Where to stay in Vienna
When choosing accommodations in Vienna, apartments offer savvy tourists a great alternative to expensive hotels. HouseTrip has a number of quality holiday apartments in Vienna, from compact studios perfect for singles and couples through to large, multi-room properties ideal for families and friends to share. You might opt for a cottage in Vienna near the vineyards in the northwestern part of the city for sweeping views in a country like setting. Alternatively, experience the grandeur of a villa in Vienna in the Hietzing district near Schonbrunn Palace, where the Habsburg family once spent their summers near the delightful Viennese Woods (Wienerwald).
When to go to Vienna
Holiday apartments in Vienna offer exceptional delights for tourists at any time of year. Winters are cold, but unbeatable for their atmosphere and incredible Christmas markets, where you'll find stalls selling hand crafted souvenirs, mulled wine and roasted chestnuts scattered throughout the city. Most of the waltzing takes place during balls held in January and February. Summer is one of the best times to book a holiday apartment in Vienna, when warm sunny days draw out crowds to the many parks and the Danube Island, where many summer music festivals are held. Autumn, meanwhile, sees the return of Viennese cultural icons, from horses and choristers to opera. If you're lucky enough to stay in Vienna apartments during the wine harvest season, be sure to try the still-fermenting young wine, called Sturm.
Getting to and around Vienna
Most tourists who book holiday apartments in Vienna arrive via flights to Vienna International Airport (Flughafen Wien-Schwechat). Your most economical option to reach the city is by commuter train (S-bahn), which takes about 30 minutes. You can also opt for one of the coaches that run regularly. The fastest option to reach your Vienna apartment is the City Airport Train (CAT), which will whisk you from the airport to the city in 12 minutes nonstop. Once you arrive, you can venture from your holiday apartment in Vienna on the extensive public transport system, particularly the excellent underground, which operates 24 hours on the weekends.
The capital of Austria, Vienna is a city of contrasts - wonderfully historic, yet increasingly cosmopolitan. If you're staying in a holiday apartment in Vienna, you should start in the city centre, a member of the UNESCO World Heritage List and often described as an open-air museum. It's no wonder Vienna apartments in this part of town are so popular. Here you'll see St Stephen's Cathedral, where a climb to take in the incredible views from the tower-keeper's room is a must. For a macabre look into Vienna's past and to understand the Plague, visit the skeletons in the underground catacombs. Close by you'll find the Hofburg, which was the imperial seat of the Austrian Habsburgs. It is open to the public and includes such sights as the Lippizan horses, crown jewels, imperial apartments and a delightful butterfly house.
If your holiday apartment in Vienna is central, then you will easily find the Ringstrasse, a ring-shaped boulevard built on the site of the old city walls in the mid-1800s. Lined by grand buildings like the opera house, city hall (Rathaus), Volksoper theatre, university and St. Charles church (Karlskirche), the best way to see it is to take tram lines 1 or 2, which run in circles around the old centre. Art and culture fans in Vienna apartments will delight in Vienna's museums. The Museumsquartier is a hotbed of incredible modern art with the likes of Klimt, and the huge courtyard serves as an outdoor lounge during the warmer months. Next door are the twin museums of art and natural history. The museum of the city of Vienna provides a fascinating glimpse into the city's past.
Leave your holiday apartment in Vienna and plan a day to see Schönbrunn Palace, where the gorgeous grounds and stunning palace interiors are sure to impress. Hike up the hill for a coffee and cake at the Gloriette for dramatic vistas amidst fountains. You might also like to visit the animals in the adjacent Tiergarten Schönbrunn (Vienna Zoo).
When hunger strikes, you can't beat a classic wiener schnitzel and side of erdapfel salat (potato salad), followed by a steaming bowl of apfelstrudel (apple strudel) or a slice of sachertorte. When you choose holiday apartments in Vienna, you can also make the most of the city's fabulous farmers' markets. One of Vienna's most famous and most popular food markets is Naschmarkt, home to a range of stalls selling foodie delights from fruit and vegetables to pickles, cheeses, breads and meats.
