Book a flight to Vienna with Qatar Airways

Book a flight to Vienna with Qatar Airways for a dose of Austrian style, which will stay with you for years to come.Vienna’s city centre is on the UNESCO World Heritage list and its cultural delights are evident on every corner. Austria’s stunning capital is packed with museums, galleries, historic buildings and world-class restaurants, and it draws an annual deluge of visitors from across the globe.

Vienna claims fame for its electronic music scene and its coffee culture, as well as the art and architecture spread across its 23 districts.

Vienna highlights

The 14th-century Gothic spire of St Stephen's Cathedral overlooks a ravishingly attractive cultural centre; take in Vienna’s Imperial Palace and the ostentatious Schloss Schönbrunn before picking one of its many Mozart attractions.

  • Tourist attractions

    On your trip to Vienna, the Innere Stadt is where you will find most of the city's tourist attractions. St Stephen's Cathedral (Stephansdom) with its Gothic spire, has been dominating the skyline since 1359. Look out for the intricately tiled roof and the Baroque high altar, a masterpiece of ecclesiastical art.

    Vienna's Imperial Palace, now home to an array of museums and the office of the Austrian president, dates to the 13th century and is mesmeric in its grandeur. In the outer west district, take a tour of Schloss Schönbrunn. Consider paying a little more for the Grand Tour, to see as many rooms as possible.

    Visit Mozarthaus Vienna, the city's most popular (but by no means its only) Mozart attraction. The famous composer lived here for more than two years, while creating The Marriage of Figaro. The exhibition offers a fascinating insight into the great man’s sojourn.

  • Leisure activities

    Vienna City Council hosts Ball Season during most months, when glamorous black-tie events are held in locations such as City Hall or the Imperial Palace. During the summer, Vienna runs numerous open-air film festivals, where you can enjoy a little world cinema with a picnic.

    Another highly recommended stop for a trip to Vienna is the Wiener Riesenrad Ferris Wheel, built in 1897. The city views from the top, at an elevation of 65m, are spectacular. In colder weather, a hop-on, hop-off guided tour on the ring tram is a great way to orient yourself and ensure you don't miss any sights.

  • Food

    Viennese menus can be baffling for tourists and portions in most restaurants tend to be large. For one of the best ways to sample local delicacies, try the city's street food. Other street food has Turkish influences – doner kebab, roasted meat sandwiches and Austrian sandwiches can be found at most stalls and in some delis.

    It is also worth visiting one of Vienna's bakeries, where you can order a coffee along with your breakfast pastry. Look out for specialities such as apfelstrudel (apple strudel), gulasch (hotpot) and wiener schnitzel (breaded, deep-fried veal) in the city's traditional restaurants.

    Kaffeehäuser (coffee houses) are popular here and people-watching is a rewarding pastime. You will find dozens of varieties of coffee and many cafés also serve cakes and light snacks.

  • Shopping

    Vienna's markets offer something for everyone and Naschmarkt, 1.5km of stalls on Linke Wienzeile, sells everything from food, spices and oils, to vinegars, fabric and jewellery.

    If you travel to Vienna in November or December, the traditional winter markets are a delight. Vienna's largest, Rathaus, is a great place to enjoy ice skating. Spittelberg Market and Freyung Market, which focuses on original gifts and handicrafts, are also recommended.

    Viennese confectionery shops are a feast for the eyes, before you even start to sample their delicacies. Brightly coloured macaroons and exquisitely packaged chocolates adorn the shelves, and make ideal gifts. Alternatively, head for Augarten Wien, Vienna's finest porcelain manufacturer. You can book a guided tour of the factory or shop for hand-painted vases, ornaments and dinnerware.
