Vienna is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, it oozes artistic taste and sheer class and it is one of my favorite places to spend some time away. I always find that Vienna is perfect for a 3 day break, there is sufficient things to do there should you wish to stay a week or so but for me, 3 days is just the right amount of time. Flights to Vienna are pretty cheap from most European cities and if you are a classy lady like me, then it is the perfect way to spend a high cultured weekend away, if it is class that you’re looking for then here’s how you should be spending your time in Vienna.
First thing first, getting from the airport to your hotel, if you are planning on making your weekend classy then I would advise you to get a private airport transfer. Not only does it give you a more personal service and a feeling of prestige, but it also offers you great flexibility. There are several options available to you, personally I like to travel in style and comfort with Blacklane, they are always on time, their communication is outstanding, the drivers are incredibly friendly and the cars are sleek. For me, there is only one way to make my airport transfer.
By far one of the classiest activities that you can do in Vienna is to go to the opera, remember that this is the city where Mozart and Beethoven resided, Vienna is bathed in classical music and opera and you must make the time to go and see it. The most famous opera house in Vienna is the Vienna State Opera, over the years it has seen some of the greatest names in opera grace its stage and if you want a truly special night then that’s where you need to go.
This phenomenal museum is a fine arts museum that houses some of the most beautiful art in the World, even the building itself is stunningly beautiful. The Kunsthistorisches museum is the largest in the country, it has been open since 1891 and features works from the legendary painters such as Raphael, Rembrandt and Michelangelo. A classy weekend wouldn’t be complete without seeing some fine art and this museum is the place to do so.
Spanish Riding School
The Spanish riding school is not only a training center for dressage riders but also a wonderful place to see some amazing performances of the beautiful Lipizzan horses. If you are lucky enough that you are in Vienna when there is a show on then I implore you to go and watch these majestic creatures in all of their glory. The ability of both the horses and the riders will really blow you away and the setting of the school is beautiful, set just outside Vienna with backdrops of the wonderful city. Sunday afternoon is the best day to try and catch a performance and it will give you the perfect ending to your classy weekend.
