From culture to architecture

Culture vultures are invited to visit the more than fifty theatres, opera houses and the hundreds of museums. In Vienna you will find all of the architectural styles. Just take a closer look: the Gothic St. Stephen's Cathedral, the Baroque St. Charles's Church and the Art Nouveau Secession. A colourful alternative on an architectural sightseeing tour of Vienna is the artistic Hundertwasserhaus.

From Mozart to Mahler

Vienna is THE city of music. Ground-breaking composers of global acclaim, such as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Ludwig van Beethoven, Johannes Strauss and Gustav Mahler, have all spent time in the city. Combine a weekend in the city with a musical sightseeing tour of Vienna: Wiener Staatsoper, Volksoper or the Musikverein.


From leisure to luxury

Visit a real landmark of Vienna, the giant big wheel in the Prater-park, and take in the leisurely atmosphere, which at one time accompanied the Kaiser while he hunted on the same grounds. Also experience the luxurious side of Vienna: The numerous Viennese coffee houses are the place to find both the local and international crowd as they enjoy a small espresso or a large mocha after shopping in at the Goldenes Quartier, Vienna's walk of luxury retailers.

The Stateopera Hotel in Vienna

A not so well kept secret among locals: In summer the State Opera displays their current performances outside the Opera House for public viewing.
