this with a relaxing stroll around the palace gardens and give the overwhelming impressions time to sink in.
After a brief lunch break at a “Beisl”, a typical Viennese eatery, cross over to the island in the Danube.
Romantics can admire the architecture of Vienna’s old town from a horse-drawn carriage, but those who prefer thrills and spills can head to the Prater for a rollercoaster ride.
In the evening, you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to theatre, opera etc. The bills feature all the greatest and best that classical and modern have to offer and you are sure to find a performance of one of your favourites.
You deserve a break
