Explore Vienna’s glamorous imperial past and cultural present
Set on the banks of the Danube, the capital of Austria bursts with charm and flair. Discover the elegance of Old Europe on a city break to Vienna as you wander through medieval alleyways and imperial squares.
Great composers such as Mozart, Beethoven, Haydn and Schubert helped to turn Vienna into the classical music capital of Europe. You can visit the hall where Mozart gave his first recital, walk the grounds of Schönbrunn Palace and enjoy a performance at the magnificent State Opera House. Packed with imperial history, Vienna also offers contemporary museums, lively nightlife and, of course, a vibrant cafe culture. Watch the world go by as you savour a slice of delicious apple strudel at your favourite coffee house.
Our Vienna tours feature some of the city’s most impressive sights, including the 13th-century Hofburg Palace, the President of Austria’s official residence. Take a tour of St Stephen’s Cathedral, one of Vienna’s most striking landmarks. It’s a bit of a climb, but we recommend climbing the 343 steps to the bell keeper's room in the South Tower too. From here there are panoramic views across the city’s domes and terracotta rooftops. We have excellent local contacts in Vienna. Just some of the special experiences we can arrange are tickets to one of Vienna’s elegant balls or a visit to the Spanish Riding School.
