It’s easy to see why Vienna is dubbed the ‘cultural capital’ of Europe. It’s long history of musical excellence is second to none, with Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert and Johann Strauss all calling Vienna home. Even today the Vienna Philharmonic orchestra is acknowledged as one of the world’s best, and the Vienna Boy’s Choir packs out venues wherever they tour.
While we were there they were either packing up or setting up for the Vienna Film Festival (it was hard to tell), as well as the Food and Wine Festival that runs in conjunction with it. There’s over 100 museums for you to choose from and there’s always opera, theatre and other festivals to satisfy your cultural urges.
It’s also quite the romantic city for couples out there wanting to spend some quality time together for a few days. From narrow medieval streets to beautiful squares to the magnificent buildings lining the RingStrasse, you’ll be inspired by the atmosphere of this picturesque destination. It’s not so easy to be all romantic with a two year old wanting your attention at every possible moment, but a bit of hand holding and a sneaky kiss here and there is still possible!
We thoroughly enjoyed our three days of wandering around clean and safe Vienna, and I’m sure you will too. If the likes of the Schonbrunn Palace, St Stephen’s Cathedral, Natural History Museum, Belvedere Castle and Gardens, Hofburg Palace, Sissi Museum, Michaelerplatz, and Freyung don’t do it for you, then I’m afraid you’re very hard to please.
