Discover Vienna this year

The Austrian capital city of Vienna oozes culture. As the birth place of artists, scientists and musicians, this city is a cradle for creative thinking. Called the City Of Dreams, thanks to its famous son Sigmund Freud, Vienna is a vibrant city full of possibilities.


Popular visiting months and sights

To experience Vienna to its fullest, the ideal time to visit is April through October when the weather is at its best. The Vienna Festival is held in May/June and is a cultural extravaganza showcasing the theatre, opera, dance (modern & classical ballet) and music.


Right time for a memorable trip

Although Vienna has many types of tourist accommodation, it is best to reserve a room beforehand, especially if travelling during busy times of the year. Vienna has a reputation for being expensive to eat out. However, this isn't the case as one can eat an inexpensive meal for around €10. Plan on experiencing local foods including the exquisite chocolate cake called Sachertorte which was originally baked for an Austrian prince more than 150 years ago. Schnitzel is widely available and may be made with veal, chicken, beef or pork, real Wiener Schnitzel is made with veal, however. Tipping in restaurants is expected and 10% is customary. This however is not left on the table, as in some countries. Tell your waiter or waitress how much you wish to add to your bill as a tip.


Finding your way around Vienna

Vienna has an excellent transport infrastructure so getting around is straightforward. From the airport one can take a taxi or save money by taking either the S-Bahn S7 train for €4.50 or the City Airport Train (CAT) for €12. The best value for tourists is a Vienna card which offers unlimited travel (excluding the ring tram) and discounts on museums, galleries and cafes.
