Vienna

Vienna is one of Europe’s most attractive cities, with outstanding architecture and a rich history waiting to be discovered. Home to the Habsburg dynasty, Vienna’s spectacular baroque buildings sit alongside more modern constructions in a vibrant city centre which thrives upon its coffee shop culture. The Austrian capital is also home to a fascinating Museum Quarter where you can observe historic relics and more modern art, and well as the world-famous Spanish Riding School, where you can see the impressive Lipizzaner horses. A UNESCO Heritage site that has preserved its proud heritage, Vienna possesses a majestic beauty which makes it perfect for a romantic break.
