Take a holiday to Vienna
Vienna is a City that really has captured the past with the present. A holiday to Vienna is a cultural haven, filled with magnificent historical architecture such as; the Grand Imperial Palaces, bombastic baroque interiors, squares filled with art museums and the impressive Hofburg. However, unlike other cities Vienna’s remarkable history sits between the arts of the present making it one of Europe’s most dynamic urban spaces; minutes from Hofburg sits the Museums Quartier houses filled with some of the world’s most confrontational art and a courtyard buzzing with Viennese drinking and chatting.
Viennese bars and restaurants are notorious for their abnormal interior designs and architecture offering an extensive choice of cuisines. It is probably one of the only places where you will find Japanese sushi, Austro-Asian and the traditional Beisl restaurants in one street.
There is no need to search for things to do or see in this stylish City, treat yourself to a spectacular show of traditional Lipizzan horse riding at the Spanish Riding School or maybe listen to an exceedingly high vocal performance by the Vienna Boys’ Choir- one of the most well known in the World attracting singers from all over the world and working with the likes of Mozart, Fux, Gluck and Bruckner.
Vienna is one of the World’s most recognized cultures for confectionery, shops are over flowing with hand crafted sweet treats, marzipan, truffles and pastries fit to compete with those found in France and Belgium.
