Austria's capital city of Vienna is a giddying hub of art, history and music curved along the picturesque Danube River. It's a place where imperial palaces stand alongside iconic modern architecture and warm, welcoming coffee shops patiently wait around almost every corner. No matter what kind of trip you prefer, Vienna holidays never cease to amaze.
Spend a day at the Museumsquartier, a baroque architectural masterpiece fashioned from the old royal stables and home to three of the world's best museums of modern art: the Leopold, Kunsthalle Wien and MUMOK. Vienna holiday packages are also perfect for feasting on classical music. Haydn, Beethoven, Strauss and Mozart were all from Vienna, and the city regularly celebrates its musical heritage. Feel like catching a concert? Of course you do—and you frequently can, at one of the city's many live music venues. You haven’t really lived until you’ve donned your fanciest clothing and attended the symphony.
Exploring the rest of Austria is easy on its superb network of autobahns. You can book one of our Vienna car hire options and be free to discover the country's Alps, where you can ogle the snow-capped peaks and sunny valleys as long as you like. A scenic drive to Salzburg through some of Austria's prettiest non-alpine landscapes is also a must if you have wheels (stay overnight with Salzburg packages to really soak it in).
Vienna is home to Austria's longest shopping street, Mariahilfer Strasse, where you'll find most of Europe's big department store names, including flagship offerings from top retailers. The boutiques of neighbouring Neubaugasse are crammed with local designer pieces and edgy streetwear from Europe's up-and-coming designers.
Viennese cuisine is revered for its hearty meat dishes and mouth-watering cakes and pastries. That’s no surprise just look at Austria's national dish, the wiener schnitzel. Think tender veal cutlet crumbed and pan-fried, then served with a twist of lemon. It's delicious washed down with an award-winning Austrian lager. However, you'll want to leave room for a slice of decadent Sachertorte, Austria's uber-rich, dense chocolate cake that's served with dollops of whipped cream. We’re getting hungry just thinking about it.
After your decadent desserts, you’ll need to work off that sugar high. Vienna has been busy reinventing itself as a capital of European nightlife. The action is spread all over the city, so you're never far from a good time. Explore hipster hangouts in the Seventh District or dance to the Eurobeat in clubs around Prater and the Danube Channel. For an edgier vibe, dive into the all-night underground clubs along the U6 subway line. The best are concentrated between Josefstadterstrasse and Alserstrasse stations.
