What can I expect in Vienna?
In the summer months, tourists flock to the city and enjoy the warm weather, and while the atmosphere and weather are hot, so are the prices. Assume that accommodation and flights will be more expensive during the high season.
The national language in Austria is German (there is no such thing as ‘Austrian’), although accents and some vocabulary differs. The local Viennese dialect (Wienerisch) is quite different to the accent in Germany so even if you can speak German, you may find it difficult to understand locals. Most people speak English though, especially in the tourist areas!
What is the flight time to Vienna?
The approximate flight time to Vienna is 2 hours 15 minutes
What is the weather like in Vienna?
Typically, the best time to visit is from April through to early October. Late spring through early fall tends to be especially pleasant, owing to its long, often warm and sunny days and abundant daylight. During the winter months, average temperatures are generally quite cold to freezing. Occasionally, cold winds from the nearby mountains can contribute to temperatures falling well below freezing. The rainiest winter month is November, while January is the driest.
Why should I visit Vienna?
Home to numerous museums, palaces, opera houses and the world’s oldest zoo, Vienna is not to be missed. Referred to as one of the most culturally rich cities in Europe, there is more than enough to keep you occupied on your break to Vienna.
MuseumsQuartier is one of the largest cultural sites in the world; here you can find enough art and architecture to last you a lifetime. If you’re looking for music, you’ve come to the right place. The Vienna Danube Island Festival is the largest open-air festival in Europe, and it’s free. The festival includes concerts, cabaret, sports, educational talks and more – something for everyone.
If festivals aren’t your thing, there are plenty of other ways to spend your time in Vienna. The whole city is designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, so you will never be far from a beautiful building. If you’re a foodie, don’t forget to indulge in local Viennese cuisine. Choose from wiener schnitzel, Austrian goulash or Erdäpfelsalat (Austrian-style Potato Salad). For incredible culture and coffee, Vienna is the perfect choice for a city-break this year.
