Vienna is the perfect place for a weekend getaway. Right in the heart of Europe, Vienna can be reached by direct flights from various destinations. And already the arrival in Vienna can be special. When arriving by plane at the Vienna International Airport (VIE), the VIP service offers personal service in a pleasant atmosphere, combined with the utmost degree of flexibility and privacy, and time savings, too.
Excellent all-round attention can be found in one of our partner luxury Viennese hotels, such as Hotel Sacher Wien, Palais Coburg Hotel Residenz, Palais Hansen Kempinski Vienna or Park Hyatt Vienna, which all make your getaway an unforgettable stay.
Go on a shopping spree in Vienna - the city with imperial flair, and you'll find yourself surrounded by the residences and palaces of emperors and princes. The Goldenes Quartier in the Old City is one of the most exclusive shopping districts in Vienna. The flagship stores of Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Valentino, Saint Laurent, Prada, Miu Miu, Brioni, Alexander McQueen, and others can be found here.
The former imperial and royal court purveyors once supplied the imperial household and still stand for the finest quality handcraft today. The traditional Viennese company Scheer produces elegant made to measure shoes by hand for generations. Other royal and imperial court purveyors such as the glass and lighting manufacturer J. & L. Lobmeyr, the Augarten porcelain manufactory or the jeweler A.E. Köchert guarantee unique products to this day. Fans of luxury will also find a bunch of top-quality jewels on Kohlmarkt, where Cartier, Chopard and Tiffany are represented alongside traditional Viennese firms such as Wagner, Bucherer and Schullin. And just a couple of steps further along at the court confectioner Demel, the artistically designed display cases entice shoppers inside for a well-earned coffee break between purchases.
In Vienna, pampered gourmets will also experience special flavour moments. Viennese cuisine is interpreted and perfected with a modern twist by leading Austrian restaurateurs. And numerous styles of international cuisine are also prepared to the highest standard in the restaurants. Some 133 Viennese restaurants currently hold the coveted toques of Gault & Millau, while a total of nineteen Michelin stars are shared between thirteen restaurants in Vienna. The Restaurant Amador is Austria’s first three-star restaurant. Four further restaurants have been awarded two stars each by the Michelin Guide: the Steirereck im Stadtpark, Konstantin Filippou, the Silvio Nickol Gourmet Restaurant in Palais Coburg and the restaurant Mraz & Sohn. The Steirereck also comes in 17th place in the "World's 50 Best Restaurants" and is a pioneer when it comes to cooking with vegetables and herbs. The wine cellar of Palais Coburg is one of the best in the world and offers true wine rarities for aficionados and connoisseurs.
Quite apart from the cultural mainstream, private experiences can be arranged such as an evening guided tour of the collections in the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna, the Albertina or the Belvedere, the "Exclusive Morning Experience" in Schönbrunn Zoo or a tour with an individual program in the Wiener Konzerthaus. "The Private Dance Academy by waltz in Vienna" holds exclusive waltz dance courses in an elegant ambiance and provides an introduction to the 200-year-old tradition surrounding Viennese ball culture. Art lovers and collectors can head for the many galleries in Vienna as well as to art fairs such as viennacontemporary or the auctions in the Dorotheum, Palais Kinsky or the WestLicht Gallery.
