Austria – Historic Centre of Vienna

There’s no better time than winter to visit Austria’s cultural capital.

A two hour Easyjet flight from Bristol Airport takes you to Vienna – capital of Austria, UNESCO World Heritage Site, home of Strauss, Schubert, Klimt and Freud, and where you’ll find some of Europe’s best Christmas markets.

To get into the city from Vienna International Airport, follow signs for the City Airport Train (CAT) but don’t catch it.
