Vienna is a city that is difficult to beat for culture. So if you’re looking for a Manchester group holiday that is as cultural as it is fun and social, you just may have landed on the perfect city.
Walking in Vienna makes you feel like you’re taking part in a fairy tale, as a you gaze upon the horse and carriage trotting past you. A background of Baroque architecture and imperial history, with Strauss and Mozart providing the soundtrack, is a truly amazing experience; and one that you can only have in Vienna.
However, Vienna isn’t all about history. There’s also much to appreciate in the present. Modernist art and Art Nouveau adds a more modern touch to the city, without losing the emphasis on culture.
Vienna’s culture, however, isn’t limited to art. The city has been know for its café culture, namely coffee and cakes, for centuries. To live like the locals, finding one of the local favourite cafes and tasting Viennese coffee and cake is a must. While those that reside her may grab a coffee on the way to work, it is far more pleasant to enjoy it socially. Coffee Pirates, Demel, and Cafe Museum are among the local favourites.
MuseumsQuarter is a Viennese institution and one that any visitor should not miss. It is among the world’s largest cultural sites and is home to century old art, modern pieces, and everything in between. Highlights include the Leopold Museum, which houses numerous famous pieces of Austrian art, and MUMOK, one of the city’s more well-known contemporary and mdoern art museums.
