Beautiful cultural capital

Situated on the Danube at the foot of the Alps, Vienna is known as the 'City of Music' and has drawn visitors from across the globe for centuries.


Best Vienna travel times

Vienna has a range of attractions to suit every taste. For music-lovers, a trip to the Vienna Philharmonic concert season around New Years is a must. Shortly afterwards, opera enthusiasts can enjoy the Vienna Opera Ball in February. Later in May and June, the Vienna Festival offers all kinds of entertainment, from dance and opera to live theatre. For sightseers and walkers, the months between April and October offer the best weather for heading outdoors to enjoy the city sights.


Before you head to Vienna

In Austria, credit card payment is usually only possible at larger shops and restaurants. Be ready to pay with cash at smaller locations and at museums. Dining out can cost less than €10 per person for a cheap meal, and the typical tip in Austria is around 10%. Remember to tell your waiter exactly how much you want to pay including the tip when settling the bill, because in Austria it is not usual to leave cash on the table.


Vienna information

To get to the city from the airport you can take a train or taxi. The S-Bahn S7 train takes roughly 25 minutes from the airport to the city centre and costs €4.50. For €12, visitors can take the CAT (City Airport Train) with a journey time of around 16 minutes. Taxis are also available, and a trip from the airport to the centre typically costs between €25 and €35. Agree on the price before the journey. Try some authentic schnitzel or sachertorte for a true taste of Vienna.
