Vienna Holidays 2021
Austria’s capital rests on the eastern side of the country, along the Danube River. Vienna holidays are mystic and soulful. Reflecting a tantalizing artistic history, Vienna is filled with amazing cultural highlights thanks to its influence in the arts. Moreover, this wonderful capital has an ever-lasting legacy thanks to the Habsburg monarchy who ruled and called Vienna home for over six centuries. The imperial architecture is perhaps one of the highlights of the city, which still leaves remnants of the past but underlines the opulence of Vienna.
A Vienna city break is eye-opening as much as it is breath-taking. There is an abundance of museums dotted around which offer a greater insight of the Austrian capital. Art takes the forefront in Vienna, with dozens of museums housing collections of imperial artwork. In addition, Vienna is also known as the ‘City of Music’ and there’s no wonder why. Austria being the birthplace of famous composers like Mozart and Beethoven amongst others, ranks the city worlds above when it comes to classical compositions and orchestras.
