As well as the city itself, there is some wonderful countryside to enjoy. This includes the Donau-auen National Park, located just north of the airport and featuring wonderful riverside scenery. Sports fans can enjoy easy access up the A4 into the city, with the Ernst Happel Stadium - where the Austrian football team plays its home games - just 14 minutes away.
Eating and drinking
Viennese cuisine is best known for its pastry-based confectioneries, and it is certainly possible to enjoy some wonderful strudels, cakes and pancakes, traditionally with coffee in the afternoon. But there are also many beef dishes, such as tafelspitz (boiled beef stew) and wiener schnitzel, while many savoury dishes contain dumplings.
Things to do
Vienna is a wonderful place to hear classical music, with the city of Beethoven, Brahms and Strauss featuring magnificent venues like the Vienna State Opera, Wiener Konzerthaus or Kursalon Wien.
