A grand imperial jewel
BOOK BY 30TH NOVEMBER*
Few festive markets enjoy a grander or more romantic setting than those held in the elegant Austrian capital. Here the magic of Advent sparkles against a backdrop of baroque palaces, shopping arcades, churches and museums. Join us for a marvellous, four-star festive break.
Fly to Vienna, then board our coach for the transfer to your hotel. Check in, then relax or head out to enjoy your first evening in the city.
See the imposing buildings and squares of the Ringstrasse, the Hofburg Palace, and the celebrated coffee-houses of the ancient Innere Stadt on this morning's guided tour, then stop to wander Vienna's most famous Christmas markets - held in the idyllic lanes of Spittelberg and on triangular Freyung Square.
After time to explore, we'll continue to the Schonbrunn Palace. Browse the stalls of the Christkindlmarkt held here, in the great courtyard, before we round off the day with a warming tipple at a schnapps museum.
Spend another day exploring Vienna's Christmas markets (some stores may be closed on Sundays), or join our optional full-day excursion and cross into Slovakia. Here we'll visit the Slovakian capital, Bratislava. Set beside the Danube, close to the borders of Austria and Hungary, it's a city where glorious palaces and churches proclaim a cosmopolitan history.
Bid farewell to Vienna, and return to the airport to check in for your flight home.
