A city break to Vienna

A city break to Vienna

All dressed up and no place to travel to? A city break to Vienna just might be the answer you were looking for.

Here are a few of the things you should know about Austria and its most charming capital city in case you were thinking of spending a few days here.

The optimal stay: three days minimum to get the feel of the place, enjoy its high life quality, its quiet and all the attractions it has to offer.

Best time to travel: all over the year. Summers are very warm and you will definitely enjoy the sun and the outdoors, roaming endlessly around the cobblestone streets. But winters are also great, especially since one of the best Christmas Fairs in the world is the Vienna one, not to mention the Christmas Concerts held by the extremely famous Philharmonic of Vienna, which bring music into the lives of so many people year after year in a festive venue and with an unforgettable experience.

What experience is there not to miss? Definitely having a hot chocolate or a great coffee in one of the cafes in town. Cafes, restaurants and bistros abound in the city, perhaps more than any other place in Europe. And there is a true cult about having a cake and a coffee out while reading the paper in the morning or even at another time of day.

Places not to miss include the Schonbrunn Palace, the Schonbrunn Zoo, the Belvedere Palace and the Welt Museum, but also other awesome experiences such as a day at the Spanish Riding School.

The city is elegant and stylish, full of amazing architecture and high level of culture. Civilization is one of the first words that come to mind if you want to define the place in one word. There is culture and civilization breathing through ever rock and stone and while in Austria, you will enjoy an authentic European experience.
