Located on the banks of the Danube, in the valley of the Vienna Woods, the Austrian capital is one of the oldest in Europe. During the 19th century, it was the world’s music capital and the capital of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. In the early 20th century, it became the Mecca of philosophy and political debate in the Western world, as well as one of the world’s main cultural centres. Take one of our cheap flights to Vienna and discover an impressive city, with an artistic and intellectual legacy that has proved essential in the understanding of European and world history in the last centuries.
The birthplace of Schubert, Freud and Wittgenstein boasts an Old Town that was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site. Here you will find buildings and monuments from three key periods in the political and cultural development of Europe, namely the Middle Ages, Baroque and Gründerzeit. Palaces, such as Schönbrunn, Hofburg and the Belvedere are a testimony to the city’s ancient splendour. The Ringstrasse, a circular avenue that surrounds the centre of Vienna, is home to the majority of the most significant buildings. The Vienna Opera House, the Austrian Parliament, the majestic Votive Church (a prime example of Neo-gothic architecture) and the History of Art Museum (housing works by Velázquez, Titian, Canaletto, Rubens, Rafael and Rembrandt, collected by the Habsburg family), are just a few of the main attractions.
After your monumental visit, head over to the Hundertwasserhaus, a colourful and fantastical residential complex from the 80s, which reflects the work of Spanish Modernist architect, Gaudi. Find the child within you on a trip to the Prater, the oldest theme park in the world, with its emblematic 60 metre tall Ferris wheel. For the perfect end to a perfect touristic day, sample some Viennese sausages, followed by a chocolate ‘Sacher’ cake, and a delicious coffee topped with cream.
