For those that appreciate the finer things in life, few cities have as much to offer as Vienna, whose illustrious history is accompanied by great beauty and charm.
Straddling the banks of the Danube and linked by a series of magnificent bridges, Vienna is a city known for its palaces - from the Schoenbrunn to the Hofburg - and is celebrated as the home of such luminaries as Ludwig Van Beethoven, Gustav Klimt, Sigmund Freud and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Its magnificent museums and art galleries are complemented by the beautifully preserved architecture of its old town. The city is home to a thriving operatic tradition and a vibrant cabaret scene, and is admired for its culinary inventions, including the Wiener Schnitzel, and excellent restaurants. You'll find that a holiday in Vienna provides an opportunity to experience the very best of what Europe has to offer and a visit to an enchanting Christmas market is the icing on the cake.
