What Vienna (VIE) has to offer

Your flight to Vienna: music, art and history

With your comfortable Lufthansa flight to Vienna you will land at the airport Vienna-Schwechat, from here the City Airport Train, a regional train or a bus will bring you to downtown Vienna. To see the most important sights you can use the well-maintained public transport system. Another very Vienna way to get around are the Fiaker, the open horse carriages that you will find in abundance all throughout the city.

Centuries of architecture

Vienna was the capital of two empires, The Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation and the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The Hofburg Palace in the city and Schönbrunn Palace outside the city limits are the centres of the Austrian monarchy, where Emperors and Empresses ruled over a large part of Europe and built more and more impressive public and private buildings. Both palaces are worth an extended visit. In the Treasury of the Hofburg you will encounter treasures from the Habsburgs, the extended family that once ruled not only Austria, but also Spain, the Netherlands and much more territory in Europe and South America. You can see the imperial crown of the Holy Roman Empire from 962. From their Spanish connection you can still experience the high art of horse riding in the the Spanish Riding School with its famous equestrian performances. They are also located in the Hofburg.

Let the music play

The Stephansdom, Viennas mighty gothic cathedral, is usually on top of the list of things to see. For art lovers the baroque Belvedere Palace is a great place to see works from Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele and Oskar Kokoschka. Especially famous are the Art Nouveau buildings of Vienna, like the Secession building, the birthplace of the style, or the entrance to the mighty Central Cemetery. Here you can also visit the slightly morbid Museum of Death. If you are a music lover, then you are here because of Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, Bruckner, Schubert and Johann Strauß (the older and the younger), who are all buried here. Their work lives on, so go out and see an opera in the Staatsoper, a concert of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and a ball where you can dance the waltz all night long. To get the energy for a night of waltzing, the Viennese relied on their unique food, a blend of all the influences from their respective Empires. Original Viennese Schnitzel, Zwiebelrostbraten and Tafelspitz, with Sachertorte and Kaiserscharrn for dessert should leave you with a bright smile and a full energy level. Enjoy your time in Vienna and don’t miss your Lufthansa flight home.
