Vienna | a city made for lovers

With its own food culture, (Viennese ≠ Austrian), vineyards within driving distance and claim to the most liveable city in Europe, Vienna is not a place that easily disappoints.

While all of the above is true one only needs to reach for a ’Lonely Planet Guide’ to find out for themselves. Earlier this year we visited Austria’s capital to see what lies beneath,and what we found was a city that respected its past while fully embracing the contemporary. Find our most loved locales below…

The best way to get to know Vienna is by foot. Take an afternoon stroll through Donaukanal and see how the locals enjoy a summer’s day.
