Holiday in Vienna at Christmas is the right choice

Holiday in Vienna at Christmas is the right choice

24.12.2014
The Natural Science museum, the Zoo, the treasury of Habsburgers and the Christmas fairy will make your Christmas unforgettable!

This year we went to Vienna for Christmas. We had booked the tickets in advance and saved up a lot. To do the same is a nice idea for the hotels as well. To get to the hotel from the airport you can take the aeroexpress train, but we took a taxi.

The weather

The weather is not rather nice. During the six days of our holiday there was only a single day without any rain. The temperature was +2 to +4C. Fog, humidity and lots of rain describe winter weather.

The City

The Austrian capital is famous for its wonderful buildings, numerous gardens and parks as well as the architecture. There are their own outstanding people as Mozart and the empress Sissi. Everything reminds about them everywhere. You can easily find a concert of classical music.

As for the traffic, Vienna is like other European cities. The underground goes down only in the centre of the city. The stations look like walkways. There are no pay-gates either.

You can buy a ticket in a special machine, and it is useful to know that you can switch to Russian. You can buy a special card and use the public transport without any limits.

The main attractions

We made our own list of attractions. Unforgettable impressions were caused by the Natural Science museum. There are lots of exhibits. You can watch some documentaries and go back in history.

St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Schonbrunner Zoo, the Natural Science Museum, Habsburgers’ treasury, Art History museum and Sissi museum are worth seeing. Each of the places is unique. There are some rare animals in the Zoo. There are some entertaining exhibitions in the Art History museum.

All the landmarks are quite interesting for tourists. Most of the museums are in the beautiful palaces. It is clean and in good condition everywhere.

There are a lot of Christmas markets in Vienna. The main is near the city hall.

The cuisine

We have tasted Wienner Schnitzel, the Sachertorte, the Tafelspitz and Viennese coffee. Actually all the meals do not usually impress people, but tastes differ.
