European Stopover & City Map

This 4-day Vienna short break takes in the best of Austria’s capital before exploring delightful Salzburg.

Settle into your accommodation on the edge of Vienna’s old town, then spend the next day sightseeing Vienna by coach and cruising on the Danube. You’ll see Danube Tower, the colourful Kunsthaus and Hundertwasserhaus buildings, and journey outside the city for views of the nearby vineyards. Much of Vienna’s charm however lies in just roaming its streets, so take some time for this as well, with a cafe stop or two to watch this grand city go by.

Austria’s musical heritage is legendary, but nowhere more so than in Salzburg. Explore the town of Mozart with an afternoon walking tour that includes his childhood home. Your coach also passes through Hohensalzburg Fortress, one of Europe’s largest castles. On returning to Vienna, why not celebrate that heritage with a night at the Vienna State Opera?
