Our view on Vienna city breaks

Great fun and packed with iconic palaces, museums and art galleries - plus, a city break in Vienna is more than just art and classics - the old coffee house culture is still in full swing and the back streets lined with rustic wine taverns, excellent restaurants and shops. A fantastic city to visit any time of the year...
