Make your next city break as sweet as it can be when you book Vienna flights...
Apple strudel, Sachertorte, pastries, cakes, chocolates… your sweet tooth will be in sugar-laced heaven in Vienna, where coffee and cake is more necessity than nicety.
It might not take much more than this to whet your appetite. But if you need another nudge towards clicking on search, how about these treats: the Spanish Riding School, Schonbrunn Palace, the Vienna Theatre, horse-drawn carriage rides, Christmas markets, the Hofburg Imperial Palace.
It’s a year round destination too. The festive shopping and cosy cafes draw visitors in winter and the many sights attract tourists in the warmer months, when longer days mean more to see and do.
