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. At the red counter, pick up a single for less than a quarter of the price of the CAT (€3.90). Both trains leave from the same platform and take you to Wien Mitte – the central railway station.
From there, jump onto the speedy underground rail system, the historic tram or public bus. All forms of Vienna’s excellent public transport network take the same tickets.
