Cheap flights to Vienna
Arguably one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, Vienna is a must for anyone who appreciates stunning architecture and fabulous settings. Tourists come to Vienna to experience its famed beauty, its idyllic setting on the River Danube and its vast green spaces that make up over half of the city. We’re not lying when we say Vienna is one of the most architecturally stunning cities in the world. And everywhere you look you’ll see remnants of an imperial past, from imposing Baroque squares to Art Nouveau edifices and, of course, those famous palaces
Vienna is having a ball in January and February, when the entire city seems to dust off its glad rags and waltz across to an opulent palace. Some 450 balls are held - the Coffee House Owners' Ball (17 February) and Opera Ball (23 February 2017) are among the grandest.
Winter days are best spent mooching around Vienna's first-class galleries. Some of the world's finest graphic art hangs in the Albertina, former Habsburg's imperial apartments. The emphasis is on French drawing in the exhibition Poussin to David (25 January to 25 April), while Egon Schiele masterpieces are in the spotlight (22 February to 18 June) to mark the 100th anniversary of the artist's death.
Golden autumn days are made for strolling in Vienna's parks and gardens. Wrap up warm and take a bracing walk along the chestnut-lined avenues of the Prater, for instance, stopping to ride high in the Riesenrad ferris wheel, which reduces the city to toytown scale.
