London to Vienna
Board the Eurostar to Brussels after meeting at the St Pancras
Departure Office, continuing on to Ulm, via Frankfurt, where you
overnight. On Day 2, you travel to the stunning
city of Vienna via Munich. On arrival, you are treated to a guided
tour of this magnificent city, which includes the famous
Ringstrasse, the mighty Hofburg Palace and the charming Old Town.
The rest of the day is at leisure ahead of dinner this evening.
Vienna has plenty to occupy you; perhaps visit the Mozarthaus,
where legendary composer Mozart resided for a number of years. Tour
the apartment where 'The Marriage of Figaro' was composed, noting
that curators from the Wien Museum have carefully placed objects
from Mozart's time to replicate the feel of 18th century Vienna.
For the next two nights, your hotel is the 4* Falkensteiner Hotel
Am Schottenfeld, which is conveniently located within walking
distance of Vienna's Museum Quarter and the Ringstrasse
Day 3 is free for you to explore the grand city
of Vienna. Why not visit Schönbrunn Palace? Set in hundreds of
acres of beautiful gardens, the elegant palace is one of Vienna's
architectural highlights. Considered a World Cultural Heritage
site, the Baroque estate was owned by the Habsburgs, and is kept
largely in its original condition. Designed by Jean Trehet in 1695,
the gardens boast an orangerie, a palm house, which dates back to
1882 and features plants from around the world, and a maze.
Alternatively, you could take the lift up the Donauturm, with its
150-metre (492 feet) high viewing terrace, for panoramic views of
the city and beyond.
