Sitting on the banks of the River Danube in the north-eastern part of Austria, Vienna (or Wien) is the second largest German-speaking city in the world (Berlin takes the top spot). You don’t need to brush up on your German lingo though as English is widely spoken by the friendly residents of this attractive destination.
Music, obviously, has a big place in the heart of soulful Vienna. Among the maze of architectural styles in this city, which include Baroque, Art Nouveau and Medieval, are buildings that house museums dedicated to music. There are plenty of venues where you can hear the beautiful sounds of Vienna’s most talented musicians too. Consider booking tickets for performances at venues such as Schonbrunn Palace, the Vienna Theatre (Theater an der Wien) and the State Opera (Staatsoper).
