From fairytale castles to breathtaking Alpine scenery, world-class winter sports to the birthplace of Mozart, landlocked Austria is a land of enchantment.
And where better to start your tailor-made adventure than in imperial Vienna, a city unrivalled in its dedication to the music of Mozart, Haydn, Bruckner, Mahler, Schubert, Schoenberg and any number of Strausses.
We can arrange an inside view of the State Opera House and the Musikverein – home of the world-renowned Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra – and a gala performance at the Spanish Riding School, followed by lunch at the Palais Pallavicini. The Museum of Fine Arts, the Baroque Belvedere Palace and St Stephen’s Cathedral all await. But no Vienna tour would be complete with a visit to the 1,440-room Schönbrunn Palace - the main summer residence of the Habsburg dynasty.
Venture beyond Vienna and you could discover the original castle at Dürnstein where Richard the Lionheart was held captive, the alpine peaks and glacial lakes of the Salzkammergut, and the UNESCO-listed Old Town of Mozart’s birthplace - Salzburg. Romantic fortresses, magical castles, fortified abbeys and scenic river cruises along the Danube could all be part of your personalised itinerary.
