Take a Trip to the City of Music
This week Bravofly thought to take you on a trip through the gem of Europe, Vienna. What can you expect from a trip to the musical city?
Vienna for a long time was the heart of Europe. Capital of the Habsburg monarchy, it’s the birthplace of Baroque culture and was home to some of the world’s most famous classical composers, including Mozart, as well as the world’s first psychoanalyst, Sigmund Freud.
That means when you head for Vienna, you’re in for a treat, as you arrive at the ultimate city of culture. Take time to feast your eyes on classic Viennese architecture, explore the classical music scene, learn about the history of the Austro-Hungarian Empire at the city’s many imperial palaces or move into the 21st Century and sample Vienna’s frenetic nightlife!

With Bravofly, you get the opportunity to take advantage of the Bravofly flight search engine, which will do the hard work for you and find you the cheapest flights, hotels and tours out there so you can take advantage of the city of music and even have a little spending money to spare! Cheap flights from London to Vienna can be clinched at around £80 if you know where to look!
Vienna has a thousand attractions; you’ll find something no matter what kind of person you are. If you’re a history buff, you might want to travel out to Schonbrunn Palace, the seat of the Habsburg Monarchy. If you adore classic architecture take a trip to the city’s spiritual hub, St Stephen’s Cathedral or if you want to bask in the city’s glorious natural beauty check out the picturesque Stadtpark.
You’re in luck when you take a trip to the city of music as it’s also the city of food! Classic Viennese cuisine is to die for, with staples like Apfelstrudel, Palatschinken and Sachertorte available on practically every street corner. Take a trip into the old town for truly authentic Viennese dishes – Bastei Beisl on the Stubenbastei and Bitzinger’s Augustinerkeller on Augustinerstrasse are simply heavenly!
Vienna has nightlife for everyone whether you want young and wild, chic and cool or even burlesque! If you’re up for a party try the banging Volksgarten Club Disco or if you want something a little more sophisticated, how about a trip down to the Albertina Passage, the dinner club at Vienna’s state Opera house, which is known for its addictive Jazz sets.
