Steeped in history, Vienna is a significant European cultural hub. Its tradition of theatre, opera and fine arts, combined with breath-taking medieval and Baroque architecture, make it one of the top tourist destinations in Europe. Vienna regularly comes first as one of the world’s most liveable cities, thanks to its unique combination of modern and ancient qualities. You’ll discover cosy coffee houses, bijou wine taverns and a vibrant welcome everywhere you go. As well a musical heritage – Mozart, Strauss and Beethoven all lived in the city – Vienna is renowned as the home of the Spanish Riding School with its famous Lipizzaner horses. And you can see it all by booking a Flybe flight to Vienna today.
Vienna has some of the most unusual nightlife venues anywhere, from canal boat clubs on the Danube River to disused subway dancehalls and even a mobile disco built into a tram. Combined with the hundreds of microbreweries, lounge clubs and garden bars peppered throughout the beautiful old city, a night out in Vienna is always going to be buzzing. Start your evening at the hip On Market on Linke Wienzeile, before sampling some traditional Austrian fare. Goulash with bread dumplings and frankfurters with horseradish are served at trendy Vollpension on Schleifmühlgasse. For an evening of culture, you’re clearly spoilt for choice in Vienna, but an excellent starting point is the opulent Vienna State Opera house.
You won’t be bored shopping in Vienna. Almost all major department stores can be found on Mariahilfer Strasse, where you can also pick up a bargain amongst the myriad tiny shops that sit between them. Less glitzy is the Südtiroler Platz, the recently remodelled pedestrian area where soothing fountains flow and you can stop for a leisurely coffee. Don’t miss Naschmarkt just off Karlsplatz, an ethnic open-air market that will satisfy even the most demanding culinary appetite.
A great place to start is right in the centre of Vienna at the Imperial Palace Hofburg. The 13th century home of the Imperial family until 1918, you can tour the Imperial apartments and view the stunning art collections within. Visit the Mozart Museum on Domgasse or the world’s oldest zoo, the Tiergarten, and after your culture hit head to chocolate heaven at Xocolat in the stone arches of the Ferstel passage where you can watch the chocolatiers at work and take part in a workshop. You can even hit the beach. The banks of the Danube either side of the Neue Donau channel are a hub of bathing, boating and cycling.
