Whether traveling as a family, couple, or solo, Vienna is the place to visit in the Spring. It is a magical location, full of beauty and surprises around every corner. Join us as we recall three incredible reasons to enjoy Vienna this spring.
Life Blooms into Action
By March, the snow has retracted and the gigantic ice skating rink at Vienna Rathaus, the spired town hall, has ended. The city transforms with blooms of every color. Everywhere you turn to walk, blooms greet you, from the parks to the café window boxes. Even the street markets bloom with seasonal offerings. So, grab a coffee and light jacket and head to the park or street market. These are the perfect places to watch the locals bask in the Spring sun.
Looking for More Color?
With Spring comes the Easter markets found around Old Town, the Prater Amusement Park, Schonbrunn Palace, and most upscale neighborhoods. In these markets you will find a treasure trove of marzipan bunnies, beautiful Easter eggs, and activities. These markets offer entertainment for the children and the young at heart.
Finding the Value in Vienna
Food, shopping, and relaxation are mainstays in Vienna. For the best foods in town, visit Naschmarket for pashminas and international foods. We recommend sampling the goulash at Café Landtmann or the Gulaschmuseum, a restaurant that serves goulash with a fried egg on top.
To experience world-class shopping, head over to Kohlmarkt, Graben, and Karntner Strasse. This pedestrian oasis offers some of Europe’s most expensive stores and plenty of cafes to stop and people watch.
After shopping, head over to one of the many parks for a leisurely stroll. Or stop by Hofburg Palace near the St. Stephen’s Cathedral for a horse-drawn carriage ride through Old Town.
Whether you like to stroll among the fresh blooms or shop in one of the many boutique store, Vienna offer a little something for everyone.
