A city for all seasons

Home of the Habsburgs, the capital of classical music, and the multicultural melting pot of Mitteleuropa, Vienna is one of Europe’s most fascinating cities. Its slow-paced life, architectural variety, and intensely seasonal cultural and gastronomic pleasures make Vienna an ideal destination for visitors. Get ready for balmy summer evenings at wine taverns, mugs of mulled wine at Christmas markets, and strolls through historic streets.

Eat by day, party by night Editors' Note

Café Alt Wien is a good café during the day and a fine drinking establishment after dark, with nicotine-stained ceilings, poster-covered walls and a general air of Paris circa 1968.

The clientele is a mixture of students and gregarious elderly Bohemians. If you can get a table, try ordering the legendary goulash.
