The elegant Austrian capital

Spend a Christmas to remember in one of Europe’s most romantic wintertime cities.

Your Itinerary

  • Meet your tour manager and transfer into the city and your comfortable hotel. Settle into your surroundings and perhaps enjoy a drink before dinner.

  • The included guided tour will introduce the city, its elegant, UNESCO-listed Innere Stadt of Baroque palaces, great Gothic St Stephan’s Cathedral, sweeping Stephansplatz main square and colonnaded shopping streets. Don’t miss the Imperial Hofburg Palace, perhaps climb to the top of the cathedral’s spire for stunning views, and take a seat in a kaffeehaus to soak up the unique Viennese atmosphere. Festive markets in several locations add to the magic.

    Dine once again at the hotel, at the end of a marvellous day.

  • Merry Christmas! Spend the morning in the beautiful Vienna Woods, a favourite retreat of composer Beethoven, and former hunting ground of the Viennese elite. Visit the abbey at Heiligenkreuz and the hunting lodge at Mayerling, scene of an infamous Royal scandal.

    Spend the afternoon at leisure, perhaps taking a leisurely stroll and returning to one of your favourite spots from yesterday’s walking tour, or simply relaxing at the hotel. This evening, a special Christmas dinner will be served at your hotel, rounding off a wonderful Christmas day.

  • Rest and relax once more after the festivities, or join today’s optional excursion, to Slovakia’s beautiful, Danube-side capital Bratislava, a cosmopolitan mix of Central European influences, glorious Baroque palaces and its own Christmas markets. Wander the stalls of the Main Square or nearby Hviezdoslav’s square, take in the view from the Old Town Hall’s tower or the futuristic UFO bridge spanning the river, and return to Vienna to enjoy a last dinner at the hotel.

  • Bid farewell to elegant Vienna, and transfer back to airport for the return flight, at the end of a wonderfully festive few days.
