View Dates & Prices

Set in the heart of Europe, Vienna is an imperial jewel, waiting to be discovered. A stay in Vienna is like taking a journey back in time to the days of the empire, when the city ruled not only Austria but a large part of central Europe.  It is little surprise that today Vienna’s historic centre is a UNESCO world heritage site. Examples of the city’s illustrious history, including 27 palaces, lie on virtually every street corner.  

History buffs, art lovers, shoppers and gourmets will not be disappointed in Vienna, with a vast choice of places to see and things to do.  The area encircled by the grand boulevard known as the Ringstrasse presents the visitor with an impressive choice of parks, monuments, theatres and galleries, including the Vienna State Opera, Spanish Riding School, Belvedere Palace and Kunsthistorisches Museum. 
During a day’s sightseeing, the capital’s coffee houses are the perfect places to immerse yourself in Viennese tradition and atmosphere, while enjoying a delicious coffee and cake.

Holiday highlights

Schoenbrunn Palace 

This baroque palace (1700) is one of Vienna's most popular attractions. It has 2000-rooms-worth of splendour (of which 40 can be visited), complete with a classically landscaped garden. Additional attractions include a maze and the world's oldest zoo. 

Imperial Palace 

Known as the Hofburg, the Imperial Palace is an enormous monument to Habsburg culture and heritage. The Habsburgs set up house here for more than six centuries, periodically adding new sections to the palace. 

Ringstrasse

Emperor Franz Joseph ordered the demolition of the city walls 130 years ago. In their place the Ringstrasse was built, the showpiece of the monarchy, bordered by such important buildings as the State Opera, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Museum of Natural History, the Parliament, City Hall and Vienna University.
