I’m loving all these new routes from Dublin Airport – a weekend break to Vienna has never been this cheap!
Elegant, historical, noble, when you think of booking a weekend break to Vienna, you may think it will be expensive. Not anymore! The introduction of daily flights from Ryanair, (actually operated by Laudamotion) has made Vienna more affordable than ever. Hotel prices re quite reasonable too, especially in Winter time, which is the ideal time to visit.
The historical centre of Vienna is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with palaces, museums and churches all located very close together. It is very easy to navigate so you may wish to amble around admiring the stunning architecture, or do what most tourists do and get a horse and carriage. The former Imperial summer residence, the Schonbrunn Palace, is a must visit, with stunning gardens, monuments and even a zoo – it is one of Vienna’s top attractions.
World class composers such as Mozart, Beethoven and Strauss all lived in Vienna so it is no surprise that one of the world’s leading opera houses is here. However Vienna’s music scene offers much more than opera. If you venture out of the historical centre you will find plenty of trendy pubs and clubs that will play music until the small hours.
For a more authentic food scene head to Naschmarkt ( meaning ‘snack market’ ) this is where locals dine and if you venture a little further to the 19th district, you will find plenty of wine bars and even vineyards.
