Vienna is one of the most picturesque capital cities in Europe, a destination that is rich in historical landmarks but also modern, vibrant and forward-looking. Once the seat of the Hapsburg Empire, Vienna bears the trappings of past glories, particularly in the city centre which has been awarded UNESCO World Heritage status and is rich in incredible architecture. Whilst parts of Vienna are like an open air museum, other districts are distinctly modern, with luxury hotels, glitzy shopping centres and exquisite restaurants.
This award-winning airport is one of the most popular in Australia, taking business and leisure travellers to destinations all over the globe. Qatar Airways flights from Melbourne take you to our hub in Doha, and the sheer comfort and luxury of Melbourne Airport means that your journey is a pleasure from the very start.

A bus service runs from the long-term parking area to the main terminal. The Skybus to, and from, the airport runs from the city centre every 15 minutes, while other bus services run throughout the day. Taxis are plentiful, and a pre-book limousine service and car rental are also on offer.
Arriving in Melbourne
Qatar Airways flights from Melbourne depart from Terminal 2, which handles all outbound international flights. An expansion scheme was completed in 2012, providing greater space for retail outlets and passenger lounges.
Because Qatar Airways uses the new A380 Airbus, most departures will be from Gate 9 and11.
Facilities and amenities

A number of Australian produce outlets are also located in Terminal 2, as well as luxury accessories retailers and shops selling everything from surfing paraphernalia to perfumes and watches. There is also a large number of food options, from small cafés to excellent restaurants serving international cuisine.
Austria’s capital and a city steeped in history and culture, Vienna is the home of the Waltz, renowned for its architecture and is a commercial powerhouse of great importance in Europe.

Book a flight to Vienna with Qatar Airways and you’ll be surprised by the warm welcome in this city of refinement. From the cobbled streets to the quaint cafés, the art galleries to the stunning landscape that surrounds the city, Vienna is an ideal destination for both leisure and business travellers.
Vienna has more than its fair share of historical buildings, most of which make up the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Head for the Innere Stadt to explore Stephansdom (St. Stephen's Cathedral) and the two most popular museums, Kunsthistorisches Museum (Museum of Fine Arts) and Albertina.
Schloss Schönbrunn palace is located in the Outer West district, and is probably one of the finest palaces in Europe. Home to the Habsburg summer palace, it is comparable in size and impact to the Palace of Verseilles, and its zoo is the oldest zoological park in the world. The best way to see everything that the palace offers is to take a guided tour.
Close to the palace you’ll find the Technical Museum, a hands on experience that explores not just technical development, but its impact on the growth of the city. And originally designed to be a summer residence for Prince Eugene of Savoy, the Belvedere is split into two halves - the Upper and Lower Belvedere – and is now a magnificent art gallery housing both contemporary and traditional art, while The Orangerie is home to a stunning collection of medieval tapestries. If you want to pack in as many museums as possible into a short visit then head for the Museum District, home to the Leopold Museum and a cluster of other fascinating and eclectic collections.
