Vienna TourOne of the great cultural capitals of the world, elegant Vienna has inspired some of the greatest composers of all time. While music remains central to the city’s ambiance, there is also so much else for you to explore at your leisure here. Visit beautiful Schönbrunn Palace, summer palace of the Habsburg dynasty and a masterpiece of Baroque architecture. Browse the Kunsthistorisches Museum, one of the world’s greatest museums. Stand in awe at the Gothic St. Stephen’s Cathedral. And be sure to experience another great Viennese tradition: a coffee and a pastry at one of the many fine coffeehouses.

Available only with the Air Inclusive Package.

Single supplement: $145

Day 1 - Independent exploration of Vienna

Vienna is famous for its museums, and today you may want to start your discovery of the city with a stop at some of the best. The Secession Building is renowned for its architectural design as well as for its Art Nouveau collections. The Kunsthistorisches, rated one of Europe's finest art museums, has a superb collection of Rubens, along with a large collection of works by Pieter Brueghel the Elder. In the evening, enjoy dinner on your own in one of the city's many fine restaurants.

Day 2 - Independent exploration of Vienna

Today, continue your exploration of the city, perhaps visiting the Spanish Riding School of Vienna. The school trains both horses and riders according to centuries-old methods and is famous for its Lipizzaner horses. Or spend the afternoon at the Hofburg Imperial Palace. Built in 1279, it remains an impressive tribute to the Habsburgs' great power and wealth. Today it houses the offices of the Austrian president, the chapel where the Vienna Boys' Choir performs, and the hall where the Spanish Riding School's Lipizzaner stallions amaze their audiences. Another notable sight is St. Stephen's Cathedral, renowned for its Gothic stonework and the largest bell in Austria. The Schönbrunn Palace Gardens offer symmetrical paths and manicured trees. Be certain to shop at the Nachsmarkt—Austria's largest and grandest open-air market.

If you've already explored the urban charms of Vienna, head for the rolling hills and trails of the Wienerwald or the Prater woods. Beethoven used the Viennese woods for inspiration and often strolled through them while composing music in his head. Strauss also incorporated the woods and their charms into his music. The delightful woods of Vienna are within easy reach of the city.
