If you find yourself with a few days of holiday spare this year, why not book yourself a trip abroad? Whilst the hassle of travelling for the sake of just a couple of nights can be a little off putting, there are now plenty of places which are easily accessible and well worth the effort! For example, short breaks to Vienna are becoming more popular nowadays because they enable tourists and holidaymakers to experience the beauty of the city even if they’ll there for a limited period. Let’s take a look at a few of the reasons why this destination makes for a fantastic weekend city break.
Vienna’s International Airport has good transport links to many countries throughout Europe. With so many low cost-airlines running direct flights into the city, you shouldn’t have any trouble in finding cheap tickets and will be there in a matter of hours! The airport in Vienna is just 9 miles from the city and a fast train will take you right to the centre within 16 minutes.
City Transport Systems
Vienna has a good public transport system which is simple to navigate (even for tourists!) so you can cover a lot of the city in a short space of time. Whether you’re heading for the flea market or the ferris wheel, you can get there easily by using Vienna’s extensive network of trains, underground trains and buses. Tickets are relatively inexpensive and if you’re likely to be using public transport a lot during your stay, you can opt to purchase a 24, 48 or 72 hour pass – perfect for those on a long weekend city break!
There’s never a bad time to go to Vienna. Although it can be fairly cold between November and February, the city offers plenty of indoor activities suitable for winter weather. As springtime approaches, it brings milder conditions and throughout the summer, there’s consistent sunshine. This allows you to explore the city in its prime and is the perfect setting for the infamous outdoor parties and festivals held there each year. When the temperatures finally drop once again, it’s a great opportunity to embark on long walks around the beautiful countryside in comfort.
Whilst Vienna is perfect for short city breaks, if you have the luxury of time on your side, it can keep you entertained for weeks. After one short stay in this wonderful city, you might find yourself coming back for more!
