For art lovers, of course, the city is renowned as the location of some of the world’s most stunning collections – no fewer than 100 galleries and museums are yours to be explored on a Vienna short break or Vienna weekend break.
But art also very much lives in Vienna, in all forms. In any single weekend, you’ll be spoilt for choice of live performances of every imaginable kind, but the chance to see the famous Vienna Boys’ Choir is definitely one not to be missed, especially if you take your Vienna city break close to Christmas.
Vienna’s nightlife will also delight and surprise in equal measure. As a magnet for fun-seekers of all ages, it you certainly won’t run short of options and ideas, and the beauty is that so much of the entertainment is in the form of live performances.

Inspirational architecture is part of the very fabric of Vienna, with landmarks such as St Stephen’s Cathedral, and the incredible Schonbrunn and Hofburg palaces standing out as absolute must-sees on any Vienna short break.
More than most other European capitals, Vienna is a great location for a family weekend break, and the children will have hours of fun at the traditional funfair and the world’s oldest zoo in Schonbrunn and Prater Park. Then of course, there are the performances by the world-renowned Lipizzaner horses of the Spanish Riding School which are a long-standing family favourite.
Vienna’s geographically central location means there is a fascinating melting pot of cultures on show, and you can get remarkably close to them all if you choose to explore on foot. Alternatively, a cruise along the river Danube will give you a wonderful perspective on all of its architectural riches.
Compact and easy to get around, a Vienna weekend break holds the promise of discovering a great deal of its charms in a short time. Check out the deals and offers we have available now at The Co-operative Travel, and get set for a short break which will live long in the memory!
